Anti-Semitic Cartoon Blames the Jews

(Jerusalem Post) Seth J. Frantzman - On April 25, the New York Times international edition published a cartoon of a yarmulke-wearing, blind U.S. President Donald Trump being led by a dog with a Star of David collar and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's face for a head. Even if the Times subsequently said it was an error, they thought it was okay to print a cartoon showing the U.S. president being blindly led by the "Jewish dog." It used to be that we were told that Trump was driving a new wave of anti-Semitism in the U.S. But the cartoon depicts him as a Jew. Now we see how mainstream it has become to blame the Jews and Israel for the world's problems. The cartoon clearly presents the Jews as secretly controlling the U.S. president. No other country or minority group is subjected to such unrelenting and systematic hatred by mainstream U.S. newspapers. No one would dare to put an Islamic leader's face on a dog, with Islamic symbols, leading the U.S. president. How can we demand zero tolerance for anti-Semitism when this happens?
