Cartoonist apologizes for Jew-rapes-West Bank cartoon as cartoon depicts woman unwilling to fight the Jew

"Bahaa' Yassin, the cartoonist who sparked a debate over the last few days, apologized for his actions... The social network is still raging with reactions that criticized the cartoon, which caused the Ministry of Interior in Gaza - run by the Hamas movement - to announce that it intends to 'take legal action against this cartoonist, who harms our people, its culture, its resistance, and its struggle.'"
