Washington, July 27 (ANI): Movie director Oliver Stone has come under fire for his comments on Jews and Hitler in a recent London interview, which critics are calling anti-Semitic.

In the Sunday Times in the U.K, Stone, who is half Jewish, complained about “Jewish domination of the media,” and claimed that Hitler did more damage to Russia than he did to the Jews, reports CBS News.

“There’s a major lobby in the United States. They are hard workers.”

“They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f—ed up United States foreign policy for years,” he added.

Israeli leaders and The Anti-Defamation League immediately released statements, branding Stone’s comments as anti-Semitic.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Anti-Defamation League said Stone used an old stereotype “in a particularly egregious fashion by suggesting that Hitler has gotten an unfair shake because of Jewish influence.” (ANI)
