"Yesterday, I posted about how Nick Garland's Daily Telegraph cartoon invoked traditional stereotypes of Jews as cruel abusers of innocent children, whilst sanitising Hezbollah as no worse than a naughty boy prince with only toy weapons.

Yesterday's cartoon on page 29 (Comment) portrayed Israeli military action in Lebanon in the form of a mailed fist with Stars of David as knuckle-dusters.

That was not the intention, and we are sorry if anyone saw it that way.
