Cartoon Controversy


I always love it when those really offensive political cartoons come out - and we get to prove that however outrageous we might find them, we can act like human beings and not riot over them. From JPost:
Invoking a scene from the film Schindler's List, one of Norway's largest newspapers recently published a political cartoon comparing Prime Minster Ehud Olmert to the infamous commander of a Nazi death camp who indiscriminately murdered Jews by firing at them at random from his balcony.

The caricature by political cartoonist Finn Graff appeared on July 10 in the Oslo daily Dagbladet. It has prompted outrage among the country's small Jewish community and led the Simon Weisenthal Center to submit a protest to the Norwegian government.

In the cartoon, Olmert is likened to SS Major Amon Goeth, the infamous commandant of the Plaszow death camp outside of Krakow, Poland, who was convicted of mass murder in 1946 and hanged for his crimes.

While in charge of Plaszow, Goeth would go out to the balcony on his villa, and engage in target practice by aiming his telescopic rifle and firing at random at Jews imprisoned there, often killing them.

Sweet.

Yes, we are less barbaric than the Islamofascists, who would be burning Norweigan embassies the world over by now.

Sometimes I wish we were more barbaric. Maybe people would be afraid of us.

Someone recently posted this comment: "Sometimes I wish we were more barbaric. Maybe people would be afraid of us."

As a Jew, I'd like to raise the rhetorical question: How consistent is that suggestion with the essence of Judaism?
