A Saudi satellite television network’s use of Adolf Hitler’s image to promote its September programming is drawing the ire of Jewish groups.

The ad campaign for Dubai-based MBC Action features clips from the 2009 Quentin Tarantino film “Inglourious Basterds,” where the Nazi dictator is shown speaking in a room to other Nazi officials.

Arabic subtitles inserted under the images focus on the television network’s new programming in September. Hitler is made to say, “Look at the achievements of MBC Action. They will control the entire region. They are preparing for a campaign called ‘September to Remember.'”

“This offensive and outrageous campaign trivializes the Holocaust by turning Hitler into a cartoonish poster child,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director.

    “Why would a Saudi media outlet want to associate itself with one of history’s most demonic mass murderers?”

    Because Islam’s Sharia & Nazism are identical

    Because Herr Muhammad’s Quran and Herr Hitler’s Mein Kampf are also identical

    Can anyone refute my statements?

    • You are full of hatred and rage, nothing could be farther from the truth then your assumptions. Look at what your own record is in the past 69 years even after suffering at the hands of a monster. It is good to be realistic and not just passionate and powerful all the time, remember Hitler also thought he was invincible.
