A good friend of mine was telling me a story about some new people he met recently - he was the first Jew they had ever met. In their curiosity, they had a laundry list of questions based on anti-semitic comments they had heard probably their whole lives.

"No, we do not own the media."

It is good that uninformed people seek to find the truth, but in the 21st Century, one would hope this level of stuff would no longer be necessary. But alas, Rupert Murdoch is not Jewish. Steve Jobs, the largest share holder of Disney is not Jewish. Steven Spielberg is Jewish however, but he does not own the media - he is a filmmaker. Robert Rodriguez is also a filmmaker but he is not Jewish and neither of them run the Evening News.

So my ultra-patient friend sat through the eye-rolling questions. No, they do not sacrifice babies. They do not have a secret base on the dark side of the moon.

And no, Israel does not have a fleet of flying saucers.

Does that mean Mel Brooks had it wrong and there's no "Jews in Space?"
