Inclusive Romanian Carol Suggests A Place For Jews In Holiday Celebration

"Advocacy groups are incensed after a Romanian government-owned channel broadcast a Christmas song glorifying the Holocaust and calling for Jews to be burned. The channel is blaming a local group for the performance…. In the broadcast, a choir was shown singing a Christmas song that indirectly glorifies the Holocaust. The song, which rhymes and uses the word 'jidovi,' a pejorative word for a Jew, includes the lyrics, 'only in the chimney as smoke, this is what the "jidov" is good for.'"

Has this knocked "Ceausescu Roasting on an Open Fire" off the charts in Bucharest?

So, maybe the depiction of that Romanian village in "Borat" (you know, the village that sued Cohen and company for misrepresenting them) wasn't so inaccurate after all.
