Al Jazeera Tweets Antisemitic Meme

The following was tweeted from the Al Jizz English Twitter account – before being summarily deleted after the ensuing uproar.

Given the blatantly antisemitic nature of the meme, some theorized that Al Jizz were claiming the climate change deniers are antisemitic. But there was no suggestion of this in the Reality Check video to which the tweet was referring.



So why the antisemitic meme? Al Jizz are claiming it was all a horrible mistake.

I am not sure how an image could get mistakenly attached. The only way for this to happen would be for the person managing the Twitter account to already have the image on their computer to begin with.

Besides, I am less inclined to accept this excuse, given Al Jizz has already dabbled in overt antisemitism.
