Israeli criticism will not be tolerated,even cartoons are out of bounds?

So now we have an Australian(The Sydney Morning Herald)  newspaper withdrawing a cartoon because Jewish leaders oppose it yet we have seen hundreds of cartoons over the years depicting Palestinians in similar cartoons and we heard not a murmur from any quarter.

Why I wonder does one cartoon deserve criticism and all the others deserve none.

It seems as if the Jewish lobby is all powerful and any criticism is obeyed immediately by the worlds press, do they really have that much political and monetary clout.

The present crisis in Gaza is a case in point, even reports from the UN telling Israel of the location of schools and warning given to the Israeli's are treated by Israel with contempt, not to be believed.

As for the worlds press, not one has treated the killing of so many children properly.

Israel has almost used up all the goodwill we have towards them after the Holocaust , their recent over the top actions are not winning any new hearts to the cause.

Imagine the coverage if these were Israeli children that were killed, there would be world uproar.

Yet they are all children, why is one life worth so little compared to another, children don't decide where they are to be born.

I don't condone the behaviour of Hamas in any way but also I can't condone the use of indisciminate heavy weapons in such built up areas.

Its about time we saw totally even reporting, I'll make an exception of the Guardian because I would like to believe they would not kowtow to pressure so easily.

The cartoon in question showed an elderly man, with a large nose, sitting alone, with a remote control device in his hand, overseeing explosions in Gaza. The armchair in which he was sitting was emblazoned with the Star of David, and the man was wearing a kippah, a religious skullcap.

There's an old saying sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me(this apparently does not apply to Israeli's)
