Video: Former New Zealand Herald cartoonist showcases anti-Zionist work (that cost him his job)

This short 10min film about Malcolm Evans, the former editorial cartoonist for the New Zealand Herald. During his six years at the paper, he was twice awarded the New Zealand Cartoonist of the Year.

But back in 2005, Evans was dismissed following complaints over several anti-Zionist cartoons, and his subsequent refusal to stop publishing cartoons on the Israel-Palestine conflict. The video showcases his art along with many of the cartoons about Zionism that the New Zealand Herald refused to publish.

Food for thought: Anti-Zionism does not equal antisemitism.
