    I see nothing wrong with this cartoon - Israel has built a wall, Palestinians are getting killed every day as part of the occupation including the last 10 days when 6 young people were killed for protesting the wall and the occupation. Why couldnt the army have used gas as they do so regularly or the horrifying skunk machine? although Abu Mazen has said he will enter talks if Netanyahu freezes construction, Netanyahu has not frozen construction. If u go to the West Bank you can see building continuously so why is this caricature so terrible. Are caricatures meant to be beautiful? How about before Rabin was killed and the right wing were incited by the heinous ads of Netanyahu showing Rabin with Kaffiya, Rabin in Nazi uniform and in Raanana, Rabin in a coffin? Was that whole ad campaign which ended in the assassination of Rabin, any less harmful than this caricature? all the protesters should go and see The Gatekeepers and maybe they'll wake up to the reality of occupation.
