he Likud Party are after Latuff’s
blood, so he must be doing something right!
Latuff is a brilliant Brazilian cartoonist, who stands
accused of advocating another Holocaust for exposing
Israel’s crimes against Palestine in his artwork. Any
criticism of the Jewish State is deemed “anti-Semitism” and
Latuff has carved a career out of it.
His anti-Zionist portfolio
portrays the IDF desecrating holy places, massacring
innocents and attacking ambulances. He depicts the obscene
wall and the immorality of Israeli leaders, which is not to
Likud’s liking. The illogical conclusion they draw from this
is, that Latuff wants a ‘final solution’ and President
Ahmadinejad will oblige.

In truth, Latuff only wants
Israeli’s to stop killing Arabs and live peaceably with
their neighbours, but Likud want him “taken care of” and not
with a comfortable salary and apartment in Rio de Janeiro,
they mean, “one way or another” by the Mossad. They say, “he
is a top player in the Iranian evil
industry” and compare him to Goebbels!
Israeli’s believe the Holocaust
gives them immunity from condemnation and they have risen to
the occasion, with international support. Their allies paint
a rosy picture of poor little persecuted Israel defending
itself from Palestinian sticks and stones, with F-16’s.
Likud laments that their enemies are part of “a
gigantic genocide industry.
They acknowledge Latuff’s “awesome
graphic talent” but claim he is doing more damage to Israel
than WMD’s and poisoning a generation with his propaganda on
the World Wide Web. Likud accuse him of incitement and
attempted murder and say, “Israeli
carelessness on the information front is not acceptable and
can't go on.”
Latuff is brave
enough to stand up for Palestinians in their struggle
against the Zionist entity, so we should be
brave enough to defend his freedom of speech and thought.
The Likud Party’s slurs and death threats will only give him
more material for his cartoons, which he urges people to use
freely. It is up to us to take up this offer.
If Carlos Latuff is hit by a Ryder
truck mounting the pavement, you will know that he has been
“taken care of” but that will only serve to prove that his
caricatures are accurate and Israel is a pariah state whose
existence depends upon murdering opponents. Latuff says,
they can silence him with a bullet, but they
will never silence his art.
