Viz, today’s Associated Press missive about how the Broadway musical “The Producers” has been translated into Hebrew, and — shock, awe — is playing to packed houses.

The show has been a huge hit in New York for four years running; unsurprisingly, it’s a huge hit in Tel Aviv. “But what about the swastikas!?” wail American reporters, “won’t it upset them?!”

These folks live with Hamas shooting guns in the air joyously cheering for the elimination of Israel; does anyone seriously think Israelis are worried about anything Mel Brooks has to say?
