Khawaja, on hunger strike for more than three months, is well but still continues his fast to protest a life sentence, his lawyer said.

What could be more precious? Children from Palestinian prisoners wearing t-shirts with my cartoon

Yesterday, in the Palestinian city of al-Bireh, a group of children of Palestinian prisoners visited several diplomatic missions in order to expose the difficult situation of their parents in Israeli jails. The children are wearing t-shirts with one of my Palestine cartoons. Such a great honour for me!
