The Gall Of Stone

A few days ago, it was announced that Oliver Stone’s son did a Lauren Booth and ate up a storm converted to Islam. In Iran.

US filmmaker Sean Stone, son of Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone, converted to Islam on Tuesday in Iran, where he is making a documentary, he told AFP.

“The conversion to Islam is not abandoning Christianity or Judaism, which I was born with. It means I have accepted Mohammad and other prophets,” he said in a brief telephone call from the central Iranian city of Isfahan, where he underwent the ceremony.

Sean Stone’s famous father is Jewish, while his mother is Christian.

The 27-year-old filmmaker did not say why he converted.

According to Iran’s Fars news agency, Sean Stone had become a Shiite and had chosen to be known by the Muslim first name Ali.

Sean/Ali Stone has acted in minor roles in several of his father’s films, and has directed a handful of documentaries.

He’s really going to have to do something about that hair.

Meanwhile, here he is discussing his visit to Iran and conversion. He defends Ahmadinejad and has no problem with Iran having a nuclear weapon.


Daddy must be proud.

    Oliver Stone’s father was Jewish. His mother was Catholic. He was raised in the Episcopalian faith.

      Same with Barry Goldwater.

      • Norman B.

        Goldwater’s background reminds me of Lenny Bruce’s crack that the reason Goldwater did so poorly in the 1964 election was the fear in the back of voters’ minds that once inaugurated he would rip off his face and reveal a hook-nosed Jew underneath snarling, “The first thing we do, we’ll burn down the churches!”

          Man, that would have made a great story line for an episode of “Twilight Zone.”

    O’Reilly has the largest audience in cable news by far. His ability to hold an audience is undeniable, but he really is the most pompous windbag on the air. Rush Limbaugh refers to him as the “Ted Baxter of cable news” which is an apt and entertaining description. And who cares what little Sean Stone thinks, anyway?

    What’s up with these Jews?! I mean does that kind of shit always has to come from a jew or a half jew or any mutation of a so called jew… WTF???

    • ziontruth

      He’s not a Jew and neither is his father (see Morris’s post above). Jewishness is through the mother, unless one converts according to the requirements of Jewish Law.

        Shlomi is raised Jewish by a Jewish father and gentile mother. He is very observant.

        Chaim is raised nothing by a gentile father and Jewish mother. He is atheist.

        Who is the Jew?

  • Morris the Katz

    Oliver Stone once gave an interview in which he said that Hitler killed more Russians than Jews, but the Holocaust is depicted as being anti-Jewish because Jews control the media.

    Stone, in his Wall Street sequel, named one of the evil characters JULIE Steinhardt, and had him portrayed by Eli Wallach.

    This seems to be a shot at former hedge fund manager and Birthright Israel principal Michael Steinhardt, whose wife’s name is JUDY.

      Thats technically true and he was anti-Slavic, but Slavs havent been hated for 19 centuries…

      • juvanya

        And it wasnt as systematic. It was war.

  • tom

    sorry, but this guy (Ali Stone) is just so shallow. I mean, how clear does Ahmadinajad has to say he wants to wipe out Israel? And: Are you kidding me? Sending Jimmy Carter, the Anti-semite, to Israel? Again? For what? Think about how “jewish” is father is (apart from his mother being jewish), marrying a goye? Com’on this guy’s now (according to him) Christian, Jewish and Muslim? What would you call him? Christjewuslim? (wouldn’t even now how to pronounce that…)

  • Shy Guy

    I would have titled this “Thick as Stone”.

    • Jim from Iowa

      Yea, sending the failed former president Jimmy Carter over to Iran to reason with them is beyond naive. That’s a really, really stupid idea worthy of some kind of Stupid People’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

  • Empress Trudy

    Maybe he can marry Cindy Sheehan after she converts and he can beat her with a stick no thicker than his thumb.

  • Tom the Redhunter

    Good grief. Oliver Stone is a conspiratorial nut so I’m not surprised his son is confused. I can only imagine how screwed up I’d be if I came from this family.

  • dcdoc

    OK, so to add a touch of the salacious, I think Oliver once confided to the world that around 15 years of age or so, his step-mother (who, IIRC, was French) pleasured him sexually to help him achieve manhood, an experience which had damaging effects on his psyche.

  • Lloyd S

    He better not change his mind. Then they’d have to hill him for apostasy.
