Ynetnews reports: Norway’s fourth-largest newspaper has recently published a caricature depicting supporters of circumcision for Jews and Muslims as pedophiles.

The offensive caricature (see below) appeared in The Dagbladet, the second largest tabloid in the country that has a circulation of approximately 75,000 copies a day.
