Racism, Politics, Palestinians and Condoleezza Rice

African American Poltical Pundit says: The attacks on the Bush administration's Middle East policies in the Arab press are getting really ugly. And really personal. They include personal insults and racial slurs aimed at Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. One of the cartoons depict her pregnant with an armed monkey. Under the Cartoon it reads, "Rice speaks about the birth of a new Middle East," the cartoon's caption reads, referring to the secretary's recent remarks about the "birth pangs" of the region. The image, as well as words such as "raven" and "black spinster" to describe Miss Rice, appeared in Palestinian newspapers. Enter, Members of the black leadership network Project 21 , a group of conservative Republicans who are rightfully condemning the racist depictions of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. While sparing no criticism of these depictions, Project 21 members point out that such despicable criticism of Secretary Rice on the part of the Arab press might not have come so easy had she not already been the target of similar racial attacks by American cartoonists and pundits.

Thats just repulsive. The Italian one with the monkey baby especially. After reading about European racism in soccer I guess it shouldn't come as any surprise.
