There was an interesting debate in Al-Ghad the other day about one of Emad Hajjaj’s latest caricatures which some Christians found offensive. Portraying Gaza as a female crucified on an Israeli cross, that is in reality an electricity pole.

I couldn’t find an online copy of what was said but I suppose the arguments are quite clear with some of them being reflect on his website (although unedited). Some Christians even argued that there was nothing wrong with it while others made reference to the Mohammad cartoons.
I thought it was an interesting bit of controversy in light of all that’s happening Gaza right now, especially with Al-Ghad taking out a whole page to discuss a provocative caricature, courtesy of Hajjaj.
But as far as this post and this blog goes, I wanted to see what you, the readers thought about it.
