Hah-hah-hah! Hee-hee-hee. LOL!

Cultural, religious and ethnic sensitivity...and some things that can make people look like idiots!

Yonatan,

It is sad that so many people don't seem to understand that there is nothing funny about Hitler. I grew up reading text books in school that Jews are not human. In Gaza there are summer camps that teach kids terror. And did you know that in the 1940 the Grand Mufti of Palestine Haj Amin al Husseini asked Hitler for the design of the gas chamber so he could use them to kill the Jews of Palestine.

I still have many problems with the government of Israel and the policies. But I am an Arab who despises Adolf Hitler and believes in peace!

Peace/Shalom/Salaam

Dearest commentors and respondents,

Sorry about the delay in thanking you. We enjoyed a nice family outing to the lowest place on planet Earth yesterday, the Dead Sea, and were far out of contact of any internet...a blessing. My report on the Dead Sea. No signs of life...still quite dead.

To all of the commentors: Duncan, Shosh, Braden, Shep, Ofira, Magpie, Ben, Ollie, BG and Portfolio....THANK YOU for your replies, insight and support.

I don't like to do the group reply thing but I must leave in about fifteen minutes.

Thank you for reading and for taking the time to pen your thoughts!

Very hard hitting Yonatan. Now the bad news. Had you submitted this to The Post in a slightly different format it would have been a shoe-in for publication. Very originial.

Yoni,

I didn't really know what Blackface is until I read it on your blog. I did a bit of reading in order to understand. I found this interesting tidbit on cnn.com titled 'Blackface Is Never Okay'. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. It is important to understand differing cultures all in order to be more sensitive.

Exceptional job Yonatan! I just don't understand. There are so many things to choose from that are really funny. Why risk offending people with things that people will or might find insulting and offensive. And why use these types of things for business when the repercussion can mean alienating readers and customers.

Ben,

I agree. I keep a lot of opinions to myself like politics with customers. Why risk alienating people? Hitler is another question. Maybe their are some people who admire him but most will be offended by trying to find humor in him.

Yoni,

You are a few points away from number one for the day on IL, very rare for a business blog. I'm assuming the message is resonating with a lot of readers.

The Hitler video is stupid and unprofessional. The New York Times article is way past sane and newsworthy. I wouldn't be surprised if they got a lot of bad reaction to it. I don't see any comments section on the article. Nice job!

These things are not funny even though some people tend to continue to think they are. Great blog posting!
