The Editor-in-Chief of The Sunday Times will this week meet Jewish community leaders in an effort to repair the fallout from the publication on Sunday of a cartoon accused of using anti-Semitic tropes to attack Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

On Sunday, which was Holocaust Memorial Day, the publication published a highly controversial cartoon depicting the prime minister building a wall with the blood and limbs of screaming Palestinians.

In the cartoon, drawn by Gerald Scarfe’s blood can been seen dripping off Netanyahu’s trowel and seeping through the bricks. The cartoon, and timing of its publication, has caused outrage with accusations that it invoked classical anti-Semitic tropes synonymous with blood libel accusations against Jews.
