In a recent episode of “On Contact,” Truthdig columnist Chris Hedges sits down with Palestinian cartoonist Mohammad Saba’aneh to talk about the state of affairs in Palestine, the central topic of Saba’aneh’s work. The cartoonist, who has had a piece showcased by the United Nations, draws inspiration for many of his cartoons from the time he spent in an Israeli prison.

Watch the conversation, which also covers President Trump’s recent decision to move America’s Israeli embassy to Jerusalem, in the video above.
