Hollywood actor and director Mel Gibson had his moments back in 2006 when under arrest and alcohol influence made some terrible anti-Semitic statements. His statements were taken with a hard dose of anger by the general public but throughout the years he showed America his real opinion about the Jewish people who has previously attacked.
Mel Gibson has been providing constant emergency aid for the Holocaust survivors in Eastern Europe by the Survivor Mitzvah Project.
According to Conservative Tribune:
“Zane Buzby, founder of the charity, told Extra that the goal of the initiative was to make sure “no Holocaust survivor who has endured the darkest days of human history will ever be hungry again or suffer or be forgotten or neglected,” and that Gibson had played a big role in helping achieve that goal.
In October 2016, Gibson remembered his drunken 2006 anti-Semitic comments that “Jews are responsible for all wars” as “unfortunate,” during an interview with Variety’s “Playback” podcast.
“I don’t understand why after 10 years it’s any kind of issue,” he said. “Surely, if I was really what they say — I was some kind of hater — there’d be evidence of actions somewhere.”
“I’ve never discriminated against anyone or done anything that sort of supports that reputation,” he continued. “And for one episode in the back of a police car, on eight double tequilas, to sort of dictate all the work, life’s work, and beliefs and everything else that I have and maintain for my life is really unfair.”
But despite being attacked as a bigot, Gibson has never bragged about the good work he had been doing to help Jewish people in Europe.
Instead, he helped quietly, showing that his intentions were purely about helping Holocaust survivors and not a publicity stunt to reshape his image.
Buzby explained that the movie director had “educated himself” on the Holocaust, adding, “He’s done philanthropic work now, and I think that actions speak very loudly … and his actions have helped a lot of people.”
Mel Gibson has helped people in a total of eight countries.
“Mel feels great compassion for what this organization does,” Buzby said. “And he doesn’t publicly promote most of his philanthropy but quietly helps out.”
We, the people make mistakes. It’s not our mistakes that make us who we are, it’s how we handle those mistakes and what we do afterward.
Mel Gibson has made some awful mistakes, but those mistakes have made him to think about life from a different perspective and to help the people he was cursing on. Now, he has helped millions of people who have suffered from anti-Semitism.
