SIMON WIESENTHAL CENTER ISSUES DEMAND FOR NORWEGIAN POLITICAL LEADERS TO DENOUNCE NEWSPAPER DAGBLADET’S ANTISEMITIC CARTOON………

 

UPDATE: JTA:

Norwegian daily prints cartoon of gory circumcision, child abuse

Manfred Gerstenfeld, a scholar of anti-Semitism and former chairman of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, said the caricature “cannot be viewed separately from centuries of libels in Christian circles that try to establish a link between the ritual abuse of blood and the Jewish faith.”
But in an email sent to MIFF, a Norwegian pro-Israel organization, Dagbladet cartoon artist Tomas Drefvelin said he did not mean to draw Jews in his caricature, which he meant “not as criticism of either a specific religion or a nation [but] as a general criticism of religions,” Drefvelin wrote.
He added: “I gave the people in the picture hats, and the man a beard, because this gives them a more religious character … Jew-hatred is reprehensible.  I would never draw to create hatred of a people, or against individuals.”
Ervin Kohn, the president of Norway’s Jewish community, told JTA that in Norway, “it is not uncommon to compare brit milah with cutting off limbs and calling it mutilation. This is a form of lying, propaganda.”

” The Simon Wiesenthal Center denounces the blood libel cartoon published in Dagbladet, so virulently anti-Semitic it would make Hitler and Himmler weep tears of joy,” said rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish Human Rights NGO,  who is currently attending the Global Forum on Antisemitism in Jerusalem.  “We call upon Norway’s leaders to denounce this incitement to hate and especially urge the Ombudsman for Children’s Rights to denounce this outrageous denigration of a core Jewish rite dating back to the biblical times of Abraham”, Cooper added.

  1. Official Norwegian establishment welcomes all forms of Jew hatred. Cartoonists, comedians, journalists, etc etc etc. No wonder so many Jews were herded on board the Donau to face extermination in Auschwitz. The police, judiciary and the whole establishment is cursed with hate for the Jews.
    Never mind Norway, what happens in Sweden is on its way sooner than you think and will serve you right!

    1. Martin, the most gross thing about all this is, that their contribution to Jew hatred is done under the guise of a false humanitarianism.
