In Lebanon, a program called Palestine TV aired a report on Iran’s Holocaust cartoon contest. The announcer laments that Israel “peddles this contest as antisemitism.” He continues, “it had nothing to do with antisemitism,” as the camera pans to a caricature of the Israeli Prime Minister holding up fork and knife, with a blue Magen David on the napkin wrapped around his neck. The image is cut off, so we can only imagine what kind of non-antisemitic items are on his plate.
The contest’s only goal, he says, is to present the current Holocaust being perpetuated against the Palestinian people. Nope, no antisemitism here.
