Eli Valley is finishing his first novel. His comics appear monthly in the Forward, and his Web site is www.evcomics.com.
The Forward welcomes reader comments in order to promote thoughtful discussion on issues of importance to the Jewish community. In the interest of maintaining a civil forum, the Forward requires that all commenters be appropriately respectful toward our writers, other commenters and the subjects of the articles. Vigorous debate and reasoned critique are welcome; name-calling and personal invective are not. While we generally do not seek to edit or actively moderate comments, the Forward reserves the right to remove comments for any reason.
"Eli, get over yourself. This is excellent satire."
It makes a point...but it's a rather shallow one.
Excellent satire reflects intellectual insight based on juxtapostions.
The fact is that non-Jewish NFP's rely on the money of Jewish institutions. Much of that money comes from non-practicing Jews. Indeed, Jewish philanthropists give more to non-Jewish institutions than to Jewish ones.
Comparitively, little of the money goes to the parochial programs and events that are being lampooned, here.
So, it's "edgy", and taylored for people with a certain political bent.
But at the same time, it's easily challenged by reality.
Of course, if you dig the partisan humor that passes for satire these days, this really nails it.
Heh! You're a bad boy!
Cartoon series anti-Semitic stereotypes continue; being Jewish does not absolve anti-Semitic behavior.
Eli, get over yourself. This is excellent satire.
This is a great piece of work and hits home. This sould be in other Pro-Jewish journals such as the NYT.
Zer Shayn, Very Nice. This cartoon will be reprinted in every neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic, and Muslim website (excuse me for repeating myself 3 times) by the end of the week.
Look, we know what hypocrisy exists in our community. Money talks. Its the same in every community.
Use a little self-restraint next time. Sometimes you can be a little too smart.
The cartoon shows three things. First, it truthfully illustrates the damning reality that powerful Jews, even ones who do horrendous harm and evil to non-Jews, are protected and honored by the Jewish community, unless, of course, they do harm to their fellow Jews.
Secondly, it shows that there are at least a few Jews who see this evil process and protest it. They are to be commended by Jews and Gentiles alike.
And third, it reveals the fact that there is not a single Gentile in the America or Europe who could publish such a cartoon in the mainstream press without him being attacked as an anti-Semite and without having his career completely destroyed.
I assume the fugitive represents Marc Rich, I know Glencore may have done some horrible stuff in Peru, but did it cut deals with Iran? This is just an honest historical question. There is no doubt that the cartoon is hilarious.
It does hit close to home.
And it probably should hit the other publications and sites.
The G-D of Abraham doesn't refer to us as "the scourge of all of the nations” without merit. Once the dualism of Talmud is granted and lived-out, he has always destroyed us en mass.
Adrian, (I see this thread is long dead) but weren't the Iranian deals what Marc Rich got his famous presidential pardon for?
The holohoax is a k!ke lie, but jooz are in dire need of extermination! Jooz are the maggots of the human race!
Right on! Keep on keeping on Eli! This kind of critisism is the true proof of the possibility for jews to be saved too! Bless ya all. Punks For Jesus in Israel!
It takes a weak mind to equate lack of discussion with "denial".
Yes, all those Germans were lying, their records are fabricated, soldiers who liberated the camps were lying and all the peole liberated from those camps are also lying.
Only the retards, dimbulbs and uneducated slobs of the world are able to figure it out.
