I know that ridiculing public figures is a no-no. But does Apple approve app that make fun of mankind's worst enemies?

As a business, they wanna please everybody and appear to take no sides. So if they approve an app featuring:

a) Hitler, they're anti-semitists.

b) Sadaam, they're anti-arab.

Look-a-likes are as closest as devs are gonna get. Being politically correct sucks.

Ha, you call Hitler and Hussein mankind's worst enemies.
I have two words for you:

An app featuring that slimebag of a dev wouldn't be approved, that's for sure.
