Mel Gibson's father HUTTON has launched a blistering attack on the Jewish religion - just days before his son's controversial film THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST is released in America.

Catholic extremist Hutton, 85, claims the Holocaust never happened and accuses Jews of conspiring to take over the world.

According to British tabloid THE DAILY EXPRESS, Hutton ranted to an American radio station, "They are after one world religion and one world government."

MAD MAX star Mel has faced uproar from the Jewish community amidst claims his film - about the last few hours of Jesus Christ's life - is anti-Semitic.

Christian Mel has always denied the film is racist towards Jewish people and says he hold great respect towards the religion.
