Cartoon Rehab: It’s Miller Time, Sort Of

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

Today’s cartoon is from Al-Watan (Qatar), from way back in May 13, 2003. The U.S. and Israel are shown eating from two sides of an apple that represents “the Arab states.” According to the middle-east-info.org, where we found it, this cartoon is noteworthy because it was published in Qatar, home to the Al Jazeera TV network. Qatar is considered by many in the U.S. State Department to be a U.S. ally and a relatively moderate state.

The first thing I had to do was remove the Israeli hat on the right and make this a contest between two Uncle Sam lookalikes. That took out the anti-Jewish bite, making the cartoon just a depiction of two ugly guys trying to get at something delicious.

Then I tried different objects they could fight over, including all manner of fruit and several different ice cream cones, with and without hot fudge pouring over it. But the beer was clearly the best option, especially since it came with the ready-made Miller’s commercial lines from the 1980s.

Welcome to the Jewish Press Online Cartoon Rehabilitation Project (JPOCRP), or, in short (suggested by our colleague Rafi Harkham) Cartoon Rehab. We collect the most obscene, terrifying, anti-Semitic cartoons from the Arab world, and make them nice. It’s a harsh process, requiring long sessions of Photoshop treatment and a minimum of 90 meetings in 90 days at Antisemitic Anonymous, but in the end it is well worth the effort. Cartoons come in with the obvious effects of the Antisemitism scourge, unshaven, bleary eyed, fangs exposed, noses hooked, and they come out clean and fluffy.

Please send us your own Photoshop efforts in rehabilitating Arab cartoons. We’ll publish those we deem appropriate enough (don’t worry, our standards are not so high). You can also send us wayward cartoons you found lurking online – as long as they come from the Arab world.

We have a special interest in beautifying this region which has so long been suffering from rampant addiction to Antisemitism. Help us do our little bit for Tikun Olam.

Cartoon Rehab: Toon Gets Tattooed

Friday, April 27th, 2012

This one took the Photoshop equivalent of plastic surgery. The depiction of both the vampire-like Jewish person and the dead child in his arms is so vile, I had to fix every little aspect of the image.

The man required a hair do, new lips, a smaller ear and a thorough nail clipping. The boy received new eyes and a huge, new smile.

I hope you got the joke (boy comes home from tattoo shop). I’m a bit concerned that so far I’ve only been able to turn these toons into innocuous, relatively boring “Family Circus” type drawings. I’d like to be able to go a little crazier with them, and I would appreciate your suggestions.

By the way, the more I get into these cartoons, the more I appreciate the talent of the Arab artists who create them, and wonder how much beauty and fun they could have brought into the world, if they didn’t devote their lives to hating me. It’s a little like those criminal masterminds who could do so well if only they applied their remarkable skills to positive work.

Of course, some criminal masterminds do apply their skills in conventional ways and go work on Wall Street, but that’s an entirely different discussion.

Cartoon Rehab: The Cleansing Power of Baseball

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

The trick with this nasty but very well drawn cartoon, in which the Jews are depicted as a creature reminiscent of Sigourney Weaver’s Alien, speaking to a wise, old Muslim sage, was to remove both religious symbols. Once those were out of the way, it became a cute setup for some sort of vaudeville-style sketch (“Who’s on first” comes to mind).

As soon as I started thinking Baseball, I went looking for helmets online, and the best fitting one had a nice Red Sox “B” on it – and then one thing led to another.

As usual, I would welcome different solutions, but for now, I believe this toon is ready to start its 90 meetings in 90 days at the nearest ASA (Anti-Semitic Anonymous) room.

Cartoon Rehab: Fixing the Crucifix

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

This cartoon, by Syrian artist Tishrin, was published September 22, 2011, and, to be fair, as anti-Israeli cartoons go it is relatively tame. The writing on the guy on the letter T-turned-cross says: “The Palestinian State.” Message: the Palestinians are being tortured by the Zionist-inspired US veto against their statehood.

But I was delighted by the opportunity to turn Tishrin’s clever (albeit kinda trite) use of the letter T as cross, into the letter T as clothesline.

Credit for finding this treasure goes to the ADL, which included it in their “Arab Cartoons Demonize the U.S.-Israel Relationship in Commenting on Palestinian Efforts to Gain U.N. Recognition.”

Cartoon Rehab: Oh, Go Ahead, Surrender, You Know You Want To…

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

We found this cartoon on the ADL website. They say it was originally published in Oman, April 12, 2012, and the original text, written in blood, says: “We Will Never Surrender.”
