what is the problem with this cartoon? Israel is a Jewish state, therefore it is not anti-Semitic to depict the "nation" with a star of David and a Kippah. the real objection is that the cartoonist is making a statement that Israel sits in comfort while Gaza is bombed. But Israel is at war in Gaza. Therefore this is free speech and legitimate political comment. If you ban or apologise for this cartoon in any way then it is no better than when Muslims forced the whole world to apologise and hide the cartoons of Mohammed printed by Jyllands-Postern in Denmark. This is not anti-Semitic in any way. It is critical of Israel in the conflict, but so what? that is what freedom of speech is for. Stop saying everything you disagree with is racist or anti-Semitic or Islamophobic. It's just free speech.
