A cartoon of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon eating the head of a Palestinian baby against
the backdrop of a burning Palestinian city has won first prize in the British Political
Cartoon Society's annual competition.

There were 35 entries in the Cartoon of the Year competition, sponsored by the British
Independent newspaper, from some of the country's leading cartoonists.

Dave Brown's winning cartoon was published in the Independent a few months ago, when
it was claimed that it was inspired by a Goya painting.

In his acceptance speech, Brown thanked the Israeli Embassy for its angry reaction to the
cartoon, which he said had contributed greatly to its publicity.

anti-Sharon and pro Jewish (english)

While the butcher Sharon deserves no sympathy we must reject anti-semitic stereotypes. There's an old myth that Jews drink the blood of Christian babies. This cartoon reminds me of this vile myth.

For a free and just world we need to fight colonialism, fight racism and anti-semitism and support a democratic multi-ethnic society in Palestine.

Boy, lets not have cruel cartoons.

Violence is not to be shown in print.

Only Television is allowed to present footage from US-made Apache War-copters
killing innocent bystanders, taxi drivers (and yes, babies!) while assasinating
some contrahend.

Say something against the Jewish National Security State
(or isn't it fundamentalist jewish, as opposed to secular?)
and Rabbis left right and centre condemn you for being an

Yes, I am an Antisemite, in the original sense of the word.

I am against semites (arabs and jews) killing each other.

Crimes of 1948 cannot be made good... but something can be done.

Anti jewish inflammatory writing has some history:

BUT WE KNOW THAT BY NOW... buzz off... we can tell when
human rights are violated, and we can take offence and we
can try to defend the underdog.

Who provokes the violence (Sharon goes Al.Aksa!)
and who is happy for the rule of violence, to stay in power?

Sharon (and Bush!)

Israel is not a democracy.

It occupies the land of people who have NO RIGHT TO VOTE.

Neither is the USA. It money-wrestles and perception-manages
people into thinking there are only two parties, and both are
in the hands of big-money. And Big Money controls the events.

Did Bush meet Warren Buffet in Nebraska on 9-11?
