New Zealand Ignorance - An Oxymoron?

A New Zealand pizza parlor is using the image of Hitler to advertise their product. Articles appear in and the Jerusalem Post.

I am not surprised about this as these sort of publicity stunts appear every so often in backward countries but what is astounding is the defence of the poster by the advertising company. "He's almost the poster boy for the Jewish people. Don't forget – but don't look when we invade Palestine," Kirk MacGibbon said. An ignorant and stupid statement. I have rachmones on the Jewish Community in NZ in having to deal with people like this.
