"Considering the recent continuous Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip, many cartoonists asked to launch a site inorder to put their work on display," Shojaii Tabatabaii explained.

He also remarked, "We have received many requests from across the globe about launching sites in the coming year, especially from Brazil, indicating how much Christian artists are paying attention to the people of Gaza."

"The website is in the post-production stage and the works will later be published in a book," he concluded.
