That Likely Palestinian Prisoner Swap

Here’s my latest cartoon on the upcoming Israel/Hamas prisoner swap. I’m putting it here in the blog because I know how all of you love to comment on Palestinian cartoons.

I don't get it. Why would that kid trade a thousand of his marbles for one? is that other kid a bully who's just trying to make it look to observers like the other kid wanted to trade? And how does the other kid get a thousand marbles anyway? is he a really good marble player. Perhaps he wants to trade for the other kid's antique marble and get out of the game because he has developed carpal tunnel syndrome. There's just a lot of unanswered questions here. Perhaps marbles is just such a stupid game it should have never been invented and nobody would have ahd to play it & we wouldn't wondering about all tose marbles. Those marbles would be something else like grapes or olives that somebody could eat.

You seem to be implying that the Israelis would be stupid to trade a thousand murderers for one of their own soldiers. in terms of potential threat to Israel, yes, it would be a heavy price, especially becaseu all of them would immediately pack on a few bomb vests and resume murdering Israelis.
But Hamas knows how valuable an Israeli life is to Israel, and "prices" their prisoner accordingly.

i have been on a quite a few Arab websites, one especially where a lot of them expressed wistful appreciation for the way Israelis protect their own people and value their lives. They wished their own leaders would value them the same way!

What i really dont' like here is the trivialisation of human life you'e drawn. Marbles to symbolise flesh and blood humans, even though most of them will happily suicide bomb their way to an Islamic Paradise?

Come on!

And I don't quite understand the comment by Jillian C York. "racist" israelis? For valuing their own soldier?
And considering setting free a thousand murderers who think nothing of targeting civilains with a bunch of boms in civilian areas?
It's the Islamist fanatics of Hizbollah and Hamas who declare all the time that they "love death" as the Israelis "love life" and that's why they will win!! They're the ones stealing resources from their own people to kill their way to an Islamic state! Thaty've already driven out most of the Christians from Gaza and keep on killing Jews, plus theor own people who want peace!

This swap is a horrible dilemma for Israel – congratulations on showing the petty nastiness of your "perception".
