You have omitted one of the most foul of the anti-semitic cartoons ever to be published in a British newspaper - this one, by Martin Rowson - for which, I believe, the Guardian published an apology.


In typically acerbic form, His Grace commented "Cranmer considers this cartoon to be a further ‘faith crime’. Whatever the rights or wrongs in the current Middle East crisis - there is no excuse for the British press to resort to material which may incite hatred, and this is clearly designed to do just that. Such a cartoon simply feeds the prejudice that many Muslims already feel towards the Jews and Israel, and it clearly belongs to the era of Nazi propaganda. "

Quite right.

I've taken this copy from Archbishop Cranmer's website.
