didnt like it - putting an israeli soldier vs women instead of a terrorist or an arab soldier - thats a bold political statement
this types of cartoons have a very strong impact on peoples minds and this "small" details make a huge difference

of course thanks for sharing it does have a nice general concept though and the drawings are nice - you post many good link so i allow myself to be straight forward negative when you post one like this i dont like and im pretty sure for non-israelis this issue isnt that obvious and slips away (except from the subconscious and thats the problem)
Please send merit to my dog named Mika who has passed away - thanks in advance

It's a great song and a dreamy idea. But human beings are really, really far from having no countries and no religion. Those are two of the strongest foundations of people's self identity. And as Buddhists, we should have some idea of how deep that goes!

Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world; by non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is an eternal law.

John Lennon's Imagine (concept) is very good. It reminds of me of this Simpsons' line.
