Cartoon Controversy Again!


Yes and it once again is centered in the Norse region of Europe. However, this time it is a cartoon that strikes at Israel and the Jews. The Jerusalem Post has the cartoon and the story.

This cartoon makes what is a fairly typical slur and likens Israel to one Nazi or another. This one has PM Olmert re-enacting a scene from Schindler's List where the concentration camp commandant plinking Jewish prisoners. Get it?

The cartoon smacks of moral blindness. I wonder what Norway do if their neighbor was sending in homicide bombers and kidnapping border guards?

I see no signs of riots or people ordering the cartoonist murdered. I see complaints and letter writing campaigns being started. Big difference.
