    Just thank your lucky stars that Shakespeare didn't call the character Mohammed rather than Shylock.

    Shakespeare was a genius who understood the human condition and the stories we tell to justify our condition like no other before him.

    Almost every film or story can be condensed into one of his plays, or at least part of it.

    It is a testimony to his talent that he can still be controversial today. Despite the fact that those making these accusations are morons, of course.

    Sadly I have to agree with that. I am a philistine.
