Sunday Times' Holocaust Remembrance: Blood Libel Cartoon

This so-called media organization sucks testes, just saying.

Why can't cartoonists seem to criticise Israel without the use of big noses and blood libels? And why do the mainstream papers still publish this stuff?[...]

For some, however, Holocaust Memorial Day is transfiguring into a day that ‘the Jews’ or ‘Israel’ (for they will use these terms interchangeably), are to be attacked or set up, completely leaving behind the idea that the country came into existence in the wake of the greatest single crime in history[...]

For this is exactly what the Sunday Times has today done; not simply treading the fine line between criticism and blood libel, but indeed spitting all over it, leaving it for dust, and careering head first into anti-Semitismsville.

“Will cementing peace continue?” reads the caption beneath the image of a Quasimodo-like Netanyahu. As if this half-hearted attempt at a pun would help masquerade the overt racism within the image. No.

1 Why are there no links to the Sunday Times article at The Commentator? Plus, just a little rant, why does The Commentator website have the share buttons floating over the article? That's really annoying.

2 The UK is going down the toilet. It was and has a big part in the continuing unrest in the ME, specifically with Israel, today.

I don't have a big nose and I don't drink blood. Creeps.

3 Some people are just too stupid by far, and no amount of reasoning will ever change them.

4 There remains nothing "Great" about Great Britain. And the US isn't far behind.

5 Bubbe: Remember the UK lost it's world wide empire after backing the Arab league and oppressing the Jews in WWII. Now we have Englandistan. They are gone.

7 #5 yeah, that's a part of history people tend to overlook.

#6 Erowmer Saw an interesting picture yesterday from WWII. 3 US Army Jews holding Shabbot services in Goebells home after it was captured and secured. Big swastika on a cabinet in back of the rabbi, had to be an officer, holding the Torah with Shabbot candles on a bit nazi looking table and the men in prayer shawls and tefellin praying. Spooky to say the least but the 3 soldiers did it and the pic is a unique sideline to that particular history.

8 Big noses should only be on Arabs?

9 Why should big noses stereotype be a signature stereotype of anyone, occam?

10 Bubbe, my middle son's (the little Baptist!) Godfather was Meyer Bluestein. Meyer's branch came to America in the first half of the 1700's. The ones who stayed in Europe died. He always cried when he talked about them. I STRONGLY dislike those who are speak against Jews, but I hate nazis.

Why do Jews continue to characterize Xariff as a goat humping camel jockey and worse?
The object of such characterizations is to make one feel bad.
It's a two way street.
Pot meet kettle.
