A Korean comic book author who writes a series on foreign countries has been receiving his share of negative attention for his portrayal of Jews in the U.S. In response to the allegation that his work is nothing short of Nazi propaganda, Rhie Won-bok will modify the chapter to reflect more kindly on the Jews. This would be a most excellent decision considering the book's vitriolic words.

The Jews are the invisible force that controls the U.S.," Rhie, a professor of visual arts at Duksung Women's University in Seoul, told The Associated Press. "I wrote the chapter to let people know that you can't understand the U.S. without knowing the Jewish community."

Although noting that Jews have faced prejudice for many centuries, the book takes a more sinister view of their role in the United States.

Rhie said the September 11 attacks occurred because of Arab terrorists' hatred for the U.S. he blamed on Jews who "move the U.S. in the way they want using money and the media as their weapon."

The book also says Korean-Americans are diligent and successful in the U.S. "but in the end, always run into the wall called the Jews." The accompanying picture shows an exasperated man walking up a hill only to be blocked by a brick wall with a Star of David and the word "STOP" in English.
