An anti-Semitic birthday card in France

Roger Cukierman, President of CRIF, has written to the CEO of the national Postal Service to inform him that offensive animated birthday cards have gone on sale in country’s post offices; against a backdrop of dollar bills, a grossly caricatured picture and soundtrack of a Jewish figure shows his penchant for miserliness.
The anti-Semitic cliché of the miserly rich Jew shown on these cards has motivated the President of CRIF to ask that they be withdrawn from sale.
