Cartoon by Ruben L. Oppenheimer for Get the Trolls Out! Tyson Fury, world heavyweight champion from Britain, was filmed making antisemitic comments in a video posted online earlier this month. In his latest rant, an hour-long clip, he said: “Zionist, Jewish people ... own all the banks, all the papers, all the TV stations”. After sparking outrage, Fury has apologised for his offensive comments. Fury has previously been accused of sexism and homophobia. Last year, many called for him to be dropped from the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year shortlist after a video emerged of the new heavyweight boxing champion making a series of sexist remarks. Our editorial cartoonist Ruben Oppenheimer has drawn this cartoon for Get the Trolls Out!
Cartoon by Ruben Oppenheimer for Get The Trolls OutBradford MP Naz Shah has been suspended from the Labour Party for over a comment she made about Israel in 2014. Among the antisemitic posts that Shah shared on Facebook, one suggested that Israel should be relocated in the United States. Naz Shah profoundly apologised for the posts, which were made before she became an MP. Our editorial cartoonist Ruben Oppenheimer has drawn this cartoon to mock the absurdity of Shah’s claim.
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s press office conceded that there had been a U.S. opposition to the planned statue of Hóman. Orbán strongly objected to this “ill-advised” interference, and said such behavior only hinders progress towards solutions to problems.
