The Gibson movie has now been viewed by millions of Americans. Yet last night on cable, I still saw the usual suspects (Shmuley Boteach, etc.) claiming that the film is dangerous.

It seems to me that those who have been crying "wolf" on anti-Semitism had now better put up or shut up. At this point, any claim that "The Passion" is "dangerous" or "anti-Semitic" or could lead to "unintended consequences" should be met with a demand for proof.

Where are the acts of violence? Where are the mobs of people looking to spill Jewish (or any other) blood? Is it time yet to admit you were simply wrong? If not now, when?
