Orgy of anti-semitic cartoons in Arab media lately

The ADL has compiled a list of blatant anti-semitic cartoons from the Arab world in the wake of Reuters' mistranslating Matan Vilnai as threatening a "holocaust."

While the "Zionism=Nazi" imagery is nothing new in the Arab press, they have turned it way up recently, as the ADL report shows.

Of course, Palestinian Arabs don't have to look far for their own, very real, historic connections to Nazis. Nazis wooed Islamists to get them on their side, Nazis armed Arab terrorists in Palestine before World War II, Nazis tried, semi-successfully, to work with them during WWII, the biggest Palestinian Arab leader helped in the genocide of Jews, Arabs drafted Nazis to help fight Jews after WWII, today's Palestinian "moderates" consciously imitate Nazi symbolism, and even today neo-Nazis explicitly support Islamic terror against Israel.

My First Rule of Arab Projection is alive and well.
