Scarfe sorry over 'unfortunate' timing of Sunday Times Netanyahu cartoon

By Jennifer Lipman, January 29, 2013

Cartoonist Gerald Scarfe has issued an explanation following the outcry over his drawing of Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu in this week's Sunday Times.

Mr Scarfe, who on Monday told the Jewish Chronicle that he had not been aware that the offending image would be published on Holocaust Memorial Day, denied accusations of antisemitism but apologised "for the very unfortunate timing".
