    Anyone noticed the cartoon has already been taken down? Falk claims his 80-year-old eyes took the kippah for a helmet, and that's also the way it looked to me until the resemblance to a kippah was pointed out. It could also be interpreted as a Kufi cap, worn in parts of Africa by members of all three Abrahamic faiths, or a taqiya, or Islamic cap. Those are not serious suggestions, but if someone was a Muslim, and sensitive, what might that person see? Bottom line: the cartoon sends a message to people who are anti-Semitic, who will get the message right away, and to Jews, whose eyes are sensitized. The cartoon is hateful, but let's not spend too much time bashing Richard Falk.
