Normally IAM does not report on anti-Semitic cartoons which populate the Internet along with anti-Semitic diatribes and conspiracy theories.
The cartoon featured below, however, merits attention as it was drawn by Michah Leshem, a professor at Haifa University. Leshem drew the cartoon to illustrate a point he made in English as well as in an Italian language on a pro-Palestinian website.
Of course, as a rank and file citizen, Leshem has the right to produce a most egregious anti Semitic piece that would have found a place of pride in Nazi-era propaganda.
The question is whether Leshem, a professor at a public university supported by taxpayers should engage in this type of behavior. Academics are expected to serve as role models in and out of a classroom. By any measure, Leshem does not live up to such expectations.
