‘Funny’ Anti-Gaddafi Cartoons Reveal Rebel Racism, Anti-Semitism

Posted by John Rosenthal

In late February, back at the outset of the eastern Libyan rebellion against the rule of Muammar al-Gaddafi, I pointed to visual evidence of anti-Semitism and/or “anti-Zionism” among the protestors who provided the initial face of the rebellion vis-à-vis the outside world. In the meanwhile, much more visual evidence is available. Numerous Western media outlets [...]

Democracy or Jew-Hatred? The Libyan Edition

But images in the flickr streams of amateur local photographers are even more outrageous and unambiguous. For more evidence from both sources, [...]

Anti-Semitic Imagery at Egypt Protests Draws Yawns from Western Media
