Mel Gibson's The Passion Of The Christ movie is to be released in Israel, despite national outrage there.

Commercial distributors in Israel have refused to air the film but an arthouse theatre in Tel Aviv will be showing it, despite protests the epic is anti-Semitic.

ALON (corr) GARBOZ, the director of Tel Aviv's CINEMATHEQUE theatre - which will be showing the movie, says, "We see this as a chance to hold an educational discussion on the subject."
