Jewish Anti-Jewish Cartoons

Layla points me the way to The Israeli Anti-Semitic Cartoons Contest. The cartoons are not only hilarious, but they teach awesome lessons about the value of liberty and self-directed criticism. These anti-Jewish cartoons drawn by Jews show that if you forbid an idea, it only adds cachet and allure to it; however, if you not only permit but confront and roll around in an idea for a while, you can own it and even take away its power by its exposure to the light of day.

This is only my sense as a non-Jewish reader, but it seems to me that these cartoons, by revelling in anti-Jewish sentiment, completely deflate any sense of righteous anti-Jewish prejudice that a person might have. Interesting how that works.

    Here is a link to anti-Semitic cartoons published in the Arab world. One Moslem reader says the difference between these and the Danish cartoons is that these cartoons are an accurate portrayal of Jews.

    Well, they’re anti-Israeli, which is not necessarily the same thing as anti-Jew.

    Sharon certainly isn’t spared; the noses, and probably the rats as well would not be published here.
