Anti-Israel Cartoons Appear in German Press

Posted by Ron / on 08/13/2013 / 0 Comments

New anti-Israel caricatures have appeared in a major German newspaper. In today's Stuttgarter Zeitung, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is shown sitting on a park bench, holding a piece of bread for peace doves that he is poisoning with liquid from a bottle labeled "settlement construction."

The cartoon caption falsely references a 1938 anti-Nazi song by an Austrian Jewish emigre, Georg Kreisler, called "Pigeon Poisoner." On Facebook, Kreisler's daughter sharply criticized the caricaturist for a drawing she deemed "anti-Semitic and wrong in content." Israel, she writes, has made numerous peace offers. She adds that her father never would have supported the view of the cartoonist.

"To insult a Holocaust survivor while attacking the Jewish state is offensive and incorrigible," said Ron Hershco of the Herscho Foundation.

Ami Mesika, and other community leaders joined in speaking against this matter.
