A Daily Mailstory about two imposters who posed as Muslim clerics and killed a woman during an ‘exorcism’ has been illustrated with an image of a book bearing a star of David.
The image is from Shutterstock, an stock image library which describes the image as a “Hallowe’en still life” with “magic books”.
This is probably not antisemitism, just sheer ignorance. We expect the Daily Mail and Shutterstock to remedy the situation.
For the record, we are not aware of any lethal exorcism process being condoned in the holy book of any mainstream religion, so we hope that we won’t see the star of David replaced with another religion’s symbol.
