The Washington Post’s reporting and editorials on the conflict in Gaza have been generally fair and balanced. Which makes it all the more disappointing that the paper considered this crude cartoon animation to be acceptable on its website:
The implication that Israel is deliberately pummeling Palestinian babies rather than Hamas terrorists is grossly offensive. Indeed the imagery of innocent babies in anti-Israel cartoons is not new.
Cartoons play a significant role in the demonization of Israel.
