The Israeli embassy has reportedly delivered a letter to the daily's editor in chief, protesting the drawing.

 

The caricature

 

In early July, the Munich-based Süddeutsche Zeitung, a daily newspaper, published a caricature criticizing Germany's military aid to Israel.

 

"Germany presents" the drawing's subheading read, elaborating: "For decades Israel receives arms, sometimes for free. Israel's detractors believe Israel to be a voracious Moloch. Peter Beinart condemns this situation." Beinart is a liberal Jewish professor and journalist known for his critical stance on Israel's treatment of Palestinians.
