The Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) website reports today (July 28, 2010) that Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone has apologized for saying in a recent interview that the Jewish lobby controls Washington's foreign policy, and that Hitler's actions should be put "into context."
Stone -- in an interview with the (British newspaper) Sunday Times -- also said that "Jewish domination of the media" has prevented an honest discussion about the Holocaust.
During the interview, Stone said that Jews were dictating U.S. foreign policy and that the Jewish lobby "are hard workers." "They are the most powerful lobby in Washington," he said, and added that Israel has messed up U.S. foreign policy for years.
Stone -- the winner of three Academy Awards -- has a Jewish father. In sociology, there is a term used to describe someone who severely criticizes his own ethnic or religious group. It's called "self-hatred."
