Sunday Times of London defends anti-Semitic cartoon as 'typically robust'
The Sunday Times of London has defended an anti-Semitic cartoon it published on Holocaust Memorial Day
, which shows Prime Minister Netanyahu supervising the construction of a wall with people trapped inside, as 'typically robust
“This is a typically robust cartoon by Gerald Scarfe,” said
a spokesperson for The Sunday Times, adding, “The Sunday Times firmly
believes that it is not anti-Semitic. It is aimed squarely at Mr
Netanyahu and his policies, not at Israel, let alone at Jewish people.”
The spokesperson said that appearance of the offending cartoon on
Holocaust Memorial Day which is commemorated Sunday was coincidental,
“It appears today because Mr Netanyahu won the Israeli election last
week,” said the statement.
If anyone still reads it, I think a boycott of the Sunday Times would be appropriate.
