Re: PS.Daniel Craig played a heroic Mossad hitman in Spielberg's reality-based "Munich"
Rubbish film. An incidental aside: the Jewish/Pharisee Rabbi Hillel (100 BC or so) would have agreed with the jesus bit - when asked to recite the whole torah standing on one leg he said "What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow: this is the whole Torah; the rest is the explanation; go and learn." (some argue that jesus was drawing from this with what he said). But also this in Leviticus: "But treat them just as you treat your own citizens. Love foreigners as you love yourselves, because you were foreigners one time in Egypt. I am the Lord your God." So the contrast between eye for an eye in judaism and golden rule in christianity is not quite accurate (as far as this lay person can tell anyway)
