'Each of Mohammad Sabaaneh s powerful drawings is like a gut punch that gets straight to the essence of the stark reality of Palestinian life under Israeli occupation. This is how an artist resists.' Joe Sacco, author of Palestine;'Incisive artwork ... multi-layered.' Mint Press News;'Art manages to impart what can easily be lost or given less importance within mainstream media. Palestine in Black and White is an intense communication of Palestinian life; bludgeoned, displaced, yet still resisting ... Sabaaneh goes beyond the usual symbols associated with the Palestinian anti-colonial struggle [and] depicts Palestine's open wounds as a collective experience.' Middle East Monitor;'Narrates real stories of Palestinians' The Daily Star Lebanon;'Sabaaneh's moving and incisive cartoons are urgent and necessary reminders of what life is like under an ongoing and agonizing occupation.'

Bookblast Top Ten Reads for Independent Minds, Feb 2018;'The cartoons themselves cry out for a different future where both occupied and occupier can break out of their current patterns and frames, past walls and ribbons, into a freer life.' Marcia Lynx Qualey, Qantara;'Mohammad Sabaaneh produces sharp, incisive cartoons. His tenacity and courage are an inspiration for cartoonists around the world.' Matt Wuerker, Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist at Politico;'Mohammad bravely uses his great talents as a cartoonist to work in the midst of this [Israeli/Palestinianian] political minefield. Mohammad has earned the respect and admiration of many in the global cartoon community.' KAL, The Economist;'If you want to get a smart Palestinan's view of what s happening in the Middle East, you can't do better than look at Mohammad Sabaaneh's cartoons.' Victor Navasky, The Nation; 'Brings together one hundred of Sabaaneh's most striking works that do not flinch from revealing the reality that confronts Palestinians.' Nasher News;`Hard-hitting cartoons ... offer a candid view of Palestinian experience.' The Church Times; `Glimpses of hope ...
