Tallil Abdellatif 


While checking my Blogpatrol stats, I found out that a lot of people Googling for Tallil Abdellatif are ending up at my May 23, 2006 post on Hamshahri's Holocaust cartoons contest. (Whatever happened to that contest, by the way?)

To put the searches in context, here are excerpts from that post:


IranCartoon.com has published a list of participants, by country, in their contest:

The list of Participants in
International Cartoonet Festival
About Danish Cartoons and Holocaust...

Morroco
Derkaoui-Abdellah
khalil Khay
Brahim Bougharraf
Naji Benaji
AASSID Houcine
Tallil Abdellatif
Brahim BOUGHARRAF
Abdelmalek Lahlali
Abdelghani Jekki



Tallil's contributions to this contest are here, here, and here. The most popular of the three cartoons is this one:



Here are some of the comments that have been received on this particular cartoon:

Civil war is universal when you hit a people down again and again and give it no hope for justice. Very good cartoon.
From: Ari (Mon 18 Sep 2006 06:45:01 PM EDT)
Brigitte Meier, exactly WHO has been hitting down on Israel all the time if not the Arabs?? Anyway, the Guernica bombing was perpetrated by Franco's fascists so cut your antisemitic bullshit!!!



If nothing else, the comments area displayed (for once) the CORRECT use of the word "Fascist." For this, the cartoon contest should be praised.

en tant que cartoonist je déclare ma solidarité à la liberté d'expression et j'espére que Les fanatiques arabo-musulmans devraient rester hors des salles de la liberté de la presse, basées sur des traditions liberales et arrêter de saisir sur l'occasion de diriger la colère des citoyens submergés dans l'analphbétisme , l'ignorance et la pauvreté causé par la politique aveugle des régimes dictateures arabo-musulmans .
en tant que cartoonist il m'est nessicaire d'exprimer mon opinion sur ce débat des fanatiques Islamistes radicaux appelant à travers leurs chaines arabe à "châtier" tout auteur de la caricature qui ose, selon eux, insultent les symbols de l islam et d'en punir les auteurs et les instigateurs … Dans l'affaire actuelle, il est nécessaire de ramener les faits à leur juste dimension , je me demande pourquoi les régimes dictateures arabo-musulmans intérdisent tout mouvement de protéstation fasse à l'obscurantisme et l'intégrisme islamiste,la réponse est simple toute protestation fasse à L'échec des régimes arabe dictateures, la corruption ,l'absence totale de la liberté d'expression ,la croissance de l'intolérance dans de notre pays arabo-musulmans est sans pitié
puni .
les enterprises déguisés des dictateurs dans plusieurs pays riches du Moyen-Orient demandent que Les produits du Danemark doivent etre également boycottés sous prétexte que L'Islam interdit toute description du Prophète en saisissant sur l'occasion d'imposer leurs produits de leurs enterprises qui souffre de mauvais marketing devant plusieures produits importés.
Le porbléme c'est la communauté européenne dont les valeurs de la
démocratie présente de l'aide à ces dictateurs arabo-musulmans qui opprime sans pitié les défendeurs de la liberté d'expression au monde arabe .
Oui, on a le droit de caricaturer Dieu dériere lequel cachent les régimes dictateures arabo-musulmans et l'intégrisme islamiste leurs fleaux visage , Les peuples ont le gouvernement qu'ils n ont pas choisi quand ils peuvent choisir. C'est le cas dans un pays dominé par une religion où le chois de la laïcité est intolerable …
En fin moi comme Cartoonist qui ai toujours habitué de pousser la « ligne rouge » le plus loin possible et aussi pour mission de défendre certaines valeurs humanitaire , je trouve que ce tourbiant soufflé par les fanatiques me donne la force de refuser la soumission et l'abêtissement, encore une autre fois non au terrorisme et j'encourager la liberté d'expression et la pratique du journalisme en liberté dans le monde entier malgré les pressions , les menasses …
Le droit de dire, d'écrire, de photographier et de dessiner ce qu'on veut dans le cadre de la loi n'existe pas et doit exister– sans condition . Les autorités surveillent et contrôlent tout le contenu, et ne permettent aucune critique du gouvernement pour concerver notre people dans l'obscurantisme islamiste ce que assure leur continuation … Les gouvernements arabo-musulmans n'arretent pas à incarcérer des journalistes et d'autres personnes qui expriment des vues critiques ..
les forces de l'Agence de sécurité interne , l'intégrisme, les régimes dictateures arabo-musulmans sont les vrais predateures de la liberté d'expression dans notre monde arabe



Here's a Babelfish translation:


Posted by tallil abdellatif the 09/02/2006 12:48 as a cartoonist I declare my solidarity with the freedom of expression and I espére that the fanatics arabo-Moslems should remain out of the rooms of the freedom of the press, based on traditions liberales and stop seizing on the occasion to direct the anger of the citizens submerged in the analphbetism, ignorance and poverty caused by the blind policy of the modes dictateures arabo-Moslems. as a cartoonist it is to me nessicaire to express my opinion on this debate of radical the islamist fanatics inviting through their chains Arab "to punish" any author of the caricature which dares, according to them, insult the symbols L Islam and to punish the authors and the instigators of them... In the current business, it is necessary to bring back the facts to their right dimension, I wonder why the modes dictateures arabo-Moslems intérdisent any movement of protestation makes with the obscurantism and the islamist integrism, the answer is simple any protest makes with the failure modes Arab dictateures, the corruption, the total absence of the freedom of expression,la growth of intolerance in our country arabo-Moslems without pity is punished. the disguised enterprises dictators in several rich countries of the Middle East require that the products of Denmark must be also boycotted under pretext that Islam prohibits any description of the Prophet while seizing on the occasion to impose their products of their enterprises which suffers from bad marketing in front of imported produced plusieures. The porbléme it is the European Community of which values of the democracy present of the assistance to these dictators arabo-Moslems which oppresses without pity the defendants of the freedom of expression in the Arab world. Yes, there is the right to caricature God dériere which hide the modes dictateures arabo-Moslems and the islamist integrism their fleaux face, the people have the government that they N did not choose when they can choose. It is the case in a country dominated by a religion where the chois of secularity is intolerable... In end me as Cartoonist which always accustomed to further push the "red line" possible and also for mission of defending certain values humanitarian, I find that this tourbiant puffed up by the fanatics gives me the force to refuse the tender and abêtissement, still another time not at terrorism and I to encourage the freedom of expression and the practice of journalism in freedom in the whole world in spite of the pressures, carried out them... The right to say, write, photograph and draw what one wants within the framework of the law does not exist and must exist without condition. The authorities supervise and control all the contents, and any critic of the government for concerver our people in the islamist obscurantism does not allow what their continuation ensures... The governments arabo-Moslems do not arretent to imprison journalists and other people who express critical sights. the forces of the Agency of safety interns, the integrism, the modes dictateures arabo-Moslems are truths predateures of the freedom of expression in our Arab world


Interestingly enough, this gallery states that Tallil Abdellatif is from Libya, not Morocco. It boggles the mind that someone celebrating freedom of expression would move TO Libya, but that just shows what I know.
