1. Flogging a dead horse
zznhl   (01.28.13)
What do you expect from a country with rife intrinsic antisemitism in all the levels of society, and now with the imported Islamic antisemitism?
2. You should see the centre of any UK city
3. Response to #1
Joe Mevorah ,   Lincoln, U.S.A.   (01.28.13)
You are correct. British anti-semitism has roots which began with expulsion of Jews going back to the 13th century. Some things are constant.
4. This coming from a UK paper...
Edwin ,   Canada   (01.28.13) ironic. It was they who were the instigators of this precise problem by unilaterally giving away the disputed lands that had been deeded to Israel by the League of Nations.
5. Looks like anti-Semitism is alive-and-well in Europe!!!
Taz Man ,   USA   (01.28.13)
6. Just another brick in the wall!
Yael Schlichting ,   currently Munich   (01.28.13)
We must view the development in Europe just like the building of this wall. This cartoon is just another brick in the European anti-semitic wall!
7. #1 You know nothing
Sarah B ,   Tel Aviv/London   (01.28.13)
Rivlin has written a letter to John bercow, speaker of the House of Commons, not completely sure but one of the most powerful people in the country certainly in the top ten in the pecking order, oh, and jewish. So just how does that square with your comment? Exactly a stupid comment about a subject you know nothing about.
8. In Israel 20%
Sarah B ,   Tel Aviv/London   (01.28.13)
of the population are muslin. In the United Kingdom the percentage of moslems in the population is 3% Want to try again?
9. Sunday Times cartoon
Israeli cartoonist should retaliate and make some nasty cartoon against the double faces Brits, and then we will see how these Brits will react. Jews must fight back !!!!!!!!
10. What to do ?
Istvan ,   BUDAPEST HUNGARY   (01.28.13)
First sue a file at british court. Then to explain them carefully that arabs murdered much more than a thousand israelis, in the period without wall. After the building of the wall this number dropped to zero. The cartoonist misses the facts with his sick phantasy.
11. Demonising the Jews
Norbus ,   Jerusalem   (01.28.13)
I am amazed we do not see this kind of frenzied hatred of Jews as the conditioning to accept a second Holocaust Not enough of us have cottoned on to this reality and I commend Rivlin for making the point
12. UK - they hate themselves
SteveR ,   Dallas USA   (01.28.13)
Who cares what anyone in the press in the UK has to say? They hate their own country, why do you think they would have any kind of fair opinion of Israel? They project their own feelings of guilt over their Empire on to you. Their bizarre inadequacies need to be dealt with by a psychiatrist, not by a foreign office official.
13. There's nothing for free
Gregg ,   Umbria, Italy   (01.28.13)
What about antismetism in Israel? After all Arabs are Semites too
14. #7 Sarah. Have you never heard the term "token"?
Chaim ,   Israel   (01.28.13)
#7 Sarah. You berate others but you are the foolish one. Have you never heard the term "token"? Almost every Anti-Jewish entity has a token Jew here and there. Self hating Jewish leftists are particularly good at being tokens.
Israeli Israeli ,   Israel   (01.28.13)
Yes Jews must fight back. We can make fun of the Brits
16. So it is "freedom of speech" to
maria ,   USA   (01.28.13)
depict Mohamad as a terrorist but a cartoon with Netahyahu and his known policies against Palestinians is anti-semitic? By the way, the cartoon is about Netahyahu not Israel
17. #7, Just stay in London, your services are needed
Jake   (01.28.13)
as a fig leaf by antisemites. You aren't from Tel Aviv and everyone knows it.
18. So now
Paul ,   South Africa   (01.28.13)
According to the hate mongers, they claim the Jews own all the news media outlets - so please do explain. Bunch of hypocritical a-holes.
19. #7
zznhl   (01.28.13)
You are so rude! After being born and bred in the UK and having worked in the civil service I know only too well what I am talking about. Its people like you who naively believe what cynical politicians spout that enable this type of hateful racism to occur.
20. To Joe at #3
Arn ,   Yehud, Israel   (01.28.13)
Why the 13th century and not the 11th? Look up Saint Little Hugh of London for the 1st blood libel. You will find that not much has changed.
21. #8 YOU try again, UK Moslem population is over 6%
Jake   (01.28.13)
Not counting illegals. And they are growing in numbers, while white Christian population is shrinking. In Israel Moslems are 16% of the population (not 20%).
22. #16 Netanyahu is the elected PM of Israel
Jake   (01.28.13)
Depicting him using motifs of the medieval blood libels is quintessential, pure, and classical antisemtism. Btw who resorted to terrorism, riots, and threats when Muhammad was depicted as a terrorist in a cartoon?
23. please
Robert ,   Chicago   (01.28.13)
spare your crocodile tears, if you don't want your PM to be depicted in a monstrous light then elect one that isn't a monster to begin with.
24. the united kingdom is very sick
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (01.28.13)
there are too many people in the uk, including in the highest echelons, who are lacking morals and historical perspective. this was true even in churchill's england.
25. @13: Not According to Arabs
emanon ,   USA   (01.28.13)
Arabs want no part of our heritage. They make that quite plain every chance they get.
26. It is really funny...
James ,   Dallas   (01.28.13)
...aren't the Arabs mad that they are depicted as so helpless...I mean where is the suicide vest in the cartoon?
27. # 12
Birdi ,   Israel   (01.28.13)
What do you expect, London & all the major cities have already been bought by the muslims. Try taking a walk down Oxford Street, Park Lane, Hyde Park etc, where the spoken language you will hear is Arabic!! There are more mosques than synagogues.
28. The UK is Hamastan
zad   (01.28.13)
The UN should probe the secret collaboration between the UK and Iran and all other terrosrist groups. Enough of antisemitism from these bigots who accupy Gibraltar, Northen, Ireland, Scotland, Flaklands Islands...London is becoming Tehran. Hands off Israel you hateful people!
29. Here is a subject for this hateful cartoonist:
Your brethren executing Indians by tying them up to a canon's end during the years before 1947. Or, your good fathers and grandfathers executing Jews in Palestine. Do you want more subjects? Then, look at your "Jew loving" Moslems in your own garden.
30. Cartoon.
Bhuiyan ,   UK   (01.28.13)
The cartoon was appropriately appropriate. Anti-semitism has been loosing its appeal; it's almost an expired idea because of its inappropriate application. Complaining to Bercow!..... Who cares. Israel can't seduce the world by its crying baby attitude, lately it has become a naughty baby; these are mild punishment from your big brothers. Well you must have known Britain doesn't interfere in its media freedom even when it goes against British interest . So don't waste your time, get used to it, your PM deserve it.
