LATUFF'S VIDEO STATEMENT FOR THE PALESTINIANS

Mensagem do cartunista brasileiro Latuff, em português e árabe, ao povo palestino, por conta da agressão israelense contra Gaza

رسالة من الرسام البرازيلي ( لطوف ) ، باللغتين البرتغالية والعربية ، موجهة للشعب الفلسطيني ، تنديداً بالهجوم الإسرائيلي على غزة

Please, help me to spread this video. Thanks!

May 15th, 1948, was the Palestinian Al-Nakba (the Catastrophe), or what Israel refers to as the "Day of Independence". To Palestinians, it symbolizes the dispossession, displacement, and uprooting of 800,000 Palestinians from their homes in what then became Israel. Many of these refugees and their descendants, who now number more than 4 million, still languish in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, and surrounding Arab countries. While Al-Nakba embodies the first major wave of forced expulsion of Palestinians from their land, Israel's premeditated campaign of ethnic cleansing continues to this very day.

Philip Alston, the U.N. special rapporteur on extrajudicial executions, is visiting Rio de Janeiro to meet with political representatives, humans rights groups and family members of people killed by police forces. Today, after a meeting with political representatives, I had a chance to give Mr. Alston two original artworks I made today about Gaza strip humanitarian crisis:

bp0.blogger.com/_LYYPIMTpiD0/R…

bp2.blogger.com/_LYYPIMTpiD0/R…

I said to Mr. Alston that I knew he was in Brazil to check denunciations of extra-judicial killings commited by Rio's police, but I offered cartoons as a quick reminder about the arbitrary executions commited by Israel in Palestine. Yes, I know this is only a drop in a whole ocean, but...anyway, it was sincere. For the love I have for the brave Palestinian people.
ANTI-SEMITISM: WEAPON OF CHOICE FOR ZIONISTS

Just realize there's a book, published in Paris in 2003, called "Au nom de l'antisionisme" (In the name of the anti-Zionism), where there is a whole chapter dedicated to me and with, at least, 8 pages illustrated with my artworks. The book's pages can be visualized on Google books search engine: books.google.com
Of course, expect all that well-known anti-Semitism mantra that the Zionists loooooove to sing out loud.

RECENT VISITOR: CAMP LIBERTY, IRAQ

A Wikipedia entry brought to my Tales of Iraq War cartoon blog a visitor from Camp Liberty, in Abu Ghraib (!!!), Iraq, one of the largest U.S. overseas posts built since the Vietnam War. In a pause between kills, U.S. occupation soldiers are relaxing reading anti-war cartoons...

See for yourself: tales-of-iraq-war.blogspot.com…
That's why I tell you, readers. Wikipedia SUCKS!

Wikipedia has deleted the entry about Belgian pro-Palestine cartoonist Ben Heine from their pages. And who's the person that recommended Ben's ban? Karl Meier (see his Wikipedia profile here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Kar…). Now take note of the following from his sidebar: "This user supports the Zionist movement."

Need I say more?

Read about it on Desert Peace's blog desertpeace.blogspot.com/2007/… and David Baldinger's blog dbaldinger.com/blog/2007/09/08…
Robert Vandenbego begomadrid2.blogspot.com/ a skilled graphic designer, produces well-made color zines which are distributed for free in Madrid, Barcelona and London. According to Uno de los Nuestros blog enkil.wordpress.com/, recently, Robert was censored enkil.wordpress.com/2007/07/27… by a so-called "politically correct" art gallery in Madrid due the cover illustration of one of the zines. The artwork in question was made by me, in 2004, entitled "The United Colours of Bush". The gallery labeled the artwork as "bad taste and anti-American." They prevented Robert from distributing his zines in the gallery. Probably, for the owners of this art gallery, cartoons are far more "bad taste" than wars. Shame on them, and all of my support to Robert Vandenbego.

