Comedy Central's Signs of Regret

Signs of regret at Comedy Central?

Their I.S.R.A.E.L. Attack! game is still online, but CC no longer features it so prominently.

Also, their introductory video has removed the contentious phrase, "You lied to me, Jew producer."

The original, unedited version, can be seen here (hat tip: Jewlicious)

If Comedy's Central's acting on the defensive, it's only because readers are letting the station know that I.S.R.A.E.L. Attacks! is simply indefensible.

As Dvir Abramovich wrote at the Sydney Morning Herald:

The unmistakable message is that when there’s any slaughtering of children to be done, it’s I.S.R.A.E.L that does the job. According to the creative team at Comedy Central, that’s the natural association we should all make when we think of the Jewish state and its people.

That not one executive found anything objectionable, defamatory, tasteless and hateful about the game speaks volumes about how entrenched and mainstream the vilifying of Israel and Jews has become. It seems that the notion of self-censorship did not apply when the demonising of Jews was on the agenda.

Our new Facebook group now has nearly 1,800 members. See HonestReporting's original critique, plus my take on additional points raised by comments and the roar of the crowd.
