Daily Beast Cartoonist Depicts Israeli PM Eating Obama's Limbs
Eli Valley, artist in residence at the far-left, Obama-supporting Jewish Daily Forward has created one of the most anti-Semitic cartoons ever published. Placed at 972mag.com, the radical website dedicated to anti-Israel rhetoric, the cartoon depicts Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu eating Barack Obama’s limbs, then forcing him to give him oral sex, all in the name of Israeli defense.
But Valley’s “art” is hardly confined to radical websites. It’s been published in New York Magazine, The Daily Beast, and Gawker, among others. After this repetition of the blood libel – Jews eating non-Jewish flesh – and a perverse rape fantasy sequence, will these publications continue to run Valley’s work?
In 2003, the British Independent published a similar cartoon featuring then-Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon eating Palestinian babies. The cartoon won an award from the UK Political Cartoon Society--proving that antisemitism is neither original nor discouraged in the mainstream media.
