oliver stone Oliver Stone Attacked For Comments on Jews, Hitler

Movie director Oliver Stone has once again found himself in a familiar place – the hot seat.

Stone , who is half Jewish, has come under attack for comments he made to the Sunday Times in the U.K., which critics are calling anti-Semitic.

In a London interview , the “South of the Border” director complained about “Jewish domination of the media,” and claimed that Hitler did more damage to Russia than he did to the Jews.

“There’s a major lobby in the United States. They are hard workers,” he said. “They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f—ed up United States foreign policy for years.”

Israeli leaders and The Anti-Defamation League immediately released statements Monday, branding Stone’s comments as anti-Semitic.
