First They Came For The Palestinians

"The work of the artist is to express what is repressed or even to speak the
unspoken grief of society. And the cartoonist’s task is not so much to be
balanced as to give balance, particularly in situations of disproportionate
power relationships such as we see in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It
is a healthy tradition dating back to the court jester and beyond: to be the
dissenting protesting voice that speaks when others cannot or will not.
