My, the British are a revolting group.
The Sunday Times marked Holocaust Memorial Day in a less-than-traditional manner, running a virulently anti-Israel cartoon depicting a big-nosed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu paving a wall with the blood and limbs of writhing Palestinians.
The cartoon included a caption beneath the image entitled “Israeli elections- will cementing peace continue?” Drawn by Gerald Scarfe, the cartoon appeared in the national paper on Sunday.
“This cartoon would be offensive at any time of the year, but to publish it on International Holocaust Remembrance Day is sickening and expresses a deeply troubling mindset,” said European Jewish Congress President Dr. Moshe Kantor. “This insensitivity demands an immediate apology from both the cartoonist and the paper’s editors.”
You know, I was really thinking about London this year. I have to be in Europe anyway, and it is so close. I wanted to go. But look at this – they are savages. What is the difference between this cartoon and Nazi propaganda? And even if they “apologize”, as a member of Tony Blair’s party just did for accusing “the Jews” of carrying out atrocities akin to the Holocaust, what does that apology mean? Nothing. Surely the cartoonist and the editor understood that they were perpetuating that old BRITISH blood libel. How can any Jewish person even feel safe there?
Lest you think that this was a fluke, here is the 2003 best political cartoon of Britain prize winner by Dave Brown and published in The Independent:
Notice the theme. Here we have the classic blood libel of the hooked nosed, savage Jew (Sharon this time) eating a Palestinian baby. And this was what the cartoon association of Great Britain chose as the very best political cartoon for 2003.
So the Brits are savages, right? I mean, what else could they be?
