Who isn't Antisemitic?

Korean-American community leaders plan to launch protest against publisher of popular South Korean comic book containing anti-Semitic images

One comic strip in the book shows a man climbing a hill and then facing a brick wall with a Star of David and stop sign in front. "The final obstacle to success is always a fortress called Jews," a translation says.

Another strip shows a newspaper, magazine, TV and radio with the description: "In a word, American public debate belongs to the Jews, and it's no exaggeration to say that US media are the voice of the Jews."

Yohngsohk Choe, co-chairman of the Korean American Patriotic Action Movement in the USA, said, "I don't have words to describe the outrage I feel."

Sure he is upset, but outraged? I guess I would be also be outraged if I saw an Israeli comic book say something like that against Koreans, but I think he is overdoing it a bit

I am very glad that Koreans in America have the imbibed the values of America, and a bit impressed.

But this is whats shocking

The book, written by South Korean university professor Lee Won-bok, is part of a series called "Distant Countries and Neighboring Countries," which is intended to teach youngsters about other countries. The series has sold more than 10 million copies.

A professor, wrote this in a book meant to educate about the world, oh and its going out to 10,000,000 people
