Holocaust Memorial Day

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day.
Jerusalem Post has an article that discusses ‘Holocaust inversion’ in the media — portrayal of Jews as Nazi-like persecutors of Palestinian Arabs:

The demonization of Jews has historically included accusations of deicide, religious infanticide, blood lust, and – post World War II – Nazi-like behavior. Some present-day cartoons reflect classic 21st-century caricatures of key anti-Semitic motifs.

The cartoons, appearing in mainstream papers in different European countries, also demonstrate how acceptable anti-Semitism has again become in European society.

Read the whole thing. The author ends with a call for greater understanding of the methodology of this phenomenon.
