NORWAY – Caricature equates circumcision with pedophilia
YNET – Norway’s fourth-largest newspaper has recently published a caricature depicting supporters of circumcision for Jews and Muslims as pedophiles.
The offensive caricature appeared in The Dagbladet, the second largest tabloid in the country that has a circulation of approximately 75,000 copies a day.
The caricature depicts a man wearing a kippah (skullcap) and a bearded man standing next to him, both holding signs reading ‘Yes to circumcision’ and ‘Religious freedom.’ A third man, wearing a ratty coat, tells them: “I know what you mean. I, too, am told by an invisible man to fiddle with children’s penises.”
The Israeli Embassy in Norway sent a strong condemnation to the newspaper.
The ambassador in Oslo, Rafi Schutz, said: “This is a disgraceful caricature that represents a fanatical religion of false liberalism that shows zero tolerance for opinions and beliefs different from those who believe themselves to be enlightened.”
