Baha Al-Bukhari was a cartoonist for Al-Ayyam newspaper. Some of his cartoons encouraged Palestinian violence against Israelis and reinforced PA libels against Israel and Jews. In October 2015, PA Chairman Abbas awarded Al-Bukhari with the Palestine Order of Merit for Culture, Sciences and Arts, explaining that his work “fits Palestine and its resolute and full culture.” Al-Bukhari died on Oct. 29, 2015.
