After the New York Times published an anti-Semitic caricature last week, an Israeli cartoonist has responded i the Makor Rishon newspaper with the title: “No Clarification Necessary.”
The Times cartoon appeared on Thursday in the international edition of the newspaper. It depicted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a dog with a Star of David around his neck leading a blind U.S. President Donald Trump wearing a skullcap.
The response from cartoonist Shay Charka was a caricature of a dog as well, but this time, instead of the face of the Israeli prime minister, it depicts a book called The Protocols, an obvious reference to the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, an infamous work of fiction blaming Jews for a supposed conspiracy to dominate the world.
Around this dog’s neck are the letters BDS, the acronym for the anti-Israel “Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions” movement.
Being led by the dog in this cartoon is an individual with a copy of the New York Times in place of his head.
The New York Times has apologized for the cartoon, claiming that a single editor was responsible.
