German newspaper apologizes for caricature of Netanyahu

A German newspaper apologized on Wednesday for publishing a caricature of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu dressed as Eurovision winner Netta Barzilai and holding a rock with a Star of David on it, i24news reports.

The Munich-based Süddeutsche Zeitung, one of Germany’s top dailies with a circulation of 1.1 million readers, printed the cartoon on Tuesday, three days after Barzilai won the Eurovision Song Contest and in the midst of the protests on the Gaza border for which Israel was criticized.
