Palestinian Problem

Remember this poster back in the '80s of the stork and the frog with the caption, "Never give up!" Obviously I borrowed that image and relabeled it to illustrate the Palestinian civil unrest in Gaza. I searched the internet to find the artist's name to give him or her credit but I came up empty. I did find, however, a couple of other versions of this cartoon.

Sometimes editorial cartoonists will use a popular cartoon character if the character relates to a particular political or social issue. For instance, Lucy pulling the football away from the gullible Charlie Brown has been used many times.

This cartoon idea came to mind while reading a story about the fighting in Gaza. News agencies are reporting that Hamas has gained the upper hand in the fighting but Fatah is resisting. I toyed with the idea of drawing different animals like a vulture and a skunk. You know, something more representative of the characteristics of these terrorist organizations, I mean, political parties. But in the end, I decided to go with the image that I think more people will remember.

Addendum:
This cartoon was reprinted in USA Today's Weekend Edition. Too bad that the paper known for color doesn't run the editorial cartoons in color. This cartoon looks a lot better in color.
