JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities on Saturday detained a Palestinian cartoonist on his way back to the West Bank from Jordan, according to his family.

Muhammad Abdul-Ghani Sabanah, 30, was detained at the Allenby Bridge crossing between Jordan and the West Bank, his brother Tamir told Ma'an, adding that Sabanah was in Jordan for a meeting.

He said that on his way back, Israeli troops detained Sabanah, who is from the Jenin town of Qabatia, without giving any explanation.

Sabanah's cartoons are widespread in the Arab world. He is well-known for his criticism through his cartoons, which focus mainly on the Palestinian people's problems and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

He works as a public information officer at the Arab American University in Jenin.

You cannot call this "detains". This gu has been kidnapped. That should be the right word used.

israel is criminal. israel puts people in jail for telling the truth whether Moslem, Christian, Jewish, israeli or Palestinian. He joins Anat Kamm and other journalists in jail. Unforturnately he will be abused much more than Anat Kamm. My heart goes out to Muhammad Abdul-Ghani Sabanah. Boycott israel especially Intel corporation.

The "only democracy in the Middle East" practising censorship - which they ridicule in other (read Muslim) countries.

To gabi #5 'The "only democracy in the Middle East" .' There's no point in flogging a dead horse. Treat Israel's claims to be a 'democracy' with the respect they deserve. Ignore them.
