Arab Anti-Israel Cartoonists ‘Pig Out’ on Swine Flu
Arab cartoonists in several countries have seized upon the swine flu epidemic to portray Israel and its leadership as pigs – an animal considered unclean by both Jews and Muslims. The Anti-Defamation League, which combats anti-Semitism and other forms of prejudice, has collected several such cartoons.
The swine flu epidemic, which has spread from Mexico to the United States, Canada, Britain, Spain and New Zealand, also infected a few Israelis. This fact was enough to get some poisonous cartoonists’ quills working in Britain, Jordan, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.
