What makes this find so impressive, is that it occurred before the dreaded Mo-toons affair by the Jyllands-Posten.
Tim Benson, the President of the Political Cartoon Society that oversaw the awarding of its top prize to the cartoonist responsible for the infamous Sharon cartoon, was confronted by Martin Himel, asking him why is it that no cartoon depicting an Arab leader in a similar way has ever won the top prize? He responded that, ”well, Jews don’t issue fatwas, now do they?”
NOTE: I asked the documentary film maker, Martin Himel, for permission to upload this segment to YouTube, and he agreed, giving his full permission. It was taken from his film Jenin: Massacring Truth.
In the documentary made by Martin Himel, Jenin: Massacring Truth, IDF soldiers visit the very same journalists in the media in both London and in South Africa, who had smeared them for ‘war crimes’, supposedly having been involved in a ”massacre” in the Jenin refugee camp operation of Defensive Shield, in which a total number of 52 Palestinians, mostly terrorists and 22 IDF soldiers were killed,
The soldiers demanded an official apology from the editors and staff involved, and the film crew was there to get the reactions of the media as they were being confronted.
