These two anti-Semitic cartoons were published by the Syrian newspaper Tishreen on April 22 and May 19 2002. Tishreen’s parent company is owned by the Syrian government.
The cartoons are almost identical, each with a religious Jew standing in place of the Statue of Liberty, which they have overthrown.
Both the cartoons, published within one month of each other, show the deeply held belief in the Arab world that Jews want to take over the world and they especially want control of the U.S. This is a classic anti-Semitic stereotype that was even used by the Nazis and can even be traced back to anti-Semitic cartoons aimed at the Rothschild family in Europe.
