A Palestinian cartoonist draws the Israeli occupation

For Palestinian cartoonist Mohammad Sabaaneh, words matter.Sabaaneh’s new book is “White and Black: Political Cartoons from Palestine.” Sabaaneh says. “When you deal with an occupation you should end the occupation. It is black and white. There is no middle area between black and white.”

His new book is a call for people around the world to understand how the Israeli occupation restricts and diminishes the daily lives of Palestinians. Take the security checkpoints and the Israeli West Bank barrier wall. “You can’t imagine that if you want to go from your home to your family’s home, you may spend seven hours just to reach your family home, when it should be just one hour,” Sabaaneh says.
