For the UN to host that man's propaganda is as obscene as the propaganda itself.

He fits right in with the UN scumbags.

Interesting that CIF Watch calls him an "extreme left-wing political activist"

re: #3 Buck

That's the least of it. From his Wikipedia entry:

Accusations of Anti-Semitism

'Just following orders' by Carlos Latuff shows Nazi soldiers opposed to Israeli soldiers described as "born to kill". Text in the shape of a Nazi swastika says: "Israeli soldiers are just following orders".

Latuff has described his work as controversial.

In 2002 the Swiss-based Holocaust survivors organization Aktion Kinder des Holocaust sued the Indymedia of Switzerland on the charge of anti-Semitism for publishing Latuff's cartoon titled We are all Palestinians series in their website, which depicted a Jewish boy in Warsaw Ghetto saying: "I am Palestinian." The criminal proceedings were suspended by Swiss court.

In 2006, Latuff was placed second and won $4,000, for his cartoon comparing the Israeli West Bank barrier with the Nazi concentration camps, in the controversial Iranian 'International Holocaust Cartoon Competition'. Latuff's entry was described as "Holocaust inversion" by Manfred Gerstenfeld.

Latuff's cartoon titled "Alan Dershowitz Hard at Work", depicting Alan Dershowitz, the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard Law School who is known for his career as an attorney in several high-profile law cases and commentary on the Arab-Israeli conflict, masturbating over the killing of Lebanese citizens in 2006 Israel-Lebanon conflict, which illustrated an article by prominent anti-Zionist Norman Finkelstein, was criticized by Dershowitz as obscene.

In their 2003 Annual Report, the Stephen Roth Institute compared Latuff's cartoons of Sharon to "the antisemitic caricatures of Philipp Rupprecht in Julius Streicher's Der Stürmer." The SRI also complained over a cartoon showing Che Guevara in Arabic garb.

In an interview with the Jewish-American weekly newspaper The Forward in December 2008, Latuff responded to charges of antisemitism and the comparison to Streicher:

"My cartoons have no focus on the Jews or on Judaism. My focus is Israel as a political entity, as a government, their armed forces being a satellite of U.S. interests in the Middle East, and especially Israeli policies toward the Palestinians. It happens to be Israeli Jews that are the oppressors of Palestinians.…My detractors say that the use of the Magen David in my Israel-related cartoons is irrefutable proof of antisemitism; however, it’s not my fault if Israel chose sacred religious motifs as national symbols, such as the Knesset Menorah or the Star of David in killing-machines like F-16 jets."

Guy sounds like a real piece of work. And yeah the UN deserves all the criticism they get for inviting him.

Latuff was nominated on my blog for "Doofus of the Year." However he lost last year's title to "Queers for Palestine" and year before last to Neturei Karta.

Latuff on the Encyclopedia Dramatica.

Contains NSFW because ED is essentially the 4chan wiki, which means NOBODY IS SPARED.

Makes sense. Latuff's deviantART gallery has a number of explicitly pro-communist cartoons. Here's one, and another.
