They added that the cartoonist is not affiliated to any political party.Sabanah’s cartoons are widespread in the Arab world. He is well-known for his criticism through his cartoons, which focus mainly on the Palestinian people’s problems and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Israel extends detention of Palestinian cartoonist

http://www.cpj.org/2013/02/israel-extends-detention-of-palestinian-cartoonist.php

New York, February 21, 2013–An Israeli court yesterday extended the detention of Palestinian cartoonist Mohammad Saba’aneh, who has been held since Saturday without charge or access to his lawyer, according to news reports. The Committee to Protect Journalists calls on authorities to immediately release the political cartoonist and allow him access to his lawyer.
The military court extended Saba’aneh’s detention for nine days, the Palestinian Center for Development and Media Freedoms (MADA) told CPJ. Israeli authorities said they were investigating the cartoonist for providing services to unspecified “hostile organizations,”according to Saba’aneh’s employer, the Palestinian daily Al-Hayat al-Jadida, which cited the cartoonist’s lawyer. Saba’aneh works as a political cartoonist for Al-Hayat al-Jadida, and has depicted imprisoned Palestinians in his most recent cartoons. One, published on February 17, shows a mirror on the wall of a prison, revealing prison bars in its reflection. More than 300 Palestinians are being held without charge in administrative detention in Israel, according to B’Tselem, an Israeli human rights group. Saba’aneh was detained on February 16 while crossing the Allenby Bridge checkpoint from Jordan after returning from a conference for his work at the Arab American University, according to news reports. He is being held at the Jalemeh detention center near the northern West Bank city of Jenin, MADA said. It is not clear if Saba’aneh is being held under “administrative detention.” Under Israeli law, prisoners can be held under administrative detention indefinitely without formal charges being filed against them. Local press freedom groups said they believed Saba’aneh’s arrest could be part of a larger crackdown on the Palestinian press in the region. In January, Israeli soldiersprevented about 20 international journalists from covering the eviction of a Palestinian campsite in the West Bank. Another international journalist was briefly detained in the West Bank, according to news reports. Three Palestinian journalists remain in administrative detention in Israel, two without charge, according to CPJ’s annual prison census conducted in December. CPJ’s calls to the Israeli authorities were not immediately returned. “Israel has a history of using administrative detention to silence critical reporting. This flies in the face of international law,” said Sherif Mansour, CPJ’s Middle East and North Africa coordinator. “The Israeli authorities must explain why they have used such an overbroad security statute against political cartoonist Mohammad Saba’aneh.” In 2010, Saba’aneh visited the United States as a member of the State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program, and he was a guest of the Cartoonists Right Network International’s annual Award for Courage in Editorial Cartooning.   http://dailycartoonist.com/index.php/2013/03/21/israelis-extend-detention-of-palestinian-cartoonist/ For background on Mohammads arrest.

JIM MORAN /THE MIAMI HERALD (February 28, 2013)Kevin Siers/Charlotte Observer (February 14, 2013)Jim Moran/Miami Herald (January 27, 2013)Jim Moran/Miami Herald (January 22, 2013)Naji Al Ali:  Born 1938 in Palestine, Assassinated in London 1987 Little Handala before an engraved stone that reads “I think therefore I exist.” WHO IS HANDALA? From approximately 1975 through 1987 Naji Al-Ali created cartoons that depict the complexities of the plight of Palestinian refugees. These cartoons are still relevant today and Handala, the refugee child who is present in every cartoon, remains a potent symbol of the struggle of the Palestinian people for justice and self-determination. Naji Al-Ali wrote: “The child Handala is my signature, everyone asks me about him wherever I go. I gave birth to this child in the Gulf and I presented him to the people. His name is Handala and he has promised the people that he will remain true to himself. I drew him as a child who is not beautiful; his hair is like the hair of a hedgehog who uses his thorns as a weapon. Handala is not a fat, happy, relaxed, or pampered child. He is barefooted like the refugee camp children, and he is an icon that protects me from making mistakes. Even though he is rough, he smells of amber. His hands are clasped behind his back as a sign of rejection at a time when solutions are presented to us the American way.” Handala was born ten years old, and he will always be ten years old. At that age, I left my homeland, and when he returns, Handala will still be ten, and then he will start growing up. The laws of nature do not apply to him. He is unique. Things will become normal again when the homeland returns. I presented him to the poor and named him Handala as a symbol of bitterness. At first, he was a Palestinian child, but his consciousness developed to have a national and then a global and human horizon. He is a simple yet tough child, and this is why people adopted him and felt that he represents their consciousness.”   Jeff Parker/Florida Today (December 19, 2012)   Arming Teachers
