Switzerland: Young Socialists post 'Jewish lobby' cartoon

JUSO (Young Socialists Switzerland) is a youth organization connected to the Social Democratic Party of Switzerland.

Recently they posted the antisemitic cartoon above on their Facebook page.   It shows President and Commerce Minister Johann Schneider-Ammann feeding a fat Jewish man, who has a large nose and sidelocks.   Schneider-Ammann says ".. and a spoon for... the international financial lobby".  The hungry child next to him gets nothing.

JUSO removed the cartoon and published a statement saying that they understood that the cartoon could be interpreted in an antisemitic way and that this in no way reflects on their basic values.   They apologize without reservation and assure everybody that there were no antisemitic intentions behind it.
