N.Y.’s “Unfit” Times: Trump depicted as skull-capped religious Jew led by Jewish-starred dog – cartoon hate from far Reich!

Cartoon shows blind Donald Trump, led by Netanyahu, a dog wearing Jewish star

The New York Times may have been surprised that many of its readers didn’t share approval of a political cartoon humiliating President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Thursday’s international edition.

The political cartoon in question showed a blind Trump, wearing a pair of black glasses, being led by a dog, depicted as Netanyahu. The dog had a Star of David on its collar.

This cartoon appeared in the paper’s opinion section, next to a column by Thomas Friedman, an avid associate of both the Bilderberg Group and Trilateral Commission – two secret organizations critical of Israel’s economic nationalism. Friedman has argued that congressional ovations for Netanyahu were “bought and paid for by the Israel lobby.”

It’s not just NYT – check these Glenn Greenwald “contributions”

An editor’s note appeared in the paper’s Sunday international edition, soft-pedaling the religious attack:

Hate cartoons about Netanyahu even came from a Swiss ambassador

“Another disgusting display of vile anti-Semitic trope celebrated … The NY Times is signaling to the world that antisemitism is real, here and welcome,” wrote philanthropist Adam Milstein, co-founder of the Israeli-American Council, where he currently serves as Chairman of the Board.

Imam Mohamad Tawhidi condemned it on social media, saying it was reminiscent of anti-Semitic Islamist texts comparing Jews and dogs.

Tawhidi@Imamofpeace tweeted:

صحيفة نيويورك تايمز تنشر مقالة دولية تحمل رسومًا كاريكاتورية عن الرئيس ترامب كونه يهوديًا أعمى ونتنياهو كلب إسرائيلي. نوع الكلب ألماني، يشير إلى النازيين.. والسؤال هو: ماذا سيحدث إذا كان هذا الكاريكاتير ضد زعيم دولة إسلامية؟ الله اكبر يا ديمقراطية…

Translated from Arabic by Microsoft:
The New York Times publishes an international article with cartoons about President Trump being a blind Jew and an Israeli dog Netanyahu. The type of German dog, refers to the Nazis.. The question is: what will happen if this caricature is against the leader of an Islamic State? Allahu akbar, O democracy…

Jerusalem Post editor Seth Frantzman tweeted:

Shame on the NYT for this. How hard is in a time of increasing #antisemitism not to publish an anti-semitic cartoon? This is a major newspaper. Dozens of people must have seen this before it went to press. No one said anything?

Frantzman also was not impressed with the editor’s note.

This is what The New York Times thinks of us Israelis. Even if they subsequently said it was an error, they thought it was okay to print a cartoon showing the US president being blindly led by the “Jewish dog”?

And not only that, those who watched as it went to print thought it was fine to put a Jewish skullcap on the US president. Dual loyalty? No need to even wrestle with that question.

The Post’s editor said “it used to be that we were told that Trump was fostering Trump antisemitism and driving a new wave of antisemitism in the US.”

But the cartoon depicts him as a Jew. Well, which is it? Is he fostering antisemitism, or is he now a closet Jew being led by Israel, depicted as a Jewish dog? We used to say that images “conjured up memories” of 1930s antisemitism. This didn’t conjure it up; this showed us exactly what it looked like.

The Nazis also depicted us as animals. They also put Stars of David on us. Antisemites have compared us to dogs, pigs and monkeys before. It used to be that it was on the far-Right that Jews were depicted as controlling the world, like an octopus or a spider.

But now we see how mainstream it has become to blame the Jews and Israel for the world’s problems.

Frantzman also notes that “blaming syndication doesn’t fly, as multiple people, editors, would see it and have the opportunity to remove it prior to using it in their paper. None, apparently, found any problem with the cartoon.”

Adding insult to injury, NYT dived into the controversy again yesterday with a note on a Tweet, this time saying “sorry.” Assuming American stupidity, the Tweet proposed the preposterous: blaming some single employee for the mistake, and explaining the huge cartoon was only printed in the edition that serves its other 7.2 billion potential readers, and not in America.

