Arab Cartoonists Demonize Sharon

Since the deterioration in the Israeli prime minister’s health, Arab cartoonists have relentlessly targeted Sharon, reflecting public opinion in the Arab world. In one cartoon, Sharon is seen as receiving blood from a pigeon of peace, while in a second, an angel of death is seen shedding tears of blood for Sharon. A third cartoon depicts Sharon’s spirit lying in ambush with a gun for an Arab who is reading about Sharon’s death with satisfaction. A cartoon in the Qatari daily al-Sharaq shows a religious Jew draining an endless number of skulls from Sharon’s brain into a garbage bin.
