Artists are murdered for portraying the Prophet Mohammed and now an artist needs police protection for comparing Jesus and a fast-food magnate. The riot has not finished yet. It shouldn’t get any more silly. But would we Jews get offended if someone showed Moses other than as the super-humble saint we know him? Unlikely.
There was an ultra-Orthodox MK who got into heart trouble when someone slandered King David but generally we don’t get too excited about stuff like that.
Jews consider their leaders human with flaws. Their lessons should be learned and we may even learn from their mistakes – what not to do.
Our leaders for the superficial observer even seem all too human. So when they treat them as “no one special” we shrug and see that as a sign of the speaker not really knowing his subject.
Besides, the Jewish tradition rests on asking critical questions. The Talmud would not exist without the question mark (in translation).
So no, Jews will not get hot or cold from someone taking a jab at Moses, Abraham, King David or G^d – for that matter. Trying to get everyone on the same page is just not a Jewish pastime.
(We do take offense when portraying any Jew in antisemitic fashion, as money grabber or murderer or portraying Hitler as a Jew. But that’s not for being critical of comical about our leaders. That’s Jew-hatred.)
Should Muslims and Christians not learn this from us? Just saying.
