The Hollywood producer behind Fight Club forgot the first rule of fight club and admitted on Israeli prime time news that he is a former Israeli spy.

Although Arnon Milchan was rumored to be a spy for years — even Robert De Niro raised suspicions — it wasn’t until Monday that the “Pretty Woman” producer admitted to buying arms and assisting his country’s nuclear program to “Uvda,” a popular show in Israel.

“I did it for my country and I’m proud of it,” said Milchan, who also ran a fertilizer company in Israel before making his mark in Hollywood.

He also said other Hollywood bigwigs were involved.

No where in this story is there any context that he was spying on AMERICA for Israel. He is Israeli and worked for the Israeli governement before he became a producer...sooooo what? George Bush Sr. was a spy before he became president. Tens of thousands of people work for the CIA too but that doesn't make them all James Bond clones. Most of them are bureaucrats who do nothing but sign their names and read mind-numbing reports all day.

This guy is full of sh**.  He is not a spy. He is just trying to get publicity for himself.

How sad...that producer will never, ever produce in Hollywood ever again.  The liberals won't let him anywhere near the place.

You cannot qualify as a "spy" when the host govt knows exactly what you are doing.

So much for thinking Hollywood Jewish conspiracies were all bogus.  Nice going Arnon Milchan and friends for helping battle the stereotype.  As if Richard Perle's groupies in DC weren't bad enough.

@RobertBain Would you prefer that they not have reported on a well-known Producer admitting to being a spy? Is it somehow anti-semitic because they mentioned Israel? How, exactly, would YOU have them handle the story?

@mrbomb13 I think you are missing the "Jews Run Hollywood" between the lines context.
