Israel prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu shadow-paints a Hitler mustache on German chancellor Angela Merkel.

An astounding photograph.

Your reaction.

Bibi has Merkle on his side in the latest Jew haters campaign to stop trade with the Jewish State.

Who cares about shadows. Is that supposed to be a religious sign to spiritist pagans like a flight of birds flocked in a certain way to Roman augers?

I picked the first - it's hilarious - but three applies as well:

It means nothing. Merkel's a good gal.

And the Germans ARE trying. I admire the effort they're putting into managing the past, as honestly as possible, going forward. I wish we had more of what they do, in that regard.

Except for the Nazis and white supremacists, I enjoyed my time with them immensely,...

What's he pointing at?

The shadow of Hitler hangs over German-Israeli relations. That photograph illustrates it, and Drudge being Drudge could not resist. That said, did anyone else find Merkel's resemblance to Hitler striking in that photo, quite beyond the shadow mustache?

The Cracker Emcee said...

Whatever you think of the content it was a great catch by the photographer.

Oso Negro said...

And it is ALREADY GONE from Drudge! I suppose they got some swift shit for it.

"And it is ALREADY GONE from Drudge! I suppose they got some swift shit for it."

Maybe from the photographer who expects to get paid.

LOL at Cracker Emcee.

Shakespeare wrote a play about it.

It looks like a coincidence to me.

On my Drudge feed it is still there - just moved down the page to the right column.

Just one of those things. Funny, but unfortunately, there's no way for history not to intrude, particularly given that the history is why it's funny.

FFS!

I wanted to vote for 1 and 3.

Like most normal people, when reading a blog posting such as this, my mind immediately drifts effortlessly into the "I wonder how this affects Crack on a personal level" mode.

It's nice to know that the Germans ARE trying.

Of course, the Greeks could not disagree more.

But then again, they are white, and Crack is black.

So there ya go.

I'm tempted to post a link to David Alan Grier on "In Living Color" where he plays the old blues musician who puts everything to song after saying: "..wrote a song about it....."

Crack, there's an idea.

You should write and record (very quickly) blues songs about things that no one would expect to hear: For instance, this blog posting.

Then put those songs online.

Might be a revenue stream in there somewhere.

Drago,

Like I said it was all smooth sailing - I said they were "trying" - and, this may come as a shock to you, but events do change,...

Drago said...

Crack, "events do change"?

Original Mike said...

Merkel's hair is better (than Hitler's).

The Crack Emcee said...

Drago,

"Might be a revenue stream in there somewhere."

Wow - Drago posts something constructive - that's new.

I've already been thinking along those lines, kind of, after reading about a guy who makes a lot of money writing (awful) songs based on Google search words.

Unfortunately, right now, I have to stay alive,...

Yeah - tides shift, the sweep of history, etc. The Greek/German drama is no more finished than America's race issues. History keeps on moseying' along.

That's why it's important to know, for real, where it's coming from,...

Drago said...

Thats all well and good but "events do change" does not equate to history keeps marching along.

I wanted to have clarity around what you were really getting at.

Hilarious photo. Looks like Charlie Chaplin imitating Hitler.

"Like to hear it?"

"here how it go!"

Classic.

Saw DAG in person at the DC improve. He was so funny I almost wet myself. Was in tears the entire time.

Obama gets a halo. Netanyahu gets depicted smearing an ally as a Nazi.

Discuss.

Bill R said...

I don't think you could get a shadow that sharp from that distance. I'm certain the picture is photo-shopped.

Netanyahu has a sharp eye for the enemies of Israel and the Jewish people, as well he should. He doesn't count Merkel in that particular throng, nor should he.

Oh c'mon now. That's just as anti-Semitic as can be.

i guess you see what you want to see. to me it's just a mustache not a hitler mustache

Oh that Bibi. Remember when he gave that speech about Iran at the UN with the cartoonish bomb poster.

Or as I like to call that moment, how I learned to stop worrying and love the Iranian bomb.
