This quote is from an article about Mel Gibson's film The Passion. The argument of the article is less that the movie is anti-semitic, than that it supports the status quo of those in charge, the Romans in the period of the movie, and if you extrapolate it to today, the US.

"And just to press the point, if Gibson took the trouble to make Jesus speak Aramaic, he could have given his face a darker hue as well. Jesus was a native of the Middle East. "

Makes you think.
