Israeli Envoy Asks Belgian News Site To Remove Pandemic Photo Of Ultra-orthodox Jew 1

BRUSSELS (JNS) – Israeli Ambassador to Belgium Emmanuel Nahshon is accusing a major English-language news outlet in Belgium, The Brussels Times, of anti-Semitism, after the paper used an image of an ultra-Orthodox Jew wearing a mask to illustrate a story about global COVID-19 mortality.

“Global death toll tops 1.1 million. Why did you put a picture of an Orthodox Jew as illustration of your report? … it’s unnecessary and unpleasant,” Nahshon wrote in a Twitter post.

Nahshon, who has been fighting expressions of anti-Semitism in Belgium, was outraged over the choice of image.

Nahshon asked the news outlet to choose another picture. The Israeli Embassy in Brussels said, “This is how anti-Semitism is spread.”
