 The child Handala was created by the artist and cartoonist Naji Al Ali who was assassinated in London on 29 August 1987.  Handala was born 10 years of age and will always be 10 years old until he returns to his home land. He is poor and bare footed like many children of Palestinian refugee camps. His hands are clasped behind him as in rejection. He is a simple but tough child known by all Palestinians, he represents identity and defiance.