Heidi MacDonald, former DC Comics editor and renowned comics expert, wrote in her influent blog "The Beat" about my Virginia Tech rampage strips: pwbeat.publishersweekly.com/bl…
Some of my friends wrote me about the Wikipedia article on me and I'd like to clarify some points. After checking the article, especially "discussion" and "history" sections, you can see it's far from neutral. You will always find someone trying to attach labels like "racist" or "anti-Semite" (surprised?), including Deviantart users, who, unhappy for having comments hidden by me in my DA page and for my criticism against U.S. and Israel, migrate to Wikipedia to release all their anger against me.

And now they've even created a fake biography where it's said that I was "born into a family of 7 in Rio de Janeiro to a Brazilian father and an Argentinian mother" and that "parents separated after my mother moved back to Argentina to marry a Jewish man." And of course, refering to some made up gay affair: "At the age of 34, Carlos and his soon-to-be husband, Javier, traveled to Toronto, on where they would undergo vows for marriage."

The most interesting thing is that I was NEVER contacted by ANY Wikipedia editor for collecting information about me and my art or at least VERIFY the authencity of such "biography".

The real story is that: NO, I was not born in a family of 7. NO my parents aren't separated (of course the choice for a "Jewish man" by editors was not by accident, as if it could sound extra offensive to me) and NO, I'm not married with men or women. If I had a gay relationship I would have no problem making it public, 'cause I really don't have any problems with gays or lesbians. In fact, I've been a supporter of gay and lesbian human rights (just check my gallery for gay related artworks).

In short, this Wikipedia article is great for good laughs but NOT for serious information about me and my art. So my advice for you readers and supporters is do not trust in everything you see about me around the Web. If you want ACCURATE information on me and my cartoons, you can start from here:

benjaminheine.blogspot.com/200…
www.iraqslogger.com/index.php/…
palestinechronicle.com/story-2…
www.geocities.com/voiceofthere…

If you have any doubt about anything, don't be fooled by anyone, talk right to the artist: latuff@uninet.com.br

Since the poor guys can't make anything to stop the world flow of anti-Israeli apartheid cartoons, they try cheap dirty tricks like this. Anyway, judging by this "biography", I can say they have a bright future writing screenplays for U.S. sitcoms.
Hehehehehehehehe!!!

SOCIALIST WORKER PAPER ON LATUFF

Socialist Workers Party, in U.K., published a note about me in its Socialist Worker paper: www.socialistworker.co.uk/arti…
By Cheryl Haines
Jordan Times

AMMAN — Vibrant, evocative and politically resonant, Carlos Latuff's cartoons lend an artistic hand to the often under represented plight of Palestinians living in the occupied territories.

Starting today and running until Wednesday, "Relentless Resistance in Palestine",  a collection of the political cartoonist's works will be on display at the Foresight Art Centre.

Bringing the renowned Brazilian's works to Amman is attributed to three Jordanian friends living in Amman whose relatives were a part of the mass migration of Palestinians to Jordan and other countries in the region through the past half-century.

"When we first had a look at his cartoons we were inspired," one of the Jordanian organisers who wished to remain anonymous told The Jordan Times, "[Latuff] is not an Arab and he has nothing to do with the region, but he still wants to make the suffering heard… to show the world the truth about the way the media portrays Palestine."

Contributing his works for free, the three friends received Latuff's permission and support before they began organising the exhibition. He provided high-resolution soft copies of his works, which were then complied and printed through funding provided by the three organisers and private donors.

A compilation of the works on display will be on sale at the exhibition hall as will various prints from Latuff's collections printed on T-shirts and mugs. All proceeds from the sales will go to benefit the Palestine Children's Welfare Fund, a regional charity going to benefit the youngest citizens in the occupied territories.

Since a visit to the West Bank in 1999, Latuff has dedicated a great deal of his artistic energy to exploring the lives of Palestinians through his creative know-how.

His "Tales of Iraq" series, detailing the political, social and economic upheaval of the country, was inspired in 2003 shortly after the American invasion.

