Patrick Chappatte is a Pakistani-born Swiss-Lebanese political cartoonist. After the Charlie Hebdo and November attacks in Paris, Chappatte was turned to for some political "humor." You can say a lot in a small amount of space.
Back in 2010, Patrick gave a TED talk about political cartoons.
You can find an archive of Patrick's work here, and you can now find his work regularly in the New York Times.
When I hear from people that religion doesn't hurt anything, I say, really? Well besides wars, the Crusades, the Inquisitions, 9-11, ethnic cleansing, the suppression of women, the suppression of homosexuals, fatwas, honor killings, suicide bombings, arranged marriages to minors, human sacrifice, burning witches, and systematic sex with children, I have a few little quibbles. And I forgot blowing up girl schools in Afghanistan.
