That was pretty much my take on it.

I agree, except that making light of Hitler to an audience that hates Israel seems a little... circle-jerky?

Does seem a bit of an overkill thing, yeah.

I'm just happy somebody in the region is openly displaying a sense of humor about something no matter how inappropriate it may be.

I fully expect someone to make a Downfall Hitler reacts video for this.

The writer of that article is apparently oblivious to how Hitler is perceived in the arab world. He's not exactly a despised person, it's actually the opposite.

Sheesh.  What is it with people?  That whole Hitler thing was like, 70 years ago, man.  It's nothing to dwell on.  Hey, ADL, you gotta give that hate up at some point, 'cause constantly bringing that kind of stuff up is, like, no way to live, man.  Just reinforcing the negatives and harshing everyone.
Get your head's right, people.
If we can use Hitler to bring the joy of television to people, why should ruin it with irrational and blind hatred?

Well, just so you know.......that is how the movie title from Quentin Tarantino was spelled. It was done on purpose, but never explained by the eccentric director in interviews with him. So, technically.....it is right and does not need to be fixed.

Nope. Without Google I don't even know what West Ham is, other than obviously a soccer team. I'm just an arrogant, bloviating, exaggerating, over-actor.

What I find odd is that people seem to get more offended by nazi-related jokes today than they did 30 years ago. You know, people who actually lived through those days. There was basically no outcry when Fawlty Towers did The Germans (which wasn't trivialising or supporting the Nazis, but just showing how bonkers Cleese was, but even doing that would now be classed as "causing offence").

This.

Although most people in North America and Europe despise Hitler, that same hatred isn't found in the same severity, if at all, in other regions.

Which is absolutely hilarious, because if Hitler's run were allowed to continue, he would have eventually targeted Muslims with the same ferocity with which he targeted Jews.

/master race, how does it work?

I'm pretty sure he explained it before production started: the group were of marginal intelligence and barely literate, so the title reflected what they would have called themselves.
