Bob Moran is a British cartoonist who does what a cartoonist is meant to do: satire.

People don’t understand satire anymore. It’s pretty clear. Furthermore, people are governed by their knee-jerk reactions, which is part of the psychological control mechanism.

Political satire from 1882
Political satire from 1882

A general and rather generic dictionary definition of satire is something along the lines of it being a genre of literature, art or performance that uses humour, irony, exaggeration or ridicule to expose and criticise people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.

Bob’s cartoon in question

In the context of political cartooning, satire is a technique used to comment on, criticise or mock political figures, events or ideologies through humour, exaggeration and irony. The artist will use visual metaphors and caricatures to highlight the absurdities or flaws in political policies, actions or personalities, aiming to provoke thought, entertain, or influence public opinion.

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.


Simply, it’s voicing an opnion through a cartoon.

Bob’s cartoon that broke the internet

As expected, social media melted after he shared this, with millions of frothing zombies shouting and swearing and aimlessly running in the streets and throwing their phones against innocent old women.

The best part is that the offendatrons had absolutely no idea why they were triggered.

All they knew is that the word ‘kosher’ is written above the Israeli Prime Minister, which obviously means something something antisemitic something something.

Here’s what The Jewish Chronicle published:

A disgraced former Telegraph cartoonist has sparked outrage after creating an ‘antisemitic’ cartoon of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu feasting on children under the word ‘kosher.’

Dismissed from The Telegraph in 2021, Moran now independently creates and sells pieces on his website, some fetching staggering sums.

Yesterday Moran was accused of ‘blood libel’ after he self-published a cartoon showing a bloodthirsty Netanyahu flanked by Joe Biden and Rishi Sunak.

The cartoon drew sharp criticism for its parallels with the medieval blood libel, a historical accusation that Jews murdered Christian children for ritualistic purposes. The Campaign Against Antisemitism denounced the artwork and stated, “Jew, children, blood, consumption, ritual. All the ingredients for a classic blood libel.”

A disgraced cartoonist?

Actually, the reason Bob left The Telegraph is because he took a principled stand against tyrannical Covid™ nonsense, as he explained to me in a previous conversation.

In my view, that’s honourable.

Also, imagine being reported to the police for drawing a cartoon in a Western country that proudly proclaims the sanctity of speech.

Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins.

Netanyahu is the vile individual

What Israel has done to Gaza

As Ilan Pappé explained in his conversation with me, the Israeli government imposed repressive measures against the Palestinian civilian population, attempting to change the status and demographic composition, which has included

  • violence,
  • collective punishment,
  • arbitrary detention,
  • deportation, illegal land acquisition and
  • exploitation of natural resources.

Israel also established a dual legal system, applying some of its laws only to Jewish settlers.

The occupation has led to the transfer of Israeli civilians into the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including Jerusalem, on illegally acquired Palestinian land, forming Israeli settlements.

Furthermore, the occupation has also resulted in the destruction of the Palestinian economic and social structure, transforming the West Bank and Gaza into ‘captive markets’ for Israel and causing a dependency on Israel for employment.

So, for clarity:

  • Israel invaded and occupied the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip in 1967.
  • Much of the world views these areas as ‘occupied territories’.
  • Israel imposed repressive measures and attempted demographic changes.
  • Israeli settlements in these territories violate the 4th Geneva Convention.
  • The UN has repeatedly condemned Israel.

Israel’s abysmal strategy

One must understand that Netanyahu’s objectives are:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has openly stated that he wants the people of Gaza to leave (so that Israel can take full control of the strip).

Is Benjamin Netanyahu guilty of blood libel?

You decide.

Here’s my conversation with Bob.

If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
