BUT IF YOU DEPICTED ARAFAT THIS WAY, THEY’D CALL YOU A RACIST:
A cartoon of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon eating the head of a Palestinian baby against the backdrop of a burning Palestinian city has won first prize in the British Political Cartoon Society’s annual competition.
And yet, who has killed more actual babies? (Or, for that matter, Palestinians?) It’s not even close.
UPDATE: Stephen Green has thoughts on what it would take to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians. “The only process towards peace is the kind of war one side can’t commit, and the other side won’t.”
