Italy: Jewish community upset at Holocaust parody

Photo from Grillo's blog

An anti-Semitic post by a comedian who founded the Italian parliament’s third-largest party has sparked outrage in Italy’s tiny Jewish community. 
Comedian Beppe Grillo’s blog on Monday featured a photo of Auschwitz’s gate with the words changed to sarcastically refer to a shadowy organization of Italian business and political figures. It also played with the title of a work by Primo Levi, a now deceased Italian writer who survived deportation to a Nazi death camp.
