Sean Stone, son of controversial film director Oliver Stone, delivered a barrage of anti-Israel rhetoric on the Russia Today TV channel August 1st. He referred to Israel as a “crusader state” and repeatedly called Israelis “European settlers.” He said these “European settlers” don’t feel comfortable in what is “historically Palestine,” and they have no ties to Israel. He also referred to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as an “American guy.” Stone, who is a convert to Islam, also claimed that the terror attacks on New York of September 11th 2001 were an inside job and were not carried out by Islamic terrorists led by Osama bin Laden. Sean’s positions are not entirely surprising, as Oliver Stone himself has a history of making anti-Semitic remarks.

Sean Stone said he doesn’t consider Hezbollah to be a terrorist organization because it operates within Lebanon’s borders, and is only defending Lebanese sovereignty from Israeli invasion. He went on to defend Iran, and claimed that Tehran does not sponsor terrorism. Stone also asserted that the media has an anti-Islamic narrative. He claimed that the United States has killed “hundreds of thousands of people” throughout the Middle East and North Africa through drone strikes and other operations connected to the War on Terror.

Russia Today TV which broadcast Stone’s remarks is funded by the Russian government, and has been criticized for producing a relentless stream of anti-American and anti-Israel bulletins.

    Over half of Israeli Jews are Mizrachim – Jews who descended from Jewish communities in Arab countries.


    Son of Wall Street and former Yalie Oliver
    Stone, once a soldier and a genuinely talented
    film-maker —-has BALKED the issue of our time

    the Globalist —-RED CHINA set up
    and handover of the–entire– American economy
    to Globalist RED CHINA.

    And further, ISLAM is being set up for the next
    phase of Globalist world collectivization.

    ISLAM is the perfect instrument for managing
    large, urbanized populations.

    Stone’s son seems to be as franchise slum clueless
    as his father.

    Oliver Stone’s son is a Muslim. Yada, yada, yada. Olive Stone’s religion is leftism. Yada, yada, yada.
    The fact that more than 1,000,000 Israelis are Jews who were evicted from the Middle East (Egypt, Yeman, Lebanon, Syria, Liberia, Iraq and Iran)and the fact that the Arabs, in the Middle East, murdered Christians or forced their conversion by the millions is irrelevant to those on the left and Muslims. So what is the news?

  • Yael

    Russia is as hypocritical as anone else. They will allow stone, a convert to islm to badh israel and the US. But, big but, if stone would have argued in favor of his fellow mulims in chechniya, russia TV would have shut him up in a flash!

    ‘Give me a child, until he is 5 or 6, and I will own him for the rest of his life.’ This man is well and truly brain washed, up is down and black is white in his world. I found it fitting that this man should self identify as a muslim, the final act of a man/boy whose life and mind have been completely distorted by his fathers hate for America and by default, his acceptance of all things anti-American. During the remainder of his life, as he lives in a world of hate and violence, so shall he be judged.