Latuff's dedication, however, transcends his creative works. He has similarly committed himself to political activism, raising awareness of the region's conflicts in his native country and exploring past conflicts and regional inequalities around the world.

In a series titled "We are all Palestinians" Latuff depicts various ethnic groups in solidarity with Palestine's occupation. The series' cartoons depicts Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, Black South Africans under the Apartheid system, Native North American and Tibetans in China. All of these groups are drawn saying "I am Palestinian."

In the "Forgiveness" series, his cartoons display Muslims and Jews quoting words of tolerance from various philosopher-kings, among them Buddha and Gandhi.

Latuff's cartoons, however, have not been immune to sporadic criticism. In 2006, he attended the Iranian "International Holocaust Cartoon Competition", organised as a rebuff against the controversy surrounding the Danish cartoon's depiction of the Prophet Mohammad. He placed second at the competition where his cartoon illustrated a comparison between the West Bank's separation wall and Nazi concentration camps. Past works have also illustrated negative images of former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon, US President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

"Our aim is to bring awareness towards the inequality of Palestinian suffering and in the process raise urgently needed funds," one of the organisers explained.

"We started small, but in the future hopefully we can bring his works to other countries."

Until now, Latuff's works have only been publicly displayed in Gaza and Iran, although his works have been published in various publications and websites, including the Independent Media Centre. His cartoons can also be found online at: latuff2.deviantart.com

ATTENTION COMICS WRITERS!

I DO look for short stories (maximum 4 pages) about war in Iraq, specially from the point of view of Iraqis, for my "Tales of Iraq War" series. You're free to use your imagination but remember that, I DON'T look for stories of "brave" U.S. soldiers fighting "terrorists" and this kind of bullshit. This is anti-war, non-profit and copyleft stuff, but of course I will give you credit as the writer of the comics. If you're good on writting war comics stories, drop me an email: latuff@uninet.com.br

OMRI EVRON, A VERY DIGNIFIED ISRAELI

"Most young Israelis don't know what the IDF is doing to the Palestinians...Most young Israelis had never visited a Palestinian town or talked to a Palestinian. Many don't know what life is like on the other side of the border. But I have gone there, and I know how the Palestinians suffer as a result of the occupation. That's why I just can't become a soldier in the IDF. I simply can't do it".

CARTOONS TRACKED BY THE U.S. CENTRAL COMMAND

The kind of visitors who are coming to my Tales of Iraq War blog (tales-of-iraq-war.blogspot.com) never ceases to amaze me. It's not new that my cartoons are seen by U.S. military and security organizations. But whoah! Now it was the United States Central Command (CENTCOM), headquarters of the deadly war games in Iraq! Man, it's hard to believe that my cartoons are a national security issue in the USA, and probably in Iraq.

PROGRESSIVE STUDENTS LABOUR FRONT EXHIBITION OF LATUFF'S CARTOONS IN GAZA STRIP(PHOTOS)

Photos taken last Friday during exhibition of Latuff's cartoons in an university in Gaza, organized by the Progressive Students Labour Front. Unecessary to say that, for a supporter of Palestinian struggle for independence, it's a great honour to have my art shown in Palestine by Palestinians for Palestinians.

IS THE NEW YORK TIMES INTERESTED IN MY CARTOONS???

Let's see what have we here...someone in The New York Times searching for "Carlos+Latuff" on Google. Seems my cartoons are really reaching an audience.

See report here: photos1.blogger.com/blogger/41…

Well, here's a message to you, people from The New York Times:
You are welcome to come and read my stuff, but do not expect any interview, ok? I don't speak to corporate media!

SUPPORT LETTER FROM PSLF

I just realized that Progressive Students Labor Front in Palestine published in their website a support letter to me and my art (in Arabic): www.pslf.org/show_news_all.php…

And people just can't understand why I love Palestinians so much.

