Philippine president apologizes to Jews for Hitler remark

We shall over come some daaaaaay
Manila, Philippines -- Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who recently told Obama to go to hell, last week compared and apparently justified his drug-enforcement techniques to Hitler's techniques against the Jews in the Holocaust.

Duterte visited the Beit Yaacov synagogue in Makati city Tuesday to personally apologize to the Jewish community for making that "terribly wrong" comparison. "I would like to apologize and it comes from the heart," he told members of the Jewish Association of the Philippines. 

Whose heart it comes from was not made clear.

Ridiculing those who compared him to Hitler, he acknowledge that he screwed up in making a comparison to what happened to the Jewish people under Hitler to what he was trying to accomplish by murdering drug dealers and users.

"I mentioned the word Jewish and that was what was terribly wrong and for that I apologize," he puffy-faced leader said, drawing applause. "But I'm not one of the racist members of this republic."

The original statement Duterte made on Friday were: "Hitler massacred 3 million Jews . . . there's 3 million drug addicts. There are. I'd be happy to slaughter them."

His statement drew outrage across the globe, except in places like: Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Yemen, Dubai, Jordan, Turkey, Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, the UAE, Pakistan, the United Nations, American college campuses, Libya and others, many of which end in 'stan.'
