ADL Letter to Kleine Zeitung (Austria)

Anti-Defamation League


Letters to the Editor

Kleine Zeitung, Austria

 
     May 20, 2004

To the Editor:

We are outraged by the blatantly anti-Semitic cartoon by
Petar Pismestrovic ("Past and Present" May 19).

 

 

In comparing a Nazi and an Israeli soldier, the cartoons constructs an analogy between the deliberate Nazi policy to annihilate the Jews of Europe, and accidental Palestinian casualties as a result of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Whatever one's view of Israeli policies, this comparison is inappropriate and offensive.  The cartoon is particularly offensive coming from an Austrian newspaper considering
Austria's past.

 

 


  Sincerely,

Abraham H. Foxman
National Director