"INAPPROPRIATE NATURE"

My video "Similarities" has been rejected by YouTube (just bought by Google) due to its "inappropriate nature". Perhaps for YouTube/Google is inappropriate any comparison between Nazi troops in Europe and U.S. troops in Iraq. Anyway, we're in Internet, where we can always dodge the censorship (at least until now). So, you can check the video in the following links:

Hate Speech (THE VIDEO!)

When someone calls your support for Palestinians as "hate speech", show this video I just made:
www.indybay.org/newsitems/2006…

-----------------------

HATE SPEECH!

"Israeli supporters prowl the internet and the media shouting 'hate speech' not at those who actually hate, but at those who focus on the embarrassing truths Israel does not want Americans to think about while they pony up another few billions dollars. The good news is that Israel's supporters have screamed 'hate speech' and 'anti-Semite' so much that the phrases have lost their shock value, which means they have lost their value to silence...

...But if you want to see REAL hate in action, please read on.

1. 'There is a huge gap between us (Jews) and our enemies ­not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience. They are our neighbors here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred meters away, there are people who do not belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to a different galaxy.' Israeli president Moshe Katsav. The Jerusalem Post, May 10, 2001

2. 'The Palestinians are like crocodiles, the more you give them meat, they want more'.... Ehud Barak, Prime Minister of Israel at the time - August 28, 2000. Reported in the Jerusalem Post August 30, 2000

3. '[The Palestinians are] beasts walking on two legs.' Menahim Begin, speech to the Knesset, quoted in Amnon Kapeliouk, 'Begin and the Beasts'. New Statesman, 25 June 1982.

4. 'The Palestinians' would be crushed like grasshoppers ... heads smashed against the boulders and walls.' ' Israeli Prime Minister (at the time) in a speech to Jewish settlers New York Times April 1, 1988

5. 'When we have settled the land, all the Arabs will be able to do about it will be to scurry around like drugged cockroaches in a bottle.' Raphael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defense Forces, New York Times, 14 April 1983.

6. 'How can we return the occupied territories? There is nobody to return them to.' Golda Meir, March 8, 1969.

7. 'There was no such thing as Palestinians, they never existed.' Golda Maier Israeli Prime Minister June 15, 1969

8. 'The thesis that the danger of genocide was hanging over us in June 1967 and that Israel was fighting for its physical existence is only bluff, which was born and developed after the war.' Israeli General Matityahu Peled, Ha'aretz, 19 March 1972.

9. David Ben Gurion (the first Israeli Prime Minister): 'If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti - Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?' Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), pp121.

9a. Ben Gurion also warned in 1948 : 'We must do everything to insure they ( the Palestinians) never do return.' Assuring his fellow Zionists that Palestinians will never come back to their homes. 'The old will die and the young will forget.'

10. 'We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves.' Chairman Heilbrun of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983.

11. 'Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.' - Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001, to Shimon Peres, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio.

12. 'We declare openly that the Arabs have no right to settle on even one centimeter of Eretz Israel... Force is all they do or ever will understand. We shall use the ultimate force until the Palestinians come crawling to us on all fours.' Rafael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defense Forces - Gad Becker, Yediot Ahronot 13 April 1983, New York Times 14 April 1983.

13. 'We must do everything to ensure they [the Palestinian refugees] never do return' David Ben-Gurion, in his diary, 18 July 1948, quoted in Michael Bar Zohar's Ben-Gurion: the Armed Prophet, Prentice-Hall, 1967, p. 157.

15. 'We should prepare to go over to the offensive. Our aim is to smash Lebanon, Trans-Jordan, and Syria. The weak point is Lebanon, for the Moslem regime is artificial and easy for us to undermine. We shall establish a Christian state there, and then we will smash the Arab Legion, eliminate Trans-Jordan; Syria will fall to us. We then bomb and move on and take Port Said, Alexandria and Sinai.' David Ben-Gurion, May 1948, to the General Staff. From Ben-Gurion, A Biography, by Michael Ben-Zohar, Delacorte, New York 1978.

