State Apologizes for ‘Anti-Israel’ Cartoon on Regents Exam

Via the New York Post (HT Empire Report):

The New York State Education Department has apologized for including a political cartoon on its global studies Regents exam that critics charged was anti-Israel propaganda.

The cartoon depicts three fat, armed Israeli soldiers using an overturned table as a shield, with one saying, “I knew this peace table would come in handy someday.”

Students who took the test administered on Jan. 24 were asked, “What is the main idea of the cartoon?”

A state Education Department spokesman initially defended the use of the cartoon when The Post broke the story about the complaints on Jan. 31.
