NYT pulls anti-Semitic cartoon showing Netanyahu as Trump's dog
The New York Times has apologised for a cartoon that appeared in the newspaper's international edition on Thursday after receiving complaints it was "anti-Semitic".
The cartoon showed Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu as a dog wearing a Star of David collar and leading a blind and skullcap-wearing US President Donald Trump.
The outlet said the image "included anti-Semitic tropes."
A tweet from the New York Times Opinion account Saturday said the image "was offensive, and it was an error in judgment to publish it."
The cartoon was criticised in Israel media and Trump's son Donald Trump Jr called it "disgusting".
Trump has shifted US policy sharply in Israel's favour since taking office, most notably by recognising the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
Last month, Trump recognised Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights - land it seized from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed - a move never recognised by the international community.
Netanyahu has said wants to build a new settlement on the Golan Heights - and to name it after Trump.
