Borat, the movie character created by British Jewish comedian Sacha Baron Cohen - has jokingly agreed with the anti-Semitic comments made by film star Mel Gibson after being arrested for drunk-driving in Malibu, the British Web site, Life Style Extra, reported on Tuesday. He told journalists in Santa Monica on Monday: "I would like to meet the fearless anti-Jew warrior, Melvin Gibson. We agree with his comments that the Jews started all wars. We also have proof that they were responsible for killing off all the dinosaurs. And Hurricane Katrina - they did it." Borat is in Hollywood this week promoting his controversial new movie, "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Mae Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan" in which he plays an anti-Semitic, anti-gay TV reporter.
