As I implied in my previous post, most mockers are enemies of all religions.

Again, not true - - Foxman, Weinstein and Eisner mock Christianity, but not Judaism. Same with Hollywood in general. You don't see Judaism reviled in the movies the way Christianity is regularly reviled and ridiculed.

And as I suspected, you weren't able to cite any name of a prominent christian business, political or social person, to back up your claim that there are gentiles who mock Judaism the way Foxman, Weinstein and Eisner (and Hollywood) mock Christianity.

Perhaps you forgot about Keeping the Faith or about 2/3 of Mel Brooks movies that treat Jewish customs and laws as a running joke?
Contempt for Judaism is common in Hollywood. However, the racial hatred is not there, limiting what is done.

If these folks could make a few bucks by ridiculing and reviling Judaism as they do Christianity WITHOUT FEAR OF RETRIBUTION, I think they would do it in a heartbeat.

What about the ferociously films Kadosh and A Price Above Rubies portraying Hasidic Jews as loathesome criminals? Made by Israelis no less.
