Carlos Latuff (born 30 November 1968) is a Brazilian freelance political cartoonist.[1] His works deal with an array of themes, including anti-Zionism, anti-globalization, anti-capitalism, and opposition to U.S. military intervention. He is best known for his images depicting the Israeli–Palestinian conflict and the Arab Spring events.

Some of Latuff's cartoons comparing Israel to Nazism have been accused of being antisemitic by the Simon Wiesenthal Center and some authors, especially his cartoons relating to the Holocaust.[2][3][4] Latuff has dismissed the charges of antisemitism as "a strategy for discrediting criticism of Israel."[5]

Early life

Latuff was born in the neighborhood of São Cristóvão in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil,[6] and is of Lebanese ancestry; in his own words he has "Arab roots".[1]
