In Israel, a lot of people are talking about a Facebook post. It was put up by Yair Netanyahu, the son of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Over the weekend, the 26-year-old posted a cartoon bashing his father's adversaries. That cartoon was swiftly criticized for containing anti-Semitic imagery. The post was shared by former KKK leader David Duke. It was also praised by the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer. Netanyahu's son, we should say, did take down the post. But the prime minister has declined to comment on it. ...You can see the cartoon here.
Well, if you can picture it, it's a row of characters. And each one dangles a kind of fishing rod in front of the next. And it seems to depict who controls the world. So the liberal, American, Jewish philanthropist George Soros is the master manipulator in the cartoon.
So why is this news? Because no one is supposed to suggest that rich liberal Jews control some politicians? Because no one is supposed to get agreement from some guy who dressed up in a KKK outfit 40 years ago?
What I get out of this is that some Jewish-influenced news media do not want anyone to suggest that liberal Jews control the world, and if someone does, then the Jews will destroy him.
After a;;. a;; the other ethnic groups get mocked in political cartoons without such controversy.
