B’nai Brith has asked a Quebec newspaper to remove a political cartoon from its website that appears to have a Star of David drawn on the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa.
However, Canadian Jewish Congress CEO Bernie Farber rejected the idea that Badeaux’s cartoon is anti-Semitic.
“The cartoonist in question is a friend of the Jewish community,” Farber told Shalom Life. “He has, in fact, been part of a program that we sponsored a year or so ago called ‘Cartoons for Peace’ that had cartoonists involved in doing editorial cartoons showing the way for peace in the Middle East. He has spoken extensively at synagogues, [and is] very much a friend of the community.”
I love the addition of the yellow "slippery road" sign - how true!
