Israeli satire show imagines a right-wing kindergarten

Lisa Goldman, 03 January 3 2011

Eretz Nehederet (It’s a Wonderful Country), is Israel’s most popular and most iconoclastic satire show. In a skit from a recent episode, it imagines a Tel Aviv kindergarten class with a curriculum managed by Im Tirtzu, the ultra-nationalist group that last year led a scurrilous campaign against Israeli NGOs like the New Israel Fund and Breaking the Silence.

As a few Facebook friends remarked, it’s so close to reality that one runs the risk of having friends view it out of context and conclude that it’s a real news item rather than satire.
