It may be risky to publicly admit that I’m thinking of someone this Valentine’s Day in addition to my lovely wife. But I am, and his name is Yair Netanyahu.

Tempest In A Teapot

JC Penny has raised a feuhrer with its teapot that looks more like a despot. Our friends at JTA have compiled this video of other things that look like Hitler.

Glenn Beck Slammed For Bloomberg Nazi Image

Conservative commentator Glenn Beck caused a stir at the National Rifle Association's convention by presenting an image of Mayor Michael Bloomberg giving a Nazi-like salute.

In his address to the gun lobby, Beck complained about Bloomberg's efforts to curb illegal guns and impose other controversial health measures in New York City, then presented the image as a joke, suggesting that the mayor's new motto for the Big Apple is "you will love New York."

Hitler Slips Into A Google App Store

Apple has been criticized by mobile app makers for the difficult process involved in getting their apps into the AppStore. The reason for all the red tape in this process, however, is so Apple can approve each app for content ensuring there is no hate speech or racist material in the app. In France, Apple has even removed an app that was in violation of that country's strong policy on anti-Semitism.

Yad Vashem Vandalized With Anti-Semitic Graffiti

06/11/2012

 

Vandals spray painted anti-Israel and anti-Semitic graffiti at the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum.

The slogans written in Hebrew, including "Hitler, thank you for the Holocaust," "If Hitler did not exist, the Zionists would have invented him," and "The war of the Zionist regime is not the war of the Jewish people," were mostly found at the entrance to the museum and concentrated near the Warsaw Ghetto Square and the memorial to the deportees.

“Avengers” Stays True To Anti-Totalitarian Theme Of Comics' Origins

Books have been written about the role of many immigrant-offspring Jews in creating the comic book universe and such colorful, tights-clad denizens as Superman, Spiderman and Captain America. So there’s no point in predictable shepping nachas about how The Tribe has helped capture the imagination of three generations with inspiring tales of preserving truth, justice and the American Way.

Marvel's latest blockbuster, "The Avengers," pits a group of heroes against a would-be dictator from another world.

"Mein Kampf" Goes Back In Print--in Germany. Good for the Jews?

For years, German scholars and the country’s most prominent Jewish organizations have argued that Germany should allow “Mein Kampf” to be published in Germany before the copyright expires, in 2015.  It is not illegal to publish the book in Germany, but the state of Bavaria, which holds the copyright, had adamantly refused for decades, saying that the longer the book was out of print, the better.

Plans To Publish Mein Kampf In German Hit Legal Snag

01/18/2012

Plans by a British publisher to make segments of Adolf Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” available in the German language may run into legal trouble.

Publisher Peter McGee said he plans to publish three annotated excerpts of the text, which remains under copyright protection in Germany until 2015, 70 years after Hitler’s death, according to the Associated Press. The Bavarian Finance Ministry, which holds the copyright, told AP on Tuesday that plans to print excerpts in Germany before then may violate the law.

The Nazis and Spielberg: The Coming Storm

Nothing quite gets the public going like a Spielberg movie.  Even if you hate his movies (not that I do), it's hard to avoid the excitement they engender. Especially come Christmas.  This year, Spielberg's big holiday release, you may have heard, is "The Adventures of Tintin," an animated 3D film about the legendary children's book.  And this year, I'm predicting a minor controversy about it.
