Norwegian bank offended Jews with ‘anti-Semitic’ credit card


One of the biggest Norwegian banks DNB has issued a credit card with a picture of “a hook-nosed Jew, laughing gleefully against a backdrop of gold coins,” according to The Jerusalem Post.

The card annoyed The Hallelu Foundation, which tries to create a positive image of Israel in the world. The foundation has accused the bank of anti-Semitism.

“We have been notified about a picture of a Visa card issued by us, with an anti-Semitic drawing of a Jew. We have, however, strict guidelines for what kind of pictures that are allowed, and this control is manual. Unfortunately, our manual controls have failed in this particular case, and we are deeply sorry for that,” stated the apology from the bank published on Hallelu’s Facebook page.

The bank also clarified that the card will be blocked, and the client will be given a new one with a neutral design.

Last year, Spanish clothes retailer Zara had to remove a striped baby shirt with a sewn-on badge similar to the Star of David, after shoppers were outraged by its similarities to a Nazi death camp uniform.

“The item in question, part of the Cowboy Collection for babies, was inspired by the character of the sheriff in Wild West movies,” explained the store.

    Besides the CA pig that shot himself (SWEET!!!), this is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while. Gotta love the stereotypical “OY VEY!” hands to the sides of the face, and you could hide a kilo of coke in that schnozz.

    Freakin’ hilarious!!!

  2. As far as the Sheriff star goes, I don’t see anything Holohoaxish about it.

    The credit card pic on the other hand should make the Jews proud since they are the one’s who control the money. Their image on money is what every Jew dreams of. What is there for them to be offended of? Oh that’s right, the Chosen People are not supposed to be shown as “tyrants” or “kings”. They are supposed to be shown as “victims”. I see how it is.

    BULLSH#T, BULLSH#T, BULLSH#T!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    You can (legitimately) call it the Seal of Solomon, OR the Star of Remphan/Rephan/Raiphan, BUT NOT THE STAR OF DAVID!!!!!

  4. Ahahhhaaaaahahahhah! I think everyone should carry one of these cards! Where can I get mine? Might as well have a card that shows a picture of an international bankster.
