The largest city in Switzerland—Zurich—started last week to run in its main train station antisemitic posters, according to critics that sexually depict the European Union bowing to the dictates of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The eleven posters show a woman with an EU logo on her white dress bowed on her knees before Netanyahu and apparently about to kiss his left foot. The words next to Netanyahu’s head read: “We violate international law by stealing land, expulsion and apartheid…Our Joker: Europe’s guilty conscience.”
The sponsor of the advertisement, the Palestinian Solidarity group, calls on the EU and Switzerland to launch “sanctions against Israel.”
The Swiss paper Tages-Anzeiger wrote on Tuesday that the Swiss People’s Party politician Claudio Schmid views the poster as anti-Semitic. Writing on the Swiss website Audiatur Online, the German journalist and expert in modern antisemitism Alex Feuerherdt said the poster’s “symbolism is deeply antisemitic.”
