The Jerusalem Post has defended its decision last week to fire cartoonist Avi Katz, saying his caricature showing a group of Israeli politicians as pigs “blatantly crossed” the newspaper group’s ethical and editorial standards.
Katz was fired after his cartoon in the Jerusalem Post’s biweekly magazine, The Jerusalem Report, depicted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and members of his governing coalition as pigs.
