Israeli memes mock Netanyahu's Hitler revisionism

Netanyahu claimed yesterday that the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem was responsible for convincing Hitler to exterminate the Jews. Israelis and Palestinians are not letting him get off that easy.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to the World Zionist Congress in Jerusalem Tuesday afternoon, where he claimed that until he was convinced by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Hitler never actually planned on exterminating European Jewry.

But Netanyahu didn’t get off so easy. Despite trying his best to backpedal on Wednesday, the prime minister’s words caused an uproar, prompting both the Israeli opposition as well as Holocaust historians to condemn his remarks.

1. The world did not need another "Hitler Finds Out..." video.

 

But as those things go, that was still pretty funny.

Now I want crepes.
