Pourquoi les caricaturistes israéliens ne dessinent pas le Prophète Muhammad - Al Monitor
Israeli cartoons have a storied legacy, but in Israel the limits on cartoonists are more restrictive from the outset than those in France. Criminal law in Israel forbids insulting the sensibilities of religion and ethics. While there are ways of skirting these prohibitions, it’s hard to believe that a senior cartoonist in Israel would want to directly insult Prophet Muhammad and that there would be an Israeli publisher who would agree to publish such a cartoon.
Yonatan Wachsmann (...) says that “in democratic countries cartoonists will always play a marginal role. In countries that are more dictatorial and with less freedom of expression, the role of the cartoonist will be more important and more central. From the standpoint of the audience as well as the government.”
“I wouldn’t draw cartoons about Muhammad,” declares Biderman, “not because I’m afraid or because of violent threats from radical Islam, but because the most basic rule in cartooning is to criticize your own tribe. Allah doesn’t interest me and Jesus doesn’t interest me. It’s not my business. If I have complaints, it’s toward the rabbis, some of whom are racist, outmoded, homophobic, corrupt. I also think there’s something strange about Charlie Hebdo’s cartoonists fixating on Muhammad. Of course I’m afraid, because my life is more important to me than a cartoon, but beyond that I don’t get the obsession. (...)”
