      Cairo, Egypt-(AP) -- Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the
      Christ" is a big hit among Arab Muslims and Christians
      in the Middle East.

      The film has drawn large and enthusiastic crowds in
      Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. And Arabs in other Mideast
      countries are eagerly awaiting its release.

      It seems that many viewers not only see a strong
      anti-Jewish message -- they think it's part of the
      film's appeal.

      A Jordanian Muslim woman says she was moved to tears
      when she saw the movie at an Amman theater. She says
      the movie "unmasked the Jews' lies."

      Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat saw the movie over
      the weekend in the West Bank. He compared the pain
      Jesus endured during the crucifixion to the suffering
      he says Israel has inflicted on Palestinians.
