Default Israeli mag sacks cartoonist for Netanyahu-as-pig drawing

Israeli mag sacks cartoonist for Netanyahu-as-pig drawing

JERUSALEM -- Israel's union of journalists says a Jerusalem-based magazine has laid off a cartoonist for an image rendering Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Likud lawmakers as pig characters from George Orwell's "Animal Farm." The Union of Journalists in Israel said on Wednesday that Avi Katz, a freelance cartoonist for the Jerusalem Report, was dismissed after the cartoon ran in the magazine's edition this week.

The cartoon was meant to criticize the Israeli government's passage of a controversial law enshrining the state's Jewish character.
