Was Rupert Murdoch right to apologise for Gerald Scarfe's cartoon in the Sunday Times?


The Sunday Times has received complaints of anti-Semitism after a cartoon was published appearing to depict Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu building a brick wall containing the blood and limbs of Palestinians.

Scarfe told the Jewish Chronicle that he had not been aware it was Holocaust Memorial Day and “very much regrets” the timing of the cartoon.

Rupert Murdoch tweeted an apology reading:

“Gerald Scarfe has never reflected the opinions of the Sunday Times. Nevertheless, we owe major apology for grotesque, offensive cartoon.”
