      Fear not animated little man who is closely followed by a gigantic hand blocking his path whenever he tries to pass stroll in to others territory without a passport need not worry; George Galloway, the UK sharia boys and assorted socialists are to the rescue with Viva Palestinia! Actually on second thoughts, what has this animated little man done to deserve this? Destroy the gigantic Zionist hand of obstruction!

      I wonder if we can find a Palestinian film maker portraying the plight an animated Israeli having to go in to bomb shelters because war sirens are going off, as the one of the militias have launched a rocket (for the several thousandth time) at their area?

      If anyone can find such a thing, I’ll give them a million.

      Marvin,
      It would make for a piss-poor cartoon, no wonder you can’t find one like that. This one is simply brilliant, accurate, unbiased and factual.No wonder you hate it!

      What, a gigantic hand preventing an innocent Palestinian from entering Egypt for absolutely no reason at all?

      Where does it explain the reasons for blockades? Without any background it seems that the obstacle preventing this person is doing it out of pure malice.

      No mention of Hamas and Islamic Jihad murderers trying to get as many weapons as possible (through Egypt) and kill as many Israelis as possible, was there? So how does this explain the blockades? No context WHATSOEVER!

      F**king awesome cartoon. Puts the point across beautifully.

      I liked the cartoon aesthetically, nice music. But the plot needs a lot more work. It’s a bit samey. The big zionist hand etc. Why is the hand there? What’s the motivation that controls the giants’ hand? Why would he prevent this little man from freely travelling across another countries territory?

      That sounds like trying to ‘explain’ the work of terrorists to me marvin!

      I suppose if someone then tried to justify attack on American troops in Iraq you’d also accept that.

      Actually, don’t answer that. I knew what you had written before I even read it. Your predictability is all too boring. You’re simply an apologist for state oppression.
