Romanian state TV condemned for Christmas carol show where choir sang about burning Jews

Europe generally has always been antisemitic  -- and still is.  They are usually more discreet about it than this, though.  Ask almost any Pole what he thinks of Jews and you will hear it all

A state owned TV channel in Romania has sparked outrage after broadcasting songs by a choir who sang anti-Semitic 'Christmas carols' which celebrate the burning of Jews.

TVR3, which is ran by the Romanian government, broadcast the performance by a folk group from Cluj last week.

As part of their set, they sang a carol which glorified the Holocaust and called for Jewish people to be burned in the chimney.

According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the broadcast aired on December 5 and reached many rural parts of the Eastern European country.

Romania's Foreign Minister Titus Corlatean has publicly criticised the broadcast and has even called on prosecutors to take action against the channel.

In a statement, TVR said they were not responsible for the songs performed by the choir, insisting a selection was chosen by a local culture committee. 

According to the Jewish Telegraph Agency, a complaint has been sent to Romanian President Traian Basescu and Prime Minister Victor Ponta which reads: 'It is outrageous that members of the public weren't scandalized by an anti-Semitic song calling for people to burn Jews.'

Bosses at TVR are already in the process of being replaced after previous unacceptable conduct. It's head Claudiu Saftoiu and the rest of the management have been removed from their posts.

It is not coincidence that most of the “final solution” camps were located in Poland.
