Newsline: Israeli embassy in Norway protests against cartoons

The Israeli embassy in Norway has protested against the decision of a Norwegain newspaper to publish a comic strip that compared Israel to Nazi Germany and North Korea, as well as calling Israelis “murderers.” The newspaper’s editor has refused to apologize, stating that it was “only a cartoon” and that the Israeli embassy was overreacting, according to Israeli news site Ynet. The cartoon, recently published in Dagbladet, shows the woman holding an orange and saying: “These oranges are from Israel. You are supporting murderers.”
