For many, being a prig to your friends is easier than fighting your enemies.

This is a slightly edited version of a Duncan Macpherson cartoon in the Toronto Star, (March 18, 1978). Originally about Israeli reprisals for PLO attacks, it has a wider use which is why I took out the PLO/UN specific wording. Leaving aside the Middle East frame of the original, the cartoon remains, to my mind, the best visual snark on that breed of fool who is always quick to criticize a relatively good person for minor transgressions whilst looking the other way on the worse acts of worse people.

It blows my mind that you would even consider "editing" (defacing) a work by the greatest editorial cartoonist Canada has ever produced - my god you are arrogant and presumptuous beyond all measure.
