ATTENTION! King Hamad’s regime reacts about my cartoons on #Bahrain

According to a Twitter account supposedly held by the Information Affairs Authority (IAA) of Bahrain, of the regime of King Hamad, they are concerned about the “journalistic integrity” displayed in my cartoons. In the messages, IAA states that my drawings “tip over the limits” of what is considered freedom of speech. It’s curious that a government institution of Bahrain uses words like “integrity” and “freedom of speech”, which are values definitely not applied by Hamad’s regime.

According to a report by Amnesty International, an organization accorded a great deal of integrity, Bahraini authorities “had committed gross human rights violations with impunity, including the excessive use of force against protesters, widespread torture and other ill-treatment of protesters, unfair trials and unlawful killings.
