ADL blasts anti-Semitic Gaza cartoons | Jerusalem Post
The Anti-Defamation League on Wednesday blasted a series of “outrageous anti-Semitic” cartoons in the Arabic media that compare the situation of Palestinians in Gaza to the Holocaust. The cartoons, which appear in Arab newspapers across the Middle East, repeatedly portray Israelis and Jews as bloodthirsty Nazis, with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert depicted as a modern-day Hitler, said the human rights organization, which is devoted to fighting anti-Semitism worldwide. “Once again, the Arab press has taken a no-holds-barred approach in their criticism of Israel, using the latest hostilities as an excuse to diminish and trivialize the Holocaust while depicting Israeli soldiers and Jews as cold-blooded Nazi killers,” said ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman, who is a Holocaust survivor. “When it comes to the six million, there are no boundaries, there is no conscience for the Arab cartoonists, who cynically turn the Holocaust on those who suffered the most under Hitler’s regime,” Foxman said.
