Sacha Baron Cohen’s claim to fame is abusing deceiving and mocking individuals and ethnicities for laughs; videotaping interviews where the subject is made to look foolish. He refuses to say how these oftentimes high-profile interviews are arranged. In 2009, Sky News documented that Baron Cohen deceived a Palestinian Christian into an interview and deceived his viewers to believe that the subject was a hostile Muslim terrorist. The man filed a defamation lawsuit. The ‘Anti-Defamation’ League of B’nai B’rith was nowhere to be found, however. There’s a reason for that.*
Sacha Baron Cohen’s father, Gerald Baron Cohen was President of the B’nai B’rith first lodge of England. He also served as a director of the university subversion branch of B’nai B’rith, Hillel (note that one of his companies is listed as “Ali G Limited.” “Ali G” is one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s characters). This rather important piece of information is left out of Sacha Baron Cohen’s biographies. Knowing it helps us to better understand his ‘humor.’

In light of this information I think it’s safe to say that the public ‘dialogue’ that B’nai B’rith’s Abe Foxman recently had with Sacha Baron Cohen regarding his “Borat” character was a contrived ‘teachable moment.’ Others have sensed the protection racket angle to his shtick.
Sacha Baron Cohen has a new movie, “The Dictator” in which he has a few laughs at the expense of the victims of the Zionist ‘Arab Spring’ hostilities.
B’nai B’rith is a ‘Jews’-only masonic organization which, among other things, was founded to impede assimilation of Judaic individuals by disrupting the culture and religion of their host nations while simultaneously building up Judaic culture and religion.
