Sunday, January 27, today, is the United Nations’ annual Holocaust Memorial Day, which is observed throughout the world, and especially in Europe.
The cartoon at the top left of this post was deemed appropriate for the day and was published by the Sunday Times of London (which once upon a time was one of London’s less anti-Semitic papers, alongside the Telegraph) in honor of the occasion. That’s Prime Minister Netanyahu sitting on top of the wall. At the bottom of the wall, it says ‘Israeli elections.’ And all the way at the bottom it asks ‘Will cementing peace continue?” This is Raheem Kassam at the Commentator.
Last week, it wasMember of Parliament David Ward MP, the case of whom highlights an ever growing contingent of anti-Israel sentiment within the British government. These are the fools who would have you believe that Israel’s security barrier is 100 percent concrete, 100 feet tall, and built from the blood of Palestinians.
And who could possibly blame them for having this ill-informed idea, when their fellow MPs invite them to one-sided trips to the West Bank while at the same time referring to Hamas and Hezbollah as ‘friends’ (more on this tomorrow).
But more to the point, who can blame them when some of the country’s smartest media outlets present Israel and its leaders in this particular light: the large-nosed Jew, hunched over a wall, building with the blood of Palestinians as they writhe in pain within it.
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.
