Israel, STAHP!!1

In response to what it calls rising anti-Semitism abroad, Israel is pushing to ban the word „Nazi” from its lexicon. But it’s not stopping there: Uttering any other slur related to the Third Reich would also be a crime, as would using any Holocaust symbol, from swastikas to the yellow star, for any reason other than learning. The penalty? Up to six months in jail and a $29,000 fine.

Ha ha ha ha! 😐
