A Pen of Damascus Steel by Ali Farzat
The Political Cartoons of an Arab Master

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Ali Farzat is the dean of Arab political cartoonists. His caricatures do not spare wealth, influence, or power. They give hope to the disenfranchised, the poor, and the hungry. Farzat is an authentic Arab voice who nevertheless does not hesitate to buck the tide of majority opinion. (He has consistently disparaged Saddam Hussein, for example, and lauds the US for adopting his position that Saddam must go.) Farzat's work is a ringing cry for justice that cuts across all cultures.
