Hamas-tied CAIR Joins Christians in Wrath Against Larry David and "Curb Your Enthusiasm"

The absurdity continues.   For those who don't know about the Larry David "peeing on Jesus" controversy, you can get our background on it, here.  People all over the world continue praying for Larry David to burn in hell for "peeing on Jesus" (despite the fact that it was a fictional scene of an accident where a little urine splashed on a painting.)  As I stated on Twitter:

Dear Morons: Larry David did not "pee on Jesus." A.) it was FICTION depicting an ACCIDENT B.) it was a PAINTING C.) Jesus is dead
Yet people continue to misrepresent reality.  They are bringing up all sorts of baseless comparisons, asking, "what if Larry David urinated on the Torah?"  As if Larry David actually urinated on anything.  As if this wasn't a fictional scene in a tv show depicting an accident.  As if a painting of Jesus hanging in a bathroom is equal in Holiness to the Torah.  As if Jews aren't prohibited to bring anything Holy or sacred into the bathroom, and thus the comparison has absolutely no basis in reality.

If anything, a fair comparison would be to ask:  "What if Larry David created a fictional scene where someone accidentally splashed a drop of urine on a picture of a Torah?"  You know what?  I wouldn't care.  I don't think any Jews would.

Then they claim that Larry David would never "pee on the Qu'ran."  Well, it seems like he might as well have tried, since now pro-Hamas CAIR is joining in the Jew hatred. 

Entertainment Weekly reports:
It’s not just Catholics who are causing a stir about the recent Curb Your Enthusiasm episode that featured Larry David’s character accidentally splattering urine on a painting of Jesus. The Washington, D.C.-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is now calling on HBO to apologize for the episode, in which Larry David’s character accidentally splattered urine on a painting of Jesus. CAIR’s national executive director Nihad Awad sent a letter to HBO chairman and CEO Bill Nelson, which read in part: “It is beyond tasteless to insult the religious sensibilities of billions of people in America and around the world with such a cheap and vulgar publicity stunt. Jesus, peace be upon him, is loved and revered by both Christians and Muslims. Muslims view him as one of God’s greatest messengers to mankind.”

The letter ended, “We understand the drive for ratings, but no one benefits from such a crude attempt to boost the network’s bottom line by manufacturing a religious controversy. HBO should apologize.”

Awad noted that Muslim American TV viewers had called CAIR to express their concerns about the show. CAIR is the largest Muslim advocacy and civil rights group in the U.S.

HBO’s statement in response to complaints yesterday was: “Anyone who follows Curb Your Enthusiasm knows that the show is full of parody and satire. Larry David makes fun of everyone, most especially himself. The humor is always playful and certainly never malicious.”
Happy now?
