Frances Marcus, a 74-year-old Holocaust survivor, reviews Israel’s version of The Producers:
The biggest fun on earth. You couldn’t have put this on twenty or even ten years ago. And now to see this Hitler dancing and not feel offended. Attitudes to Germany have changed totally.
Both sides have grown up. And with this whole business of the [Prophet Muhammad] cartoons—isn’t this just the biggest, super-mega cartoon, this show?
The show would probably be banned in Indonesia under forthcoming legislation:
The same groups staging violent demonstrations against the West over cartoons of the prophet Muhammad are targeting pornography in their battle to transform Indonesia into a strict Islamic nation. And they are winning: parliament is set to introduce a sweeping anti-pornography law.
Expected to be passed by June, the law imposes a rigid social template; couples who kiss in public will face up to five years’ jail, as would anyone flaunting a “sensual body part” – including their navel – and tight clothing will be outlawed.
Hit the link to see an image (totally work-safe) that may send an Indonesian artist to prison. I’d say Indonesian politicians deserve to be satirised over this, but I’m still working out relative power levels and so on.
