The humor is coming from the sad irony that Europe and the rest of the world hasn't changed. Europe is still the same hellole for Jews now as it was for the last 2000 years. Jews are tarred and feathered like no other people. Every perceived Jewish/Israeli infraction is disproportionately kept alive and the commentators show their visible disdain for Israel/Jews. It feels as though Europe's hatred of Jews seeps out of every pore of every news story involving Jews. It's frightful and therefore something to be made fun of. Even when the evidence of the subject matter is up for question, the Jews/Israel is guilty. It is the scapegoating. The European press unfairly mocks and harrasses Israel. Europe completely lacks any understanding of the situation Israel faces. In paticular, it is the Brits hatred of Jews that reminds us the Holocaust can happen again.
Just a case in point: How much attention has the British media given to the fact that 3 Israeli passports were used by Iranian spies for travel to the Seychelles Islands? The passports were stolen from Israelis in Thailand. (By the way, nations usually put caught spies immediately on the next plane out of their country like Seychelles did.) Why wasn't there any editorial on how wrong it was to steal Israelis' identitities? Yes, the crime happened to Israelis and not from Israelis. And that is the joke. Don't forget that Jews became the funniest people in the world because we had to somehow deal with all the tortuous times Europeans heaped upon them year after year, century after century.

Op den duur vernietigt Israel zichzelf. Het gruwelijke is dat door deze fascistische houding van een aanzienlijk deel van de Joden in Israel de conclusie gerechtvaardigd lijkt dat Hitler uiteindelijk er toch in is geslaagd het Jodendom te vernietigen.
