Inmate Netanyahu

With all the news happening, international stories that would normally get some attention are buried. I even forgot to post this cartoon that I drew more than a week ago.

Israel’s president is facing a big bribery scandal that could send him to jail. It is interesting how little ink this story is getting.

I first drew this with Netanyahu wearing the cartoon classic striped prison suit, without thinking. Here’s some advice for cartoonists: don’t draw Israelis in prison garb that looks like concentration camp suits, even though orange prison suits don’t convert well to black and white.  Sometimes cartoon clichés are best ignored.
