I found there to be a degree of separation between the actual child and the point it was trying to make. I placed it in that larger context, and in my admittedly perverse sense of humor, found it funny.
And having grown up as a member of the "tribe", I do find many jokes about the "tribe" funny. Often because there is usually a grain or two of truth in them. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <awoelflebater@...> wrote : ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <steve.sundur@...> wrote : Actually, it was the Israeli Anti Semitic Cartoon Contest.

I go by my gut sometimes and my gut didn't like that particular cartoon of Hebdo's. In fact, I am positive there is not a mother or father on the planet who would have found it funny or satirically apropos if that child was their own. Is that lack of objectivity on their part? Maybe. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <steve.sundur@...> wrote : I admit, I thought it was brilliant.
