Interviews Of Note With/About The Jews

Can I post these together? I really, I don't know. I just read them in quick succession; they're sitting in my browser tabs right next to each other.

Some time ago, the notable anti-Semite Mel Gibson talked with The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg about his upcoming project, a film adaptation of the story of Judah Maccabee, in which forcible circumcision plays an unexpectedly prominent role. An unsettling read for anyone with a circumcision decision looming, I'm sure.

Meanwhile, in The Paris Review, Maurice Sendak has a very thoughtful and enlightening Q&A with Avi Steinberg about his new book, Bumble-Ardy, and of the suspicion, terror and confusion of the child's worldview that lingers for at least 83 years, which is, coincindentally, how old Sendak just turned.

The very end of the Gibson piece is awesome.

He may be an anti-semitic misogynist asshole, but he apparently has a sense of humor.
