Intent is hard to prove as far as Cohen goes.
I have read the opinions of the Kafaghnis .... about Cohens character they are insulted and angry.
Yet he makes one show after another he tours he is on billboards across the globe..
They say its satire and no doubt some of it is low grade schoolboy level satire.
But the most satirical aspect is Cohen a Jewish right winger thinking its satirical to stereotype and vilify an entire nation.
Years ago the English did the same in relation to the Irish and the Germans.
It is now not lawful.
I hear your heart when you say its nanny fanny ish to outlaw insults.
But its like the guys who made the movie about the Islamic prophet...they inflamed the tensions between islamists and christians to the point that in
Sydney Australia there were muslims rioting in central sydney.
We live in a melting pot world ...we do not want to alienate the muslims there number is huge.
They have zeal energy...we need to be awre of that.
Cohen is just fuelling the resentment.
The world has changed its not just about making Pals with the German or the Russian or the Brit or the texan its about knowing that some are so
deeply offended that they will kill to avenge their idea of god.
We need to be more culturally aware .
You cannot ridicule and belittle anyone and expect them to really be hunky dory about it.
Its stored up and filed away perhaps but never ever forgotten.
Cohen should know this...yet he hides behind the satirical excuse.
H eis no fool he knows and is following an agenda in my opinion.
