1. Kind of funny
Berk ,   Amsterdam, Holland   (01.13.13)
I do not consider them offending, but rather a form a democracy. I am now waiting for cartoons about Ahmadinejad, Assad, King Abdullah etc.
2. Ok, now it's only fair if we have some cartoons on Mohamad
Simon ,   Sydney, Australia   (01.13.13)
3. nice to know they were just as delusional in 67
4. only point proven is that jewhatred is in their dna
daniel ,   beer sheva   (01.13.13)
as well as it is in their european sponsors and cheerleaders
5. These cartoons are nothing
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (01.13.13)
compared with those in hungarian neo nazi websites. The only solution : start a cyber war and hack them with drawings of excellent israeli caricatures, like Arutz Sheva's one. My first tip how to begin. On a world's globe a fat arab sits occupiing the whole . In a tiny corner a meagre israeli, even not enough place to stand. Caption : "ZIONISTS OCCUPY EVERYTHING !"
6. The pen is not mightier
Jacob E ,   Holon, Israel   (01.13.13)
In the arab world, the pen is not mightier than the sword, they've just realized that after 70 years their swords can't beat Israel, so they use pens now. Our swords or pens can beat theirs any day.
7. #3 Yes, and they're baying for another thrashing

8. Nothing changes
Get Real ,   UK   (01.13.13)
Arab cartoonists have been bashing Israel and Jews for years on numerous websites and media outlets.Nothing changes, they just keep updating them as news and new situations arise. #2 Jews respect other religions and tend not to denigrate their beliefs and actually find those anti-Islamic cartoons to be offensive.
9. Unilateral Ceasefire
emanon ,   USA   (01.13.13)
That cartoon would be more accurate if it were an arab tank. Arab version of ceasefire, hudna, usually means "wait a minute. I'm reloading". Terrorstinians have yet to abide by *ANY* ceasefire agreement. They stop on one front and start on another.
10. Israel brings their pitta & chummus on the table
tiki ,   belgium   (01.13.13)
Without Israel they would share the fate of the millions of jobless Arabs. There is nothing 'patriotic about it.
11. Agree with you, Daniel (#4)
Imperator ,   USA/Israel   (01.13.13)
Kol HaKavod, exactly my feelings. We will not see peace, nor will our grandchildren and their grandchildren. Sad, very sad.
12. Cartoons
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.14.13)
So cartoons gently poking fun at Islam are absolutely verboten and worthy of riots and death threats, but it is perfectly acceptable to pen disgusting cartoons concerning Jews and the State of Israel. What does that say about Moslems?
13. Age
R Narz   (01.14.13)
I certainly ain't old enough to have seen Der Sturmer in its original version, but I have seen several summary books of it, showing cartoons. The cartoons depicted here have a very amateurish flavor compared to Der Sturmer; like the difference between a high school newspaper cartoonist and a real paper.
14. One of the best cartoons of all time
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (01.21.13)
was the one with Muhammed and the lighted fuse on his head wrap. Still eloquent with power.
15. Cartoons are the universal language of
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (01.21.13)
the people. More are needed of the Muslims, although, it's hard to laugh at their barbarity, the human rights abuses, murders, rapes, stoning's, 'honor killings' and, that's just the 'good stuff' they live for. They live to die, we die to live. We BUILD they BOMB.
16. Is there a cartoon
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (01.21.13)
pointing the fact that only muslims have their butts as the highest thing pointing to their god? Always seemed odd to me.
17. Maybe we should riot
art ,   jersey city nj USA   (02.23.13)
Maybe it is time for Jews to riot in the streets burn flags and kill people Then maybe we will be taken seriuosly
