Jews
Abstract:
This image appeared on one side of a flyer of unknown provenance from circa 1978. The handwritten note from a Group Research, Inc., staff member in the upper right corner reads: "4-12-78 Put on car windshields in Georgetown". The other side of the flyer featured a photograph of Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, with a lengthy quotation attributed to him in which he spoke favorably about the advent of world-wide government, among other future reforms. Also included is a brief advertisement for anti-Semitic tracts such as Henry Ford’s The International Jew and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, available from Liberty Bell Publications. It is possible that this flyer was intended as an advertising leaflet for that Reedy, West Virginia-based publishing house. The film poster which this cartoon references is from 1975’s Jaws. But its sequel, Jaws 2, opened in June 1978, and it's plausible that this flyer’s creator used the cartoon in part to capitalize on the cultural recognition of advertising leading up to the sequel’s release.