16. 'We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population.' Israel Koenig, 'The Koenig Memorandum'

17. 'Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you because geography books no longer exist. Not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either. Nahlal arose in the place of Mahlul; Kibbutz Gvat in the place of Jibta; Kibbutz Sarid in the place of Huneifis; and Kefar Yehushua in the place of Tal al-Shuman. There is not a single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population.' Moshe Dayan, address to the Technion, Haifa, reported in Haaretz, April 4, 1969.

18. 'We walked outside, Ben-Gurion accompanying us. Allon repeated his question, What is to be done with the Palestinian population?' Ben-Gurion waved his hand in a gesture which said 'Drive them out!'' Yitzhak Rabin, leaked censored version of Rabin memoirs, published in the New York Times, 23 October 1979.

19. Rabin's description of the conquest of Lydda, after the completion of Plan Dalet. 'We shall reduce the Arab population to a community of woodcutters and waiters' Uri Lubrani, PM Ben-Gurion's special adviser on Arab Affairs, 1960. From 'The Arabs in Israel' by Sabri Jiryas.

20. 'There are some who believe that the non-Jewish population, even in a high percentage, within our borders will be more effectively under our surveillance; and there are some who believe the contrary, i.e., that it is easier to carry out surveillance over the activities of a neighbor than over those of a tenant. [I] tend to support the latter view and have an additional argument:...the need to sustain the character of the state which will henceforth be Jewish...with a non-Jewish minority limited to 15 percent. I had already reached this fundamental position as early as 1940 [and] it is entered in my diary.' Joseph Weitz, head of the Jewish Agency's Colonization Department. From Israel: an Apartheid State by Uri Davis, p.5.

21. 'Everybody has to move, run and grab as many hilltops as they can to enlarge the settlements because everything we take now will stay ours... Everything we don't grab will go to them.' Ariel Sharon, Israeli Foreign Minister, addressing a meeting of militants from the extreme right-wing Tsomet Party, Agence France Presse, November 15, 1998.

22. 'It is the duty of Israeli leaders to explain to public opinion, clearly and courageously, a certain number of facts that are forgotten with time. The first of these is that there is no Zionism, colonialization or Jewish State without the eviction of the Arabs and the expropriation of their lands.' Yoram Bar Porath, Yediot Aahronot, of 14 July 1972.

23. 'Spirit the penniless population across the frontier by denying it employment... Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discreetly and circumspectly.' Theodore Herzl, founder of the World Zionist Organization, speaking of the Arabs of Palestine, Complete Diaries, June 12, 1895 entry..."

(NEW VIDEO!) SIMILARITIES

My brothers and sisters-in-arts,

www.yourfilehost.com/media.php…

-----------------------

BEWARE OF THE "NEW ANTI-SEMITISM"!

"Whenever Israel faces a public relations debacle such as the Intifada or international pressure to resolve the Israel-Palestine conflict, American Jewish organizations orchestrate this extravaganza called the 'new anti-Semitism.' The purpose is several-fold. First, it is to discredit any charges by claiming the person is an anti-Semite. It's to turn Jews into the victims, so that the victims are not the Palestinians any longer. As people like Abraham Foxman of the ADL put it, the Jews are being threatened by a new holocaust. It's a role reversal – the Jews are now the victims, not the Palestinians. So it serves the function of discrediting the people leveling the charge. It's no longer Israel that needs to leave the Occupied Territories; it's the Arabs who need to free themselves of the anti-Semitism."

(Norman G. Finkelstein)

LIKUD PARTY DISCOVERS BRAZILIAN ARTIST LATUFF

Article written by Anis Hamadeh, writer, musician and journalist: www.anis-online.de/1/rooms/lat…

-----------------------

ISRAELI RIGHT-WING PARTY THREATENS ME!

Now guess what! I'm being threatened by Likud, a right wing party in Israel (former party of Sabra and Shatila butcher Ariel Sharon). In a page linked to Likud, www.likudnik.co.il/Front/NewsN… my picture and some of my cartoons are shown. Along the same old name-calling (Nazi, anti-Semitic...) they say that "This Carlos should be 'taken care of' long time ago, in some way or another".

