Ranan Lurie: Israeli War Hero Who Set Records As the World’s Most Widely Syndicated Political Cartoonist

From a New York Times obit by Sam Roberts headlined “Ranan Lurie, Political Cartoonist With a Global Pen, Dies at 90”:

Ranan Lurie, an Israeli war hero and world peacemaker who set records as the world’s most widely syndicated political cartoonist, died on Wednesday in Las Vegas.

At his peak, Mr. Lurie’s evocative caricatures appeared in about 1,000 publications with more than 100 million readers in 100 countries….

He welded drawing and writing into a mightier-than-the-sword instrument that gave voice to his strongly-held political opinions and whose imagery, he said, conveyed even greater impact than photography.
