This can't be the blood libel it's intended to be, can it? At first, I thought it was a cautionary example of how a Holocaust could be generated, perhaps an artist's vision of what Der Stürmer would produce if it were still publishing today.
But no. It's just another Sunday editorial cartoon in the Sunday Times of Britain, only coincidentally timed with Holocaust Memorial Day, of course. Raheem Kassam is sickened:
...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.
“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.
“The Jew’s symbol is a worm, not without reason. He seeks to creep up on what he wants.” - Nazi propaganda, 1934
How bad has it gotten in England? Worse than you might imagine. Caroline Glick reports from a recent visit to the Isle of the Dead (via Legal Insurrection):
The public atmosphere in England regarding Israel is ugly and violent….
A couple of impressions I took away from the experience: First, I can say without hesitation that I hope never to return to Britain. I actually don’t see any point. Jews are targeted by massive anti-Semitism of both the social and physical varieties. Why would anyone Jewish want to live there?
As to visiting as an Israeli, again, I just don’t see the point... there is no future for Jews in England.