We are deeply sorry for the publication of an anti-Semitic political cartoon last Thursday in the print edition of The New York Times that circulates outside of the United States, and we are committed to making sure nothing like this happens again.

Such imagery is always dangerous, and at a time when antisemitism is on the rise worldwide, it’s all the more unacceptable. We have investigated how this happened and learned that, because of a faulty process, a single editor working without adequate oversight downloaded the syndicated cartoon and make the decision to include it on the Opinion page.

The matter remains under review, and we are evaluating our internal processes and training. We anticipate significant changes.

The syndicate blamed for the “downloaded” cartoon was the New York Times Syndicate, which supplies cartoons not only to its parent NYT, but publications around the world. Who approved it there? We’ll never know.

The following video blasts the Times and questions its sincerity:

Jewish NYT founder

NYT owners were once Jewish – the newspaper was founded by Adolph Ochs – but over time, conversion and other factors seem to have contributed to what is unquestionably a callous approach to religion in general and Judaism in particular.

The Times is not alone in pushing Jewish ethnicity and ignoring the reality that Jewish describes a religion, not a nationality or race. The Nazis, for example, promoted the idea that even a practicing Christian – with just one Jewish grandparent – should be gassed to death for having “impure” racial blood.

The Stockholm Declaration’s committee on Antisemitism and Holocaust Denial called for the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) Plenary in Budapest 2015 to adopt a working definition of antisemitism.

On 26 May 2016, the Plenary decided to adopt the following non-legally binding working definition of antisemitism:

Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.

Check how this definition is applied with examples from the conference

For the record, Trump is a Presbyterian. His ancestors were Lutheran on his paternal grandfather’s side in Germany and Presbyterian on his mother’s side in Scotland. His parents married in a Presbyterian church in Manhattan in 1936.

His daughter, Ivana Marie “Ivanka” Kushner, converted to Judaism prior to her marriage to Jared Corey Kushner, a real estate investor, who took over his father’s business.

On Saturday the NY Times published another antisemitic cartoon, despite all the vaunted controls and apology.

 

This cartoon shows Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu wearing a robe and holding up the Ten Commandments tablet with a Star of David on it. Netanyahu is depicted as blind, holding a selfie stick, taking a picture of himself.

Another “lone wolf” antisemite at the New York Times Syndicate, or is the cast and crew united in a hate campaign?

NYT finally suspended publication of all future syndicated political cartoons in its international print edition, the newspaper’s spokeswoman Eileen Murphy confirmed late Monday.

No word yet if anyone has been fired for incompetence.

Center for Constitutional Rights is fighting for all U. S. border jumpers, but hates Israel, an immigrant nation

London-born U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar yesterday (11/20/2018) barred the United States from refusing asylum to immigrants who crossed the southern border illegally. That restraining order upends a proclamation on Nov. 9.

Judge Tigar

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) instituted the suit in San Francisco, claiming that asylum rights superseded laws against illegal entry into this country.

If only the CCR was so generous to legal immigrants, including survivors of Nazi concentration camps.

At the same time CCR is fighting for Central Americans to come here without permission, this 501c3 tax-exempt organization is brutally attacking Israel in courts, colleges and Congress.

Iran hates Jews. Germans killed millions of Jews. Surely this is the business agreement made in Hell.

The controversies over U.S. Civil War statues of Confederate leaders and plans to refashion the Jefferson and Washington memorials to reflect ownership of slaves, remind me of how soon some folks forget and how some never do.

president-martin-van-buren
“Big Marty” of his era!

18th century New England, for example, had tens of thousands of slaves – nearly all American Indians, yet native-owned casinos now dot the northeast states, many by rivers and lakes with tribal names on land stolen by broken treaties with our government.

For many reasons, our native residents are not in constant protest, or at least nothing is covered by the mass media. Where are the Trail of Tears protests against Martin Van Buren and Andrew Jackson. A fair poll would show most Americans don’t know, or care, who Martin was, let alone what he did. Jackson is usually remembered for winning the Battle of New Orleans. but few accounts mention he was pilloried for insisting that his White and Black troops receive exactly the same pay and benefits.

