Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Would you publish this cartoon?

Well it is not the full version.

This guy
Contest-Initiator Amitai Sandy
started a competition to seek out the best anti-Semitic cartoon.

here are some more.

some more background. here (in German)

If you click here you can see more of the comics.

or even better, go toboomka.org directly.

I could of course put this into the main body of the Diary, but then I would have no material for a tip jar.....

I am wondering if someone finds "The Merchant of Venice"
by Shakespeare a bit anti-semitic (you can judge by the movie too)?

It is anti-semitic because Shakespeare lived at the end of 16 and beginning of  17 century, and anti-semitism was wide spread in England at the time. In Othello too, there are very acerbic remarks for Othello's skin colour and his African origin. Anti-semitism and racism are not modern phenomena, but have always been part of the European history.

Shakespeare's plays give full picture of Elisabethan Britain and the stereotypes that were prevalent at the time.

I think the issue with those Anti-Semitic pictures is again an issue that has to do with freedom of expression and freedom of speech. I don't think the pictures shouldn't be published or something. As long as they don't provoke some organized violent actions against Jews...
