[Marxism] Munich

Despite my best efforts, I couldn't get through my Netflix dvd of Stephen 
Spielberg's "Munich". I put it on knowing full well that I would find the 
politics reprehensible. I didn't count on it being worse as a movie.

For the first hour or so, it was the standard Arabs from Mars fare, not as 
bad as a Bruce Willis movie but pretty bad all the same. Black September 
bursts into the Olympics dormitory of the Israeli athletes and takes them 
as hostage, gunning down several in the process. It is cinematically akin 
to the opening scene of a science fiction movie when a flying saucer fires 
its death ray at an approaching earthling carrying a white flag.
