WAR/POP CULTURE: Springtime for Arafat

For those who have complained - rightly - of Hollywood's post-September 11 squeamishness about making movies about terrorism where the bad guys are (duh!) Muslim and/or Arab fanatics, there is hope: Steven Spielberg, who's likely to be pretty damn unsympathetic to lunatic Jew-hating Palestinian terrorists, is making a movie about the terror attacks at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

My guess would be that the movie will focus on the complex relationship between the Israelis and the West Germans, rather than that between the Israelis and Palestinians. Of course, either way, it sounds like a worthy project.
