Anti-Semitic Cartoons

The furor over the Danish Cartoons has led to a new and Israeli contest to create anti-Semitic cartoons.

It is a healthy thing to be able to laugh at yourself. And it is a timely moment to affirm that other peoples' lies do not, in and of themselves, hurt you.

I found none of the Israeli cartoons as purely spiteful as some of the real thing, but many were funnier.