Test your skills – where is this new mall located – Dubai, Riyadh, Cairo, Qatar, Tehran, Other?

Video from new mall’s Grand Opening – February 18, 2017

Whom do we thank for the common conclusion that: a mall is a mall is a mall? Gertrude Stein, calcifying roses in her poem, Sacred Emily?   Or Shakespeare’s Juliet: “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”

For husbands everywhere, roses and malls share beauty and thorns. The prickly part of shopping malls is shopping itself – the trek past dozens of pallid, frozen-faced mannequins clad in too expensive cloth, the alligator and leatherette shoes on plastic pyramids, the hats large enough to halt rays of a dwarf star, and aghast everywhere, the gaunt, underpaid college grads, sadly slumped at counters.

While the junior storekeepers may appear grim, attending a new mall opening is a session of exuberance by wives, and a test of patience by husbands, who often stand perplexed outside stores, while their spouses cruise aisles inside.

The video above exemplifies the joy of the fairest sex for a new mall. Men also attend, but many secretly believe that nearly all the “new” stores are really old stores with fresh facade lipstick.

Today’s quiz; where is this particular palace of purchasing located? Continue reading “Test your skills – where is this new mall located – Dubai, Riyadh, Cairo, Qatar, Tehran, Other?”

Democrats and human rights – why not cry for Jewish victims of Nazis ignored by Roosevelt?

Democrats crying over the temporary ban on immigration from seven terrorist sanctuaries might feel less entitled to a supposed high ground, when they look at the history of discrimination by the most liberal of our leaders.

William Shirer first exposed the Nazis’ systematic execution of individuals with physical or mental disabilities in the pages of Life magazine and Reader’s Digest in early 1941 – a program that would serve as a prototype for the the Holocaust.

ww2-holocaust-polandIn June 1942, word reached this country that the Nazis were planning to kill all the European Jews. A report smuggled from Poland to London described in detail the killing centers at Chelmno, Poland and use of gas vans. Estimates were that 700,000 people had already been killed.

Between 1933 and 1945 – during the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt – only 11,000 Jews were permitted on average each year to enter the United States. That number was just 10% of those allowed under law, even though many hundreds of thousands were fleeing the Nazi hate machine..

For example, in 1939 the United States refused to allow 20,000 Jewish children to enter as refugees. The wife of the U.S. Commissioner of Immigration explained why at a cocktail party:

“20,000 children would all too soon grow up to be 20,000 ugly adults.”

To avoid admitting Jews, Democrats worked in vain to persuade Latin American countries and Great Britain to admit Jewish refugees. Continue reading “Democrats and human rights – why not cry for Jewish victims of Nazis ignored by Roosevelt?”

Video proves John Forbes Kerry lied about Israel hampering Palestinians’ freedom of movement

When Secretary of State John Forbes Kerry sticks out his already protruding chin, you know he really means business, even if that business happens to be telling a lie.

kerryfondaIn his Dec. 28, 2016 speech that would have been hailed by the original Pinocchio, Kerry ripped into Israel, deploring their settlements and detesting their presence in that part of original Israel, now called the West Bank. (In 1949 Jordan it was a crime to call that area “Palestine“; Arabs maintained instead that it was a part of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.)

Kerry also noted that he had passed by “military checkpoints (in the West Bank) that can make even the most routine daily trips to work or school an ordeal” – delaying workers and travelers for hours every day.

While John Forbes is no expert on travel in the West Bank, Ami Horowitz has earned the title of On Site Expert. A New York-based documentary filmmaker, Horowitz decided to test for himself whether it takes West Bank Arabs hours to travel from place to place because of Israeli roadblocks.

In an interview with Israeli media outlets last week, Horowitz explained how he tested the checkpoint humiliation and delays of Arabs east of the Jordan River. Continue reading “Video proves John Forbes Kerry lied about Israel hampering Palestinians’ freedom of movement”
