Last March I wrote about Palestinian political cartoonist Mohammed Sabaaneh being imprisoned by Israeli authorities for no good reason, except the unstated reason that they didn’t like his cartoons which were critical of Israel. I’m happy to announce that he was just released! Here is a nice article from The World.
At that time I asked readers to send a letter to the Israeli Ambassador calling for Sabaaneh’s release. Cartoonists around the world made the same requests of the Israeli ambassadors in their countries – I never heard of any of them getting a response. I got no response.
Great to have you back, Mohammad!
