Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I loved the Groland take on the Passion of the Christ, where the antisemitism is removed. Instead He is betrayed by the Blacks, the Chinese, and some Portuguese guest workers. (I'm sure I've forgotten a few groups.)

Ahh I had forgotten about that one, it's excellent!!

A satire about a movie director who's offended by the anti-semitism in Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ" and who decides to set things right with a new movie of his own.

In his movie we learn that Christ carried his own cross because the Blacks that were paid to do it, didn't, being lazy like most Blacks are. And it's not the Jews who betrayed Christ but the Chinese, who are generally malicious and cunning. Christ ended up half-naked on the cross because some Arabs stole his clothes, since most Arabs are thieves. Finally, Jesus was nailed on the cross by Portuguese workers, because when they're not masons, the Portuguese generally are carpenters.

Finally the director is preparing a sequel, "The Resurrection of Christ", in which we learn that Jesus left his tumb because he was tired of all the noise that a Roma campment nearby was making.

It can be watched here (in French however):

I forgot: the movie director explains that all the Jews did were sell Jesus his underpants, because Jews are very good when it comes to clothes and money.
