This article gives evidence for some of my fears about what would happen when "The Passion" started showing in other countries -- especially in the Middle East. Arab censors giving 'Passion' wide latitude / Gibson film packs Mideast movie houses

Here's another 'Passion of the Christ' a blockbuster among Arab Muslims and Christians

It seems that many viewers not only see a strong anti-Jewish message -- they think it's part of the film's appeal. A Jordanian Muslim woman says she was moved to tears when she saw the movie at an Amman theater. She says the movie "unmasked the Jews' lies." Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat saw the move over the weekend in the West Bank. He compared the pain Jesus endured during the crucifixion to the suffering he says Israel has inflicted on Palestinians.
