"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)

song to the siren

90 seconds is the time you have once the siren starts to find shelter from the missiles. in our case, it meant running down the stairs to the ground floor. then you hear an explosion, wait 10 minutes and go back to your life, until the next siren.
