Munich Prize: No Surprise

Munich is slated to present an award to the allegedly antisemitic cartoonist Dieter Hanitzsch in January. He was fired in May 2018 for stoking hatred of the Jewish state in a Nazi-like way.

Munich-based newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung’s editor-in-chief Wolfgang Kach said the cartoon used “antisemitic cliches” when it showed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dressed similarly to Israeli Eurovision entrant Netta Barzilai, who won the 2018 contest.
