Unsigned comment[edit]

Just took out:

"That the actor with a Jewish heritage should portray, or has been chosen to portray, one of the more famous creations of an anti-semitic author, Agatha Christie, is regarded as piquant by some."

A fairly contentious comment with no citation whatsoever. Tacked on awkwardly at the very end of the article. Removed while I wasn't signed in. Jentizzle (talk) 15:13, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Suchet's Jewish heritage: further implications[edit]

Let me first say that I have been an ardent fan of the BBC series "Hercule Poiret." In my opinion, and in the popular consensus, Suchet has arguably portrayed the definitive Poiret...a character, yes, created by that very talented writer of mysteries, and the very anti-Semitic, Agatha Christie. What I find most egregious, however, is Suchet's private life, his repudiation of his Jewish heritage, the veracity of which he has taken pains to investigate. Self-loathing Jews are not a novelty in a world where both subtle and virulent ant-Semitism has been a historical and contemporary fact. I personally find Suchet's conversion to Christianity, his allegiance to the Protestant Church of England, (the Episcopal, "aristocratic" branch of English Protestantism), a disappointing choice which garners him no respect from those who take pride in their lineage and heritage, no matter what that may be.
