TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The Union of Journalists in Israel said on Wednesday that Avi Katz, a freelance cartoonist for the Jerusalem Report, was dismissed after the cartoon ran in the magazine's edition this week.
The cartoon was meant to criticize the Israeli government's passage of a controversial law enshrining the state's Jewish character.
It's captioned with Orwell's line: "All animals are equal but some are more equal than others."
Critics say the legislation, which defines Israel as a Jewish state and downgrades the Arabic language's status, marginalizes the country's Arab minority.
The Jerusalem Report didn't respond to requests for comment.
