Please formally apologize and take accountability for broadcasting and singing a holiday song glorifying the burning of Jews. Create a commission to broadcast Holocaust education on the same state sponsored network.

An anti-Semitic song praising God for burning Jews in chimneys was recently aired on a public broadcasting station in Romania. They broadcasted a group of holiday singers celebrating the season by singing: “The kikes, damn kikes, Holy God would not leave the kike alive, neither in heaven nor on earth, only in the chimney as smoke, this is what the kike is good for, to make kike smoke through the chimney on the street.”

270,000 Romanian Jews were murdered during the Holocaust. Surely, Romania blames the Nazi invasion for the genocide, but clearly there is a tradition of anti-Semitism in the country, especially if 60 years later the "joy" of the season is marked by lyrics that are anti-Semitic and reminiscent of the Nazi death camps.

Please sign the petition requesting that the Romanian President Traian Băsescu, Prime Minister Victor Ponta, the Society for the Preservation and Promotion of Traditional Culture ,TVR3 Verde, and the Dor Transilvan ensemble offer a public apology for the broadcast. President Băsescu and TVR3 Verde should also announce the formation of a committee to plan a broadcast on the history of anti-Semitism and the Holocaust on their public station.

Here is the anti-Semitic broadcast.
