Ger­man news­pa­per’s Ne­tanyahu car­toon crit­i­cised as anti-Semitic

The Free Press Journal - - WORLD -

BER­LIN: Ger­many's new anti-Semitism com­mis­sioner says a lead­ing news­pa­per crossed a “red line” with a car­i­ca­ture of Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu por­tray­ing the Is­raeli Prime Min­is­ter with over­sized lips, ears and nose. Felix Klein, who was ap­pointed this year amid con­cerns over ris­ing anti-Semitism, told the Bild news­pa­per on Thurs­day that Tues­day's car­toon in Mu­nich’s Sued­deutsche Zeitung in the af­ter­math of the US de­ci­sion to move its em­bassy in Is­rael to Jerusalem re­called “the in­tol­er­a­ble de­pic­tions of Nazi pro­pa­ganda.”
