The reasons the cartoon below is antisemitic
- Demonization: The image is a dehumanizing stereotype that literally demonizes Jews as bloodthirsty, murdering evil creatures. The Nazis utilized similar imagery in their anti-Jewish propaganda that prepared the way for the Holocaust.
- Holocaust denial: The demonized Jew is saying “Holocaust” with a long Pinocchio-like nose suggesting that the Holocaust is a lie.
- Jews as manipulators: Jews are demonized as lying about the Holocaust in order to kill peace (represented by the bird) implying that Jews are violent haters of humanity, another old stereotype that incited anti-Jewish violence over the centuries.
- The Jewish star represents Jews, Jewish peoplehood, the Jewish religion, and the Jewish State: This vicious portrayal is not only about the star on the Israeli flag. The star in this drawing demonizes Jewish people around the world.