Check translation of the page's content (from the Hebrew):

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

"Carlos Latuff

He has a reference in Wikipedia; at Google you can find 8 pages about him. But what does the Foreign Affairs Ministry know about him? The Mossad? The Committee of Foreign Affairs and Security? The Israeli Army? Any other element that deals with Israel's security?

Carlos Latuff - an Arabic family name. Born in Rio de Janeiro, 36 years old. In his homepage he is photographed with Leila Khaled, the terrorist who hijacked an Israeli airplane. He is one of the biggest Israel-haters.

He is the headmaster of one of the biggest factories for propaganda and incitements against Israel, he distributes poison in every place. The damage he's doing to Israel amongst youth around the world is enormous. He is one of the most influential Anti-Zionists in the world wide web, an awesome graphic talent, and a great cartoonist. He knows how to influence and use the internet. He is a top player in the Iranian evil industry, and his cartoons participate in the holocaust denial gallery in Teheran.

He hates America & Israel, his cartoons show Israelis and their rulers as demons. He sends missiles of hatred no less powerful than the missiles that Iran is developing, and he takes part in a gigantic genocide industry, with one goal - the destroying of the Jewish state.

In an impressive video movie, in clear English, he's trying to unite all those who hate Israel. In a movie distributed in the net he asks them to be active and to participate in the struggle on the information front - to write stories & poems, to talkback, to blog, send photos, to participate in meetings and demos, to be active and to unite.

His satanic cartoons are published in the world journals, and in endless number of websites. He does not ask for copyrights and he urges people to use them freely.

And what Israel is doing? Nothing!!!

Did they complain to the Brazilian embassy?

Think what would happen to an Israeli citizen that was exposing the leaders of Brazil in this way. Did anybody try to charge him with incitement and attempted murder? Did anybody hear about him at all??

This is the WMD that Prof. Harari, the ex-headmaster of Weitman institute lectured about in the last Hertzlia convention. This is the danger Prof. Yoav Gelbar is warning in his publicity work. That what brings the heads of the Jewish Congress to Israel this week.

The Israeli carelessness on the information front is not acceptable and can't go on. This Carlos should have been "taken care of" a long time ago, in some way or another. The question is: what should we do, and whose responsibility is it to do so?

I call you all to be active. There is no one institute that can challenge this kind of genocidal war. Not the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, nor the Ministry of Defense, or even any other ministry. We have to unite, as Carlos suggested, and act together.

We are witnessing a systematic & basic way of giving legitimacy to hit the "Zionist demon". Carlos Latuff excels at this kind of propaganda. The problem will be solved - the "final solution" - by the Iranian President, who enjoys those drawings & cartoons, Nazi Germany, Holocaust denial, Hizbullah & its rockets. This is the reason he needs those atomic plants, he needs them to kill all those disgusting creatures that Latuff is drawing, and then the world will be a better place. There were others that tried it before, remember?

Goebbels was the propaganda minister of the 3rd Reich and made propaganda a powerful weapon for the Nazi regime. His basic assumption was that a lie said enough times became truth in the consciousness of people. Now we know that Hitler wrote his books and then manifested them in the Holocaust. The things that are said against Israel in internet forums & visual elements are copies of the Nazi propaganda. This is an ideology of genocide that has proven its power in the past."

Of course, we can expect anything from IsraHell. If they can carry on "selective killings" of Palestinians, and carpet Beirut with tons of bombs murdering hundreds of civilians, what is the big deal about "neutralizing" one cartoonist in Brazil? Death threats, cheap attempts to terrorize me, however, will not prevent me from supporting Palestinians in their struggle against brutal Israeli occupation. The most that Likud creeps can do is silence me with a bullet, but they will never be able to silence my art.

LATUFF READ BY IRAQIS IN IRAQ!!!

