The question must be asked: what is the difference between this video and the Matisyahu video? It's all about perception. You indicate that, as a Hasidic Jew, you find Matisyahu's video offensive. I see this as hypocritical when, immediately preceding this statement you have a video (which you indicate as "cute") mocking an entire people as opposed to maybe simply mocking the laws of the Greek rulers at the time. I guess what I am trying to say is that as an outsider looking in, (and even though I do not agree with what the Greek leaders of the time did to the Jewish people) each video, in it's own way, is simplifying and/or bastardizing a larger discussion. We must always be careful with our opinions. Sometimes we do not practice what we preach.
