Korean anti-Semitism

Anti-Semitism isn’t just a European or Islamic phenomenon: East Asia has its fair share, too, with the Protocols of the Elders of Zion enjoying widespread popularity in Japan.

The latest example comes from South Korea. Joe Mondello has posted and translated pages from the Korean comic book series Monnara Iunnara, which begins as anti-US propaganda, but quickly descends into vicious Jew-hatred. That reminded me of something I read years ago about the bizarre popularity of Nazi-themed bars in South Korea.

It’s a strange world in which we live, and often not in a good way.
