The anti-Semitism of The Guardian
The victim in this cartoon is a Lebanese child. Tragically, very tragically, there will be many. But the gross misrepresentation of Hezbollah as a mere ‘wasp sting’ is an insult to all those Jewish children who have been hurt, killed or maimed by a ceaseless campaign of hatred by terrorists and their extremist supporters. These are not scatty, disorganised insects, but an organised, well-armed terror force which has plagued Israel for years.
Cranmer considers this cartoon to be a further ‘faith crime’. Whatever the rights or wrongs in the current Middle East crisis - there is no excuse for the British press to resort to material which may incite hatred, and this is clearly designed to do just that. Such a cartoon simply feeds the prejudice that many Muslims already feel towards the Jews and Israel, and it clearly belongs to the era of Nazi propaganda.
Cranmer asks visitors to this site to consider complaining to:
