"Palestinian cartoonist Mohammad Saba’aneh, a contributor to the Cartoon Movement comics journalism site, was arrested by Israeli authorities on Saturday and is being held without access to a lawyer, a situation that could continue indefinitely. The Cartoon Movement blog has been tracking the story as well as the reaction by international organizations." (robot 6)

" je pense que la place de ce jeune dessinateur n’est pas au « Salon des Refusés ». Je défends sa liberté d’expression et condamne la liberté d’oppression dont Israel use parfois sans juste mesure." (Kichka)
