The Debt: A Kinder, Gentler Mossad

522 words

The Debt, which opens in theaters today, is a remake of a 2007 Israeli movie about three Mossad agents (played by gorgeous gentiles of course) who are assigned to catch a Nazi war criminal (the surgeon of Birkenau) who is living in East Berlin and bring him to the west. Well, things don’t turn out quite as planned (those pesky Aryan guards again), and they are faced with the consequences.

When the kidnapping goes awry, all three agents seem to form a conscience, and they refuse to kill the former Nazi, not wanting “to be like the enemy.” It’s fairly obvious that this is not based on a true story, to the dismay of the silver-haired New Yawkers in the audience with me. I doubt that hardened spies would decide to “do the right thing” despite their hatred for one of the men who “decimated” their immediate families.

Jessica Chastain

The story is set around the time of the 1967 Six Day War, when Israel had no qualms about massacring Arabs. But what about those evil Nazis, you ask? Apparently they deserve well-publicized war crimes trials. Why? I guess putting Nazis on display might help promote the image of Jews as victims at the very moment they were killing Arabs and grabbing their land.

As for the Arabs, well, leave them to Spielberg. In the film Munich (also shot in Budapest), vengeful Mossad agents (sent by Golda Meier) think that the “right thing” is to mercilessly butcher the Arab terrorists who killed members of the Israeli Olympic team.

Sam Worthington in "The Debt"

In one of the better scenes of The Debt, Rachel Singer, played by the beautiful waif Jessica Chastain, becomes anxious about the mission scheduled for the next day. She reaches out to her love interest, Dave, played by the brooding Sam Worthington, only to be rejected. He has problems connecting, no doubt due to the death of his parents in the holocaust.

Enter Stephen, played by the hunky Hungarian Marton Csokas, who, with the stroke of keys on a piano, steps into the role and gives the Jewish princess what she wants. (If typical Jews were as virile as Marton Csokas, Eric Bana, or Daniel Craig, there never would have been a holocaust. But maybe I forgetting my audience.)

Helen Mirren, who receives top billing, has very little screen time, because the majority of the story is a flashback in which her character is played by a much younger actress.

Marton Csokas in "The Debt"

The Debt is not really worth seeing. The obvious agenda is to counteract the increasingly common comparisons between Nazi Germany and Israel. The movie seeks to sell us a kinder, gentler image of the Mossad by casting attractive non-Jews and endowing them with over-active, typically Aryan consciences. (It would be interesting to compare this remake for foreign consumption to the Israeli original.)

As Mossad revenge movies go, Munich is far better. The agents are more plausible psychologically, and frankly I find their uncomplicated moral ruthlessness in defending their people admirable.

    Between the ‘virile’ or ‘sexy’ pseudo-Jews [even Helen Mirren has her internet fanboys], and the “conscience-stricken” you really have to ask, Who the fuck do they think they’re kidding?

    Jews are the template or prototype for the Liberal mentality: living in a self-congratulatory dream world, and imposing it on us.

    It would be interesting to compare this to Birkhead’s piece a couple days ago, “Ministry of Illusion”. Nothing in German “propaganda” could possibly compare to this “torn from the headlines” nonsense.

    If I had tens of millions of dollars I would produce a movie about murderous Jewish Bolshevik commissars, their bloody murders of innocent Russians, and the attempt to hunt them down and bring them to justice. I might throw in a dash of “Inglorious Basterds” and show scenes of persecuted gentile peasants bashing their skulls in with farm implements.

    Think Abe Foxman and the jewish hypocrites at the ADL would find the artistic genius in that as they did Basterds?
