Yep…that cartoon does depict the Israelis as violent (he’s wearing a cowboy hat, and not a yarmulke, so I don’t think it’s meant to label all Jews, but the Israeli government itself). That said, I can see where one might be offended.


And there are hundreds of similar comics in the Arab media every-time Israel defends itself. Sometimes the hands are dripping with blood, or in this one a sword, in others the Jews have actual fangs and are drinking blood. The allegation is always lusting for blood, one way or another. When used against Israel or Jews it plays into this historic reality, again, whether you realise or not.
