Lets see here. A painting on a building wall owned by a Muslim, of Jewish bankers fumbling with money on a Monopoly game board resting on the backs of the down and trodden they’re supposedly oppressing? (Sarc/on) Antisemitism, what antisemitism? (Sarc/off).
Mear One, or Kalen Ockerman, is an artist working out of L.A., he’s commonly referred to as the “Michelangelo of street graffiti”. He paints up a wall commissioned by a Muslim in a predominantly Muslim area, that reinforces ancient antisemitic stereotypes of “the evil money grubbing Jew”, then claims ignorance over any interpreted antisemitism.

Local councillor and long-term resident Peter Golds has urged the police to pursue the inflammatory artist under race hate laws.
He said: ‘When I saw the mural I was shocked. It’s horribly similar to the propaganda used by the Third Reich in Nazi Germany.
‘The money hoarding and hooked-nosed men is classic Nazi.
