Cartoon by the legendary Gerald Scarfe in London's Sunday Times stirs furor among Jewish groups ( Yawn..).

In Haaretz:

Four reasons why U.K. cartoon of Netanyahu isn't anti-Semitic in any way

"Netanyahu's depiction is grossly offensive and unfair but that is only par for the course for any politician when cartoonist Scarfe is at his drawing-board."

Murdoch owner of the paper apologises for "grotesque" cartoon:

'Gerald Scarfe has never reflected the opinions of the Sunday Times,' Rupert Murdoch tweeted in response to criticism by Jewish groups, who said the drawing was reminiscent of anti-Semitic blood libels.
