The Forward's 'Artist in Residence' imagines Obama rape

The Forward newspaper’s chief "artist in residence" has released a cartoon that depicts Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu raping President Obama.

In the cartoon, cartoonist Eli Valley portrays the two leaders alone in space, and depicts Netanyahu forcing himself on the president.

The Forward, which has come under fire from Jewish insiders for shirking its journalistic responsibilities to promote a far left agenda, has decried what it claims are unfair conservative political attacks.

However, it has remained mum thus far regarding Valley’s latest offering.

Valley is also a contributor to a Jewish-themed blog operated by the liberal author Peter Beinart on the Daily Beast's website.
