Georgia, USA, based Arab community newspaper An Nour has apologised after publishing an antisemitic joke.

The newspaper posted an oft-repeated joke about a Jewish boy asking his father for money as his father repeatedly lowers the amount as he repeats it. The joke plays upon antisemitic stereotypes of Jews being miserly.

Printing such a joke demonstrates very poor judgement, and may indicate the existence of underlying antisemitic attitudes.

Habib Osta, the paper’s manager, apologised, saying “please convey our message to the Jewish community that we didn’t intend to be offensive and we apologize if we did”.
