Is this Pat Oliphant cartoon anti-Semitic?

It's certainly raised the ire of the Anti-Defamation League:

Pat Oliphant's outlandish and offensive use of the Star of David in combination with Nazi-like imagery is hideously anti-Semitic. It employs Nazi imagery by portraying Israel as a jack-booted, goose-stepping headless apparition. The implication is of an Israeli policy without a head or a heart.

Israel's defensive military operation to protect the lives of its men, women and children who are being continuously bombarded by Hamas rocket attacks has been turned on its head to show the victims as heartless, headless aggressors.

The Interwebs are already abuzz with the story, and you can find reactions to the cartoon here, here, here, here and here, to name just a few. Oliphant has yet to comment on the matter.

Hold onto your seats, folks, this could get way uglier than that dead chimp cartoon.
