Nazi claim threatens Firth's Oscar night

There are fears that its success at next month's Oscars could be hampered by an email apparently being circulated to members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences by extremist Jewish members to those who vote on the awards, accusing the film of ''glossing over'' history.
Every piece of history is checked by these extremists, it seems that the new term is glossing over history, not that the film is wrong, it is just that it does not suit these extremists views of how it should be depicted.
It alleges that George VI, the father of the Queen, actively ''stymied'' efforts by Jews fleeing Nazi Germany to settle in British-controlled Palestine.
These people are no different or less dangerous than fundamentalists of all creeds, god forbid that they should ever have an open mind on any subject.
The Jews are not the only people ever persecuted, nor unfortunately will they be the last I'm afraid.
Does this give them the right to be judge and jury on every artistic endeavour, if this film is inaccurate why not say so.
If it is only an opinion that is coloured by fundamentalism it is not a valid reason to denigrate an artistic endeavour.
