'Law and Order: Criminal Intent' accused of being anti-Semitic
UPI News Service, 03/11/2007
A recent episode of NBC's "Law and Order: Criminal Intent" has been flagged for allegedly promoting anti-Semitic concepts and portraying Israel badly.
The episode also reportedly appeared to promote stereotypes of Jews as disloyal citizens, the Jerusalem Post reported Sunday.
On the February 27 episode a journalist is poisoned after his girlfriend uncovers a foul-up by Israeli intelligence, the same episode also shows Israeli bulldozers destroying Palestinian schools, with at least one character referring to "Israeli brutality."
The show also included a Jewish police captain who runs a cover up for Israel by shutting down an investigation after being urged to do so by the leader of the local pro-Israel group.
Captain Danny Ross tells his officers to stop the investigation and Detective Mike Logan asks him, "Are you a Jew first and a cop second?"
The Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America has sent out a mass e-mail calling for people to protest to NBC because of the episode.
