At first blush, the connection between two films about the loss of faith 
in Zionism and one about whether jokes can ever be made about the 
Holocaust might seem tenuous at best. However, without the Holocaust 
there would be no Israel. Furthermore, the director of that film, who is 
Jewish like the other two, might have something else in common. Once you 
begin joking about concentration camps, doesn’t that remove the sanctity 
that the state of Israel rests on? When British Labourite Naz Shah 
posted an image on FB of Israel superimposed on the USA, it was lifted 
from Norman Finkelstein’s website. Commenting on the controversy whether 
this image suggested that Jews be “transported” from Israel as they were 
to concentration camps, Finkelstein laughed at the comparison.
