No country in Europe has responded with more grace to the Middle East refugee crisis than Germany, who refused to put a cap on the number of people they took in while many other nations on the continent were closing their borders.
So, you could see how Germans might be upset by one of its biggest allies, America, unilaterally shutting its doors.
In case you can’t, here is the cover of Der Spiegel‘s Mirror.
That eliminates any doubts you may have had.
The illustrator of the cover, Edel Rodriguez, himself a Cuban political refugee now living in America, spoke to the Washington Post, saying it was less a metaphor than the honest truth.
“It’s a beheading of democracy, a beheading of a sacred symbol. And clearly, lately, what’s associated with beheadings is ISIS, so there’s a comparison,” Rodriguez said. “Both sides are extremists, so I’m just making a comparison between them.”
Then again, it has nothing on the cover Ireland’s Village Magazine just dropped.
Keep in mind they did say it would be unethical, but that doesn’t really jive with the photo illustration.
