Harvey Keitel to play Meyer Lansky in gangster biopic Veteran US actor Harvey Keitel is headlining a new biopic about Jewish mobster Meyer Lansky, who was a close friend and contemporary of notorious gangster Bugsy Siegel, the distributors said Saturday. Entitled "Lansky", the film focuses on the latter part of his life when the now retired-boss of Murder Inc. was in his 70s and living anonymously in Florida's Miami Beach, Voltage Pictures said. When Lansky takes on a journalist to tell his story, played by "Avatar" actor Sam Worthington, the FBI use him as bait to entrap the underworld kingpin whom they suspect of stashing away millions. The film is in pre-production with shooting due to start in August.

Germany's main Jewish leader said last year that he would advise people visiting big cities against wearing Jewish skullcaps.

Government statistics released earlier this month showed that the number of anti-Semitic and anti-foreigner incidents rose in Germany last year, despite an overall drop in politically motivated crimes.

Israel president Reuven Rivlin has expressed shock at Klein’s comment.

"The statement of the German government's anti-Semitism commissioner that it would be preferable for Jews not wear a kippa in Germany out of fear for their safety, shocked me deeply," Rivlin said in a statement.

He added that "we will never submit, will never lower our gaze and will never react to anti-Semitism with defeatism — and expect and demand our allies act in the same way."

Australian Muslim doctor Jamal Rifi takes legal fight to Lebanon after 'being labelled a Zionist'.
Sydney GP Dr Jamal Rifi says he is the victim of a smear campaign orchestrated by the Shia militant group Hezbollah and its supporters. "Now they've twisted all these facts and they labelled me a Zionist, working with the enemy, and a collaborator, shame on them," he said. Dr Rifi is a prominent member of Australia's Sunni community. He can no longer visit Lebanon out of fear he will be arrested for visiting Israel, which is illegal for Lebanese citizens. "I'm going to take them to court and I'm going to prove that what I've done is something noble, it's something good," he said.
