Oliphant cartoon draws outrage

Several Jewish groups have objected to a recent cartoon by Pulitzer Prize winner Pat Oliphant that shows a headless soldier pushing a fanged Star of David towards a small woman labeled Gaza.

I thought it was interesting that when there were controversial cartoons depicting Muhammed that offended Muslims, most media chose not to re-run the cartoons along with news stories about reaction. However, it was pretty easy to find a copy of the Oliphant cartoon in stories about reaction.
