Robert De Niro is Jewish?



The young Vito Corleone, really? Doubtful, but somehow the speculation of “conspiracy theorists” that Robert De Niro is a crypto-Jew made their way into The Independent.

The article was about the delay in Mel Gibson’s Hollywood comeback, caused by De Niro walking off the set of Gibson’s new film, “Edge of Darkness.” The paper reported:

It was by no means certain if De Niro’s “creative differences” were with Gibson, another co-star, or with a member of the production team. But conspiracy theorists have been quick to point the finger at Gibson, thought by many to still hold anti-Semitic beliefs. Some claimed that De Niro has Jewish ancestors.

With reporting like that, how can I be so skeptical?
