Too True to be Good: Australian Press condemns Anti-Israel Cartoon

70914036

“in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” — George Orwell

It didn’t take long after the hypocritical parades in Paris for some people to get back to business as usual – dictating to others what can and can’t be said:

An Australian press organization has judged that a cartoon published in The Sydney Morning Herald violated press Standards of Practice by the way it linked symbols of the Jewish faith to criticism of Israel.

The adjudication, issued by the Australian Press Council, concerned a cartoon drawn by Glen Le Lievre and published by the Morning Herald on July 26, in the midst of the most recent Gaza conflict. The cartoon depicted an elderly man with a sizable nose wearing glasses and a yarmulke, reclining in a chair emblazoned with a Star of David, and holding a remote control while watching from hilltop as a city, which by implication is Gaza, explodes.

Le Lievre is an internationally published cartoonist whose work has appeared in publications including The New Yorker, Reader’s Digest, and Mad Magazine.

In the adjudication issued January 17, the Press Council states, “A linkage with Israeli nationality might have been justifiable in the public interest, despite being likely to cause offense. But the same cannot be said of the implied linkage with the Jewish faith that arose from inclusion of the kippah and the Star of David.”

Nevermind that Israel has the Jewish star of David emblazoned on its flag and incessantly declares itself the world’s Jewish homeland. What matters is political correctness. They can call themselves Jewish, but if you call them Jewish you’re a goddamn anti-semite.

In response to the adjudication, the Morning Herald republished an apology that it originally published on August 3, 2014, one week after the cartoon originally ran. That apology likewise regretted the use of the religious symbols of the yarmulke and Star of David, although it noted that Le Lievre’s work commonly depicts people with large noses, regardless of race or ethnicity, and that the image was inspired by news photographs of Israelis watching the bombardment of Gaza from the hilltops of Sderot.

The Press Council’s statement praised the apology and noted that the Morning Herald’s editor in chief and news director had attended “seminars facilitated by the Jewish Board of Deputies to raise awareness about imagery that could be construed as anti-Semitic.”

You see, when you wield immense economic power, it’s quite easy to control others. You don’t need to brandish a sword over their heads.

  1. The PALESTINIANS are the descendants of HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS. HOLOCAUST by ISRAEL.
    The Canaanites/Amorites/Philistines/Midianites/PALESTINIANS were in PALESTINE long before Israel was even thought of. The PALESTINIAN’s ancestors were there when ABRAHAM passed through from Babylon/Ur …… How else could Moses/Israel BRAG about exterminating/”SHOAHing” them !?!?!?!
    Israel’s “claim” to Palestine is based entirely on War Crimes and GENOCIDE.

    These passages are the foundation of Israel’s self written “deed” to the land of Palestine.
    If they are not ALL true, then the entire “claim” to Palestine, in the book THEY WROTE, IS NOT TRUE.
    Deuteronomy 3:18 and I commanded you at that time, saying, The Lord your God hath given you this land to possess it: ye shall pass over armed before your brethren the children of Israel, all that are meet for the war.
    Deuteronomy 7:16, 20:16 “And thou shalt consume all the peoples which the Lord thy God shall deliver unto thee; thine eye shall not pity them…thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth.”
    Deuteronomy 15:6 “For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.”

  2. Israeli “leaders” are such hypocraps. They want to go down in history as the perfect race/civilization that ruled the world as their slaves. Seems to me that God’s favorite people would not lie, cheat, steal, and mass murder. I do think that Satan’s favorite people would. Go figure.
