Portugal: Btsalmo demands firing of mainstream magazine cartoonist after antisemitic cartoon

Portuguese magazine Sábado posted this cartoon by Vasco Gargalo representing the crucifixion on a Jewish Magen David (and not on a Christian cross) of a black controversial politician Joacine Katar Moreira (by the way, her party, Livre, removed its political confidence from Katar Moreira).  Is the magazine Sábado implying that Israel treats its black citizens like this - putting them to death in this vile and cruel way ?  Interestingly, there wasn't a single protest in Portugal with regard to Gargalo's antisemitic drawings.  A quick look at his Twitter account shows his utter detestation and disgust of Israel and its Jewish citizens.

Via Judean Rose:

Btsalmo, a human rights organization based in Israel, has written to the editor of Sabado Magazine, demanding the dismissal of cartoonist Vasco Gargalo for his cartoon of a “Palestinian” Holocaust.

The cartoon depicts Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shoving a PA flag-draped coffin into an oven bearing the infamous slogan from the gates of Auschwitz, Arbeit Macht Frei, “work will set you free.”