My comics along an interview were published in Al Raed ("The Leader"), a Sunni magazine in Iraq!
I'm glad to have my art seen by Iraqis in Iraq!
Thanks for publishing my artworks.
:)

See the page of the magazine here: www.deviantart.com/deviation/3…

U.S. CITIZENS ATTENTION! CHECK OUT HOW YOUR TAXES ARE BEING USED!

Judging by frequent visits from DOJ/FBI (Department of Justice/Federal Bureau of Investigation) to my Tales of Iraq War blog, I might suppose that U.S. taxpayers are funding agents to spend time reading comics.

See visitor report here: tales-of-iraq-war.blogspot.com…

(VIDEO) PUBLIC STATEMENT ON THE LEBANESE AND PALESTINIANS by Brazilian cartoonist Latuff

Watch it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIu8Rz…

-----------------------

A T T E N T I O N !

This message is for all my brothers and sisters-in-arts.
My intention here is to publish copyleft imagery, which will address socio-political messages not available in the so-called "mainstream". Right now I have many supporters reproducing my cartoons in t-shirts, magazines, leaflets, books, newspapers, websites (and even walls) all around the world, from Washington DC to Seoul.

If you agree with my points of views and want to support me, please, don't waste your precious time in useless discussions with right-wingers. Don't feed flame wars with trolls.

You are fighting the fleas instead to fight the dog. Let's keep our focus on BIG dogs only.

The best thing you can do is to save my artworks, reproduce and forward them to other people. And let those right-wingers speaking alone...That's called STRATEGY!
:)

However, if you want to waste your time talking to right-wingers, ok, it's up to you, but PLEASE, do it in THEIR Deviantart pages.

Thank you for your collaboration.

"TERRORIST" COMICS???!!!

Since I started webcomics blog about Iraq war (tales-of-iraq-war.blogspot.com), less than 24 hours ago, this site was "visited" by a server located at IP address 67.108.115.178, host name techtrack.gov. Interesting is that the Terrorist Screening Center has an email address on that same domain. TSC is an agency of U.S. Department of Homeland Security, created in 2003 to consolidate terrorist watchlists and provide 24/7 operational support for thousands of Federal screeners across the country and around the world.

Well, Big Brother is not only watching us but also reading comics...

MY ART IN THE NORMAN FINKELSTEIN'S WEB SITE

I'm glad to announce that some of my cartoons and links to my art were published in the website of Prof. Norman Finkelstein, author of five books, including the best seller "The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the exploitation of Jewish suffering". Mr. Finkelstein received his doctorate in 1988 from the Department of Politics, Princeton University, for a thesis on the theory of Zionism. He currently teaches political theory at DePaul University in Chicago. Check the page here: www.normanfinkelstein.com/arti…

Mr. Finkelstein was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1953. The dedication for his first book read:

To my beloved parents,

Maryla Husyt Finkelstein,
survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto,
Maidanek concentration camp

and

Zacharias Finkelstein,
survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto,
Auschwitz concentration camp.

MESSAGE FROM NEW YORK POST

Today I get a message regarding those cartoons I submitted to Iranian cartoon contest:

"Hello Mr. Latuff. I am a reporter for the New York Post. I wanted to ask about the cartoon that you entered in the Iranian holocaust-denying cartoon contest.  Would you mind sending me a copy of your cartoon by email? Why did you enter the contest?  Don't you think by entering, it gives legitimacy to false statements made by the president of Iran?Also, do you have any contact information for someone at Hamshahri who is running the contest?

Muito obrigado,

Geoff Earle
Reporter
New York Post"

And here's my reply:

"I don't talk to mainstream. End of story."

:)

Isn't it great to be free and shitting on corporate media's head?
Hehehehehe!!!

I would like to thank you brothers and sisters-in-arts for all the kind messages to me and my art, here and at latuff.deviantart.com. I couldn't make anything without your support.

I hope to keep working with my art on behalf of people living under oppression, don't matter if in the occupied territories of Palestine or in the slums of Brazil.

Again, thank you for your essential support. As I always says "my art is your art".

Best regards,

Latuff
