The New York Times made global headlines over the weekend after they published a “vicious” anti-Semitic cartoon depicting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a dog being led by a blind Donald Trump.
“Condemnations of The New York Times increased over the weekend after the paper’s international edition published an antisemitic cartoon. The offensive image was of a blind US President Donald Trump wearing a yarmulke, being walked by a dog with the face of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and wearing a Star of David collar,” reports the Jerusalem Post.
“Even if unintentional, the Left has normalized antisemitism under the guise of criticizing US-Israel foreign policy,” said Rep. Dan Crenshaw over the weekend.
Even if unintentional, the left has normalized anti-semitism under the guise of criticizing US-Israel foreign policy. It is radicalizing people.

“Absolutely disgraceful and classless antisemitic pic,” tweeted Congressman Lee Zeldin.
The Times apologized for the hateful cartoon days later; vowing to get to the bottom of the anti-Semitic publication.
