Evidently He Watched the Video

Michael Ramirez, as usual, gets to the heart of the “freedom flotilla” incident. It’s worth noting that the drawing on the right side of the panel could just about be a screen grab from a video of the pro-Palestinian thugs beating Israeli troops as they rapelled, one by one, on to the deck of the Mavi Marmara.

UPDATE: For those who didn’t understand what I was talking about, here is a screen grab–one of many that could have been chosen–from a video of the violence on board the Mavi Marmara that we posted last night. Ramirez obviously based his drawing on the facts of the incident:

Most political cartoonists just indulge their prejudices. Michael Ramirez actually knows what he is talking, or drawing, about.
