    During a press conference on Wednesday, Von Trier joked that he was a Nazi and that he sympathized with Adolf Hitler, comments which angered Jewish organizations.

    "I think I understand the man," Von Trier said. "He's not what you would call a good guy, but I understand much about him and I sympathize with him a little bit. But come on, I'm not for the Second World War, and I'm not against Jews.

    "I am of course very much for Jews. No, not too much because Israel is a pain in the ass. But still, how can I get out of this sentence?"
