Korea: anti-Semitic comic book

The Simon Wiesenthal Center has denounced Rhie Won-bok’s comic “Far Country, Neighbor Country” for its anti-Semitic content. The issue has much resonance in the blogsphere.

Robert Koehler from Marmot's Hole hopes that more foreign press would pick up the story.

Michael Hurt tries to trace the history of anti-Semitism in Asia.

Joe Mondello has been translating the content of the book from Korean to English to throw light on the counterfactual nature of the book.
