Today's Cartoon: Two Kidnapped Fox New Journalists Released

Regardless of what people may think of FOX News, the release of two of it's journalists kidnapped in Gaza almost two weeks ago is definitely "great news". It's great because nobody got hurt... and because it allows me more freedom to draw a cartoon "directly" about it; now that I have the peace of mind in knowing that the situation has concluded peacefully :)

Unfortunately though, it probably will not be the last time something like this happens in the Middle East (and especially in Gaza). Now that this Palestinian group has decided (or was convinced) to release their two prisoners, they will obviously be expecting something for it in return; and while I somehow doubt it will involve the release of all Muslim prisoners from American prisons (as they originally demanded), I'm pretty sure that it's probably something a lot more substantial than the satisfaction of forcing their captives to convert to Islam at gunpoint.

Either that or the recruitment drive for "Jihadists" must be about on par with America's recruitment drive to find soldiers to fight them.
