Good-gosh! Really?

Sure, the date of publication of the cartoon wasn't a bright idea, but antisemitic?

Bit of an extreme one. Should have thought about the politics of it a bit more.

Scarfe is just telling the truth, but of course any critical views on their regime or actions are going to be labeled as "antisemitic" by the israelites, their goverment, and pro-israel people in general. Is the magical shield they used to deflect any kind of criticism: we are jews! Remember the holocaust! We are nothing but poor little helpless victims!

By the way before the air raid this used to be a Palestinian family's home, four children died in it, ages 7, 6, 4 and 2.

70 more civilians were killed on the days before.
