It certainly is inflammatory, but I don’t see how it’s denigrating of all Jews. It’s specifically commenting on Israel’s actions in Gaza, and the state’s poor treatment of the people who live there. The Star of David is not just a religious symbol anymore, hasn’t been for decades–it’s clearly not about Judaism.

What do you think?
