I created and posted this cartoon October 25:

It struck a chord, and immediately went viral, being copied on other platforms, because it showed the immorality of the protesters who approved of or cheered the Hamas attacks on October 7 and what they really think. 

One person who re-posted this was comedian Amy Schumer on her Instagram with a short commentary:

There was an uproar and Schumer deleted it.

But let's look at the criticisms of my cartoon, since I chose my words carefully.

According to a report from, claims of Hamas militants sexually assaulting Israeli women are largely uncorroborated. The Los Angeles Times quietly removed a reference to rape in an opinion piece from Oct. 9, as there was no evidence for the claim. 

However, these accusations have become one of the leading allegations levied against Hamas, and by extension, Palestinian civilians. 

Schumer has since apologized for posting the comic, in an Instagram post featuring empty baby strollers with red heart-shaped balloons tied to the handles. 

“Hamas terrorists are who I’m talking about. No Gazans. Sorry I posted something that was hurtful to them. I’ll be more careful,” she wrote in the post’s caption. “I love my brothers and sisters in Gaza. I love Muslims. I love everyone.” says there were no rapes? When I click on the link, while it at first sad there is no solid evidence, it added two additional facts 

If you check, they added two updates to their original post - before this Daily Dot article was written! - saying that there was indeed evidence of rape. And since then more evidence has come to light. 

So that accusation against my cartoon was a lie. And the writer knowingly misrepresented what Factcheck wrote. 

Wajahat Ali wrote in The Daily Beast:

In a since-deleted Instagram post from Oct. 24, Schumer shared a single-panel comic that portrayed American pro-Palestinian supporters holding posters and signs that read “Gazans rape Jewish girls only in self-defense,” and “Proud of our rapist martyrs.” In addition to her outrageous and inflammatory claims, Schumer felt perfectly fine posting a cartoon that blamed all Gazans instead of Hamas, the militant organization that controls Gaza and was responsible for committing war crimes and killing 1,400 Israelis on Oct. 7. 
No, the cartoon didn't blame all Gazans. It blamed Gazans. There were many non-Hamas members - perhaps a thousand - who came out to murder, loot and rape Jewish civilians. Hamas itself claims, ignoring massive video evidence, that it did not do any atrocities - but other Gazans may have. Dr. Basem Naim said, "There are other Palestinian groups who became part of the operation, even ordinary people when they see the prison around Gaza Strip was broken, and the siege was open."

So that accusation against my cartoon is a lie and my words "Gazans rape Jewish girls only in self defense" is a pretty accurate if crude representation of the opinions of the many who defended the pogroms as Gazans defending themselves.  

Antisemite Marc Lamont Hill took a different tack, saying, "Amy Schumer had to take down an Instagram post she made where she was trying to chastise people for having any kind of nuanced position on the issue by making it seem as if they were pro-Hamas, pro-rape, pro-violence, and she was really reinforcing these really nasty, orientalist, racist ideas of Arabs in general and Palestinians in particular as rapists and violent."

The cartoon, as mentioned, was specifically about the protesters. And the protesters who chant "Globalize the intifada" and :"From the river to the sea" and "Khaybar, Khaybar ya yahud" and that terrorism is a legal right are indeed glorifying and promoting violence. They are openly pro-Hamas; they celebrated the attack before Israel retaliated. Sorry, there is no nuance behind saying Palestinians may "resist - By Any Means Necessary."  It means what it says - rape included. 

So that accusation against my cartoon is a lie. 

The cartoon itself did not say that Arabs in general or Palestinians in particular are rapists and violent.

So that accusation against my cartoon is a lie. 

It's funny how so many people had so many problems with my cartoon and yet not one of them is true. 

If you want to see more of my cartoons, poster and memes, I've been putting them on Instagram for a couple of years now, and there are over 600 of them!
