Let's ignore Mel Gibson

Instead of calling for hate crime charges to be filed.

And let's ignore Abe Foxman, too.
Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League, called Gibson's apology 'unremorseful and insufficient.'

'It's not a proper apology because it does not go to the essence of his bigotry and his anti-Semitism,' he said in a statement on the organization's Web site. 'We would hope that Hollywood now would realize the bigot in their midst and that they will distance themselves from this anti-Semite.'

At a time when Israel is being portrayed in the media as a rogue nation whose behavior is outside the bounds of human decency, demanding "justice" for the drunken remarks of a Hollywood actor seems more than a little misplaced.
