New York Times Crossword Cartoons


New York – The New York Times reported on Monday that it had abandoned the publication of political cartoons in its international version after a sensation sparked by the publication of cartoons deemed anti-Semitic.

The newspaper said it had been looking for a year to "harmonize" the international version with the American version, which abandoned the political cartoons for several years. She pointed out that it intends to implement this plan from July 1.

At the end of April, the publication of comics in the international version, representing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump, sparked an uproar that transcended the Jewish community.

The Israeli prime minister appears in the cartoon as a guide dog, wearing a Star of David necklace, while the US president, who appears to be blind and wears a hood, is holding him. The newspaper apologized, but eventually went further because the controversy did not stop.

The director of the publication, Arthur Greg Salzberger, launched a disciplinary action against the official of the international version, who chose to publish the cartoons of the painter Antonio Moreira Antones. He also decided to stop using caricatures from an outside company, as is the case with the controversial cartoon.

For his part, Patrick Shabat said in a commentary posted on his website, one of the famous New York Times artists, that the decision announced Monday is directly related to this issue.

"All these years of work remain incomplete because of a single painting that I did not have and should never have been published in the best newspaper in the world," said the painter who has collaborated with the daily newspaper for more than 20 years.

"In recent years, some of the best cartoonists in the press have lost their jobs because their publishers have found them very critical of Donald Trump."

"Perhaps we should start to feel anxious (…) and rebel," young women wrote. "Cartoonists in the press were born with democracy, and when freedoms are threatened, they are also threatened."

New York Times editorialist James Pint wrote in a tweeter on Twitter that the paper wanted to continue working with Patrick Youngs in the future and with his famous painter, Kim Kim Song, but new versions.
