the trick is finding the damn cartoons (which are never linked from the stories)

Berliner Zeitung publishes an anti-Semitic cartoon, thinking it’s from Charlie Hebdo
Ofer Aderet, Haaretz, Jan 15, 2015


The daily Berliner Zeitung in error published an anti-Semitic cartoon on its front page, under the mistaken impression that it was a front page from Charlie Hebdo. In a tribute to the French magazine a day after the massacre at its editorial offices, the Berlin daily published several of Charlie Hebdo’s past cover pages. One of them, however, was a fake, showing a cartoon drawn by the anti-Semitic illustrator Joe le Corbeau. The cartoon showed an orthodox Jew, with a caption saying “1 million rebate out of six, for Palestine.” The word “rebate” is a wordplay suggesting rabbis and rebate in German. People at the Israeli embassy in Berlin noticed the erroneous cartoon and pointed out references that should have alerted the editors at Berliner Zeitung. These include the fact that the name of the magazine on the cover is Charlo instead of Charlie, and the barcode at the bottom of the cartoon indicates 6,000,000, the number of Jewish Holocaust victims, not a real barcode number. Embassy officials also noted that the pineapple that appears next to an orange banner in the cartoon is a reference to a song by the anti-Semitic French comedian Dieudonne, labeled “Shoananas.” The singer’s website boasted of posting this fake tribute. Berliner Zeitung a day later apologized for posting the cartoon.
