Has Mel Gibson Stopped Maccabeating Up On Jews?

 Either that, or he hates Syrian-Greeks more than he hates us:

mel gibson jewFile this under ironic and interesting …  Mel Gibson is producing a movie that triumphs the Jewish struggle against tyranny … a movie about the greatest Jewish hero of all time.

Mel’s publicist Alan Nierob tells TMZ …  Mel is teaming up with screenwriter Joe Eszterhas (right) — who wrote the Jewish-themed movies “Betrayed” and “Music Box” — to produce a movie about Judah Maccabee, the Jewish warrior who defeated the Greek-Syrian armies in the second century B.C.

Mel — who famously directed the arguably anti-Jewish “Passion of the Christ” in 2004 — has signed on with Warner Bros., which won out over several other studios that wanted the project.

Nierob says Gibson has been working on the Maccabee project for a decade, but now it’s about to become real.
