Title: Bashar Assad
: Jewish Bulletin of Northern Calif. (San Francisco)
Date: June 16, 2000
About this cartoon: The death of Hafez Assad of Syria rid the world of one of its most dangerous political figures. His untested (and hopefully less violent) optometrist son, Bashar, was quickly named as his successor.
Noteworthy: There were a few expressions of regret over Assad's death, but not many, in the world's media. This was a cartoon cited in my 2001 Rockower Award win.
