Revised NY Times cancels cartoons after many anti-Semitic scandals
The International New York times cancels political cartoons after a anti-semitic cartoon featuring Benjamin Netanyahu. The cartoon featured Netanyahu as a dog wearing a Star of David collar and leading a sightless U.S. President Donald Trump — who was wearing a Jewish skullcap.
The New York Times spent the weekend a few weeks ago reeling from publishing an antisemitic cartoon. Finally today they apologized and like the cowards they are blamed a lone editor.
After apologizing over the weekend for its anti semitic of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Trump, The New York Times was criticized again Monday over yet another caricature of Netanyahu.
Dan Senor, a former Pentagon aide and advisor to Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, called out the “paper of record” for printing another anti-Netanyahu cartoon, this time depicting him as a blind Moses-like figure holding a tablet with the Israeli flag on it instead of the Ten Commandments.
Wait…the @nytimes featured ANOTHER Netanyahu cartoon? This one AFTER the Thursday cartoon depicting Netanyahu as a dog? Am I reading this right? Is the Times obsessed with Israel’s prime minister? pic.twitter.com/r1KsSaYWtw

Dan Senor went to Twitter to announce that the insensitive New York Times has produced another anti-Semitic cartoon. The first cartoon might have just been a horrible error of judgement. But the second one coming today after an anti-Semitic shooter opened fire on the Chabad of Poway synagogue killing one and injuring several.
After the last day of Passover after another synagogue shooting the New York Times produces another anti-Semitic cartoon. This paper is a certified rag.
The New York Times has apologized for the terrible Anti-Semitic Cartoon, but they haven’t apologized to me for this or all of the Fake and Corrupt news they print on a daily basis. They have reached the lowest level of “journalism,” and certainly a low point in @nytimes history!

President Trump has been highly critical of The New York Times and spoke out on Twitter today on the first cartoon.
“The New York Times has apologized for the terrible Anti-Semitic Cartoon, but they haven’t apologized to me for this or all of the Fake and Corrupt news they print on a daily basis. They have reached the lowest of ‘journalism,” and certainly a low point in @nytimes history!”
The New York Times offered a second apology Sunday over the cartoon of President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu which had been criticized.
“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,” the opinion section tweeted Sunday.
“Such imagery is always dangerous, and at a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise worldwide, it’s all the more unacceptable,” continued the apology, which was widely shared on Twitter.
No word yet from the Times over their latest anti-Semitic cartoon. One could only hope they don’t publish yet another one today.
