In case you missed it the first time.
Mel Gibson Has Israeli Bodyguard
Mel Gibson may have a problem with Jews — they’re responsible for all the wars, they’ve inflated the number of dead in the Holocaust, etc.
But Gibson likes one Jewish person a lot. His personal bodyguard for more than a decade turns out to be an Israeli.
Avi Korein, 45, is a name you don’t hear very often. That’s because Korein is famous for being nearly invisible and staying in the background.
A former nightclub bouncer, Korein worked through the ’80s as Bruce Willis’ muscle. He
even picked up a few minor screen credits along the way.
But sometime before 1996, Korein went to work for Gibson.
Now Korein has his own agency, Screen International Security Services, which has done private security over the years for a lot of Hollywood stars, including Will Smith, Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.
But sources tell me that it’s Korein — who did not return calls from this column — upon whom Gibson has relied over the last decade to keep him out of trouble.
It’s ironic, since Korein is Jewish. But so is Gibson’s publicist.
Korein — who is also rumored to have once been in the Mossad — or Israeli CIA — has his own inner conflicts to deal with.
In 2002 he made a $500 donation to the National Republican Congressional Committee. In 2004, however, he gave money to John Kerry’s presidential run.
Is he a Democrat or a Republican? More importantly, is he even a U.S. citizen?
Korein’s assistant would only say, “I can’t answer any questions,” when I posed that last one. She did, however, acknowledge that her boss works for Gibson.
Gibson, however odd a client for Korein, might take some of his advice. On the Web site for SISS, Korein states: “We realize that ‘perception is reality.‘ How our clients are perceived by the public can impact corporate, diplomatic or personal objectives positively or negatively.”
Those are words Gibson might have taken to heart a while ago.
~Matthew 15 Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
A hypocrite is an actor and exactly what was meant in that wording. Actors are hypocrites and hypocrites are actors. They lie for a living and always will. Lying is their business. Gary Oldman apologized for his rude remark about Jews. “Acting” has spilled over into the main stream and it should be no surprise.
