Jewish Riots Erupt Following Netanyahu Cartoon

In the wake of a controversial cartoon published in the Sunday Times of London, massive crowds of angry Jewish protestors gathered in Hyde Park yesterday and, whipped into a fervor by local rabbis, took to the streets of London.

The link is in the word "published."

I at first thought this was a joke, like a Jewish answer to the Danish Mohammed cartoons. Then it turns out it's real.

Wrong cartoon to print on Yom Hashoah. Aside from that, probably wouldn't have been a problem. Not that I could see the cartoon because it's not in the article.


The only thing that offended me about the article was the comparison  to al-Assad of Syria. That guy is an out and out mass murderer. Netanyahu is not remotely comparable to al-Assad. That's of course without a significant Syrian population in England as a constituency, so you wouldn't expect the same sort of demonstrations, but the equating of the two was just too far of a stretch.

^^ It's not a stretch if you're Palestinian! ^^

For those who don't get it, there were no riots.

Yes...  because "a bloody wall trapping the bodies of Palestinians"  is a great basis for humor, right?

The author of the post is making a comparison between the Jewish response to a critical cartoon and the history of Muslim responses.

I guess you need training wheels for any subtlety.

Yeah, I do. That's what I thought first, then it looked like an actual news item.
