Opposition leader Yair Lapid slams a Haredi news outlet for running a caricature of him as a pig grasping a pile of money.

The ultra-Orthodox news site B’Hadrei Haredim published a cartoon showing Lapid with the features of a pig while counting a pile of money next to a sign that reads “Protest… not important about what.”

“This is how antisemites drew Jews for generations,” Lapid tweets. “I am trying to think what would happen if images of Haredi leaders as pigs who only care about money were published — imagine the outcry, the victimhood.”
