A Important Message From Carlos Latuff

More boo-hoo victim-hood crap from the most powerful country in the "Middle East." And these people have the audacity to question why Iran would ask, "Why must Palestinians pay for the Jewish Holocaust". They also questioned where the line of free speech stopped in the West. They knew that criticism of Israel is off limits.

Continuously, we are told how democratic a nation Israel is but to view the following diatribe against Carlos and to witness this call for his neutralization because his cartoons are critical of Zionism is as Fascistic as anything NAZI Germany could cook up. And then they complain when they are depicted as NAZIS. This is exactly why Carlos draws what he does. I would think that every Palestinian home bulldozed to make more room for Israeli expansion does more damage than any cartoon. Are Israel's public relations representatives falling down on the job?

Carlos, I support you and will defend you with all my abilities!


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, [link] 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".


"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.

I hope Latuff will get out of this mess. I think they (the Likoud mostly) want to scare him.

Cartoons and symbols do not kill. It's the way we interpret them, use them and manipulate them which is dangerous. Latuff has only one thing in his mind : Peace, Freedom and Independence of Palestine. He is a "cartoon warrior". For that noble cause, I respect him. B.

Hi David & Ben

Fortunately I don't read Hebrew and I can't find the link to your portfolio, but I think it's wise that you didn't link directly.

Cartoons may not kill but you never know about the people who write such things.

As you pointed out in another post, none of your cartoons or Ben Heine's have perjorative overtones toward Jews. Latuff takes a little more risk by scrubbing up some of the harder line ideas about Jews in his cartoons, but this is the game isn't it.

How close can you get to the shark without getting a bite.

I cannot even participate on the same level as you cartoonists. I hide my identity because the terrorists have succeeded in terrorizing me. I don't fear for my life, but I definitely fear for my children.

I'm hacking like crazy the names of you two heros over at Ressentiment., using a psuedonym of course.

Is there a back story with you two? How do you know each other? How big is your cabal? Give me the scoop!
