Israel's Netanyahu slams global rise in anti-Semitism

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday denounced a rise in anti-Semitism around the world, at a ceremony on the eve of Holocaust Remembrance Day. “The extreme left and the extreme right (around the world) agree on only one thing: their hatred of the Jews,” Netanyahu said at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem. Netanyahu said anti-Semitism was also found in a New York Times cartoon depicting him as a guide dog wearing a Star of David collar and leading a blind US President Donald Trump donning a kippah, or Jewish skullcap.
