The Simpsons Beat Obama To Israel

From Haaretz:
The first images from the upcoming episode of The Simpsons, in which the animated family visits Israel, were released this week after six months of buzz over the special show to be aired in the United States on March 28.

The episode, titled "The Greatest Story Ever D'ohed," includes scenes of Homer and Bart at the Western Wall with their Israeli tour guide, who will be voiced by British comedian Sascha Baron Cohen, of Borat and Bruno fame.

In the episode, Homer gets "Jerusalem Syndrome" and believes that he is the Messiah.
And in case you had any doubt:
"This is an episode that people from all three religions will be equally offended by," said Simpsons producer Al Jean.
Equally offended?
I didn't know the show had such brave creative writers.
