Numerous cartoons have appeared recently in the Arab press that portray presumptive U.S. presidential candidates senators Barack Obama and John McCain as lackeys controlled by Israel and by American Jews.
The allegations are in a report released Wednesday in New York by the Anti-Defamation League.
ADL director Abe Foxman said leading media outlets "from Gaza to Ramallah, from Bahrain to Damascus, from Cairo to Riyadh," were printing the cartoons.
"Once again, the Arab media does not miss an opportunity to promote classic anti-Semitic conspiracy theories of Jewish control over Washington, the media and the democratic process," Foxman said.
