The New York Times The international edition ran from the apparently blind US President Donald Trump, who had a yarmulke led by a dog with David's star collar and the face of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on 25 April.

The cartoon was part of its opinion section and appeared on the Thomas Friedman column on immigration.

Many people condemned the cartoon over the weekend. It appeared in the April 25 issue, but in Israel was available for the Passover, which coincided with the holiday and the Shabbat, two days when many observer Jews were not active online.

“Another disgusting anti-Semitic tropical disgust that was celebrated in the NY Times. The NY Times tells the world that anti-Semitism is real, here and kind, ”wrote philanthropist Adam Milstein.

Imam Mohamad Tawhidi condemned it in social media, saying it resembles anti-Semitic Islamic texts that compare Jews and dogs. Others noted that although it was online, it was removed until Saturday afternoon. In the New York era, the Twitter account contained an editor's note stating that the cartoon "contained anti-Semitic tricks".

Times they admitted that the image was "offensive and it was a mistake in the judgment to publish it." They said it had been deleted online ever since.
