Hezbollah or Home-Grown? Who Drew This Editorial Cartoon?

A man labelled with a Jewish star laments that he can't blow up food and medicine being handed out to Arabs. Hezbollah is lauded for "building bridges" with people.

Where does this editorial cartoon come from? A Hezbollah house organ, perhaps? Al-Jazeera? Maybe a fringe anti-Semitic group in the US?

No. It's an editorial cartoon by Joel Pett of the Lexington [KY] Herald-Leader that the Los Angeles Times saw fit to reprint on its op-ed page of this. This is the state of the MSM in 2006.
