A public broadcaster in the Netherlands aired and then took offline an animation series featuring jokes about the Holocaust and suggestions that Jews persecute Palestinians.
The jokes appeared in a 10-minute animation clip parodying "South Park," the popular American series. "Mocro Park" was created for a publicly funded broadcaster popular with Dutch Arabs, and was meant to celebrate and satirize the country's Arab youth culture.
In the joke about the Holocaust, a Jewish character named Levy suggests to his friends, including a Moroccan character and a Turkish one, that smoking tobacco from a hookah may be unhealthy. The Moroccan character then has flatulence. "Sorry, Levy, did I just gas you?" the Moroccan character asks.
