Carlos Latuff, Jew Guevara

Photo of Star of David on the famous cap of South-American legendary revolutionist Che Guevara is courtesy of Brazilian anti-Israeli cartoonist Carlos Latuff who comments on his website that he made it:
On behalf of brave Jews, in Israel and worldwide, and their struggle against Israeli oppression of Palestinian people and occupation of their territories
Attaching a Star of David to a famous leader was used by WW2 German propaganda to deliver quite an opposite message: that the famous leader (i.e. Roosevelt) is a puppet of “the Jews”.

This is the first photo of a Barbed Wire Star of David published on this blog. Picture is courtesy of cartoonist Carlos Latuff. Concerning the Star of David itself it denies access, in this case, from the other side as well. It’s the deep meaning of this symbol not to take sides, or to take both sides.

From Wikipedia: Carlos Latuff is a freelance political cartoonist, born in November 30, 1968, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil… Latuff has authored several comics about Middle East situations such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the Iraq War, mainly highly critical towards Israel and the United States while sympathizing with their opposition… in 2004, Latuff has made a series of seven cartoons, called Forgiveness, showing Arabs and Jews illustrated in reconciliation.

Carlos Latuff, Watch Tower

Carlos Latuff, Watch Tower jewish starPhoto is courtesy of Brazilian anti-Israeli cartoonist Carlos Latuff who has a very special way of seeing the Star of David – he looks at it as the shape of a Watch Tower. This is a unique simile, to the best of my knowledge. It reminds me of the Star Fort of Matara in Sri-Lanka.
