Stars and Tripe Forever

Guardian2This image (not online) accompanying Jonathan Steele's latest column appeared in The Guardian's print edition. Stephen Pollard's reaction doesn't mince words:

The inference - not so much as inference as a statement screamed at high volume - is that Israel runs the US. The image is about as classic an anti-semitic trope as exists . . . .

The Guardian needs to take a careful look at its editorial policy, given the provenance and meaning of this sort of image. Unless, that is, it is intending to take its inspiration from Der Sturmer.
