Some Israeli TV ads are quite clever, although this one doesn’t necessarily look like it will be that funny. Still, I love how CNN (the Crescent News Network) has its panties in a bunch over an Israeli supermarket ad mocking the Dubai assassination of HAMAS operative Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh a/k/a “Abu Abed.” Give all credit where it is due to the creativity of Machsanei Kimat Chinam, the Israeli supermarket that thought this up and is getting tons of free publicity from the faux-outrage over this ad.
CNN International, which blocks its videos in the U.S. on YouTube, called it “in poor taste.” As if CNN has a clue what “taste” is. (Have they bothered to listen to any reports by Christiane Amanpour? Now, that’s poor taste.)
I love the false, overwrought outrage these lefties display over trivial nothings while they look the other way at Islamic terrorism–mass murders in cold blood–all around the world. And I hope the entire world is upset–as they always are by cheeky Israeli TV ads–by this in-your-face video thumbing of the nose. If only they had the supermarket shoppers killing an Islamic terrorist for a real “clean-up on Aisle 8.” Oh, and they need to show the incompetent supermarket security guard, who could double as Dubai’s bungling police chief.
