I don't know if Gibson is an anti-Semite or not.  I do think that some of
the criticism of Gibson and this film are reasonable based on what's known
about it to date, and Gibson's own, often incredibly stupid, public
statements have done little to dissuade his critics.

When the film is released, I plan on seeing it in order to form my own opinion.

I rechecked one of the articles I saved about the film and found a second
source Gibson named for his script.

I believe one was from the 1600s and the other was from the 1800s.  I still
think both sources are dodgy.
