Katz, in a brief comment to BuzzFeed News, said, “I’ve been completely overwhelmed by responses from Israel and the whole world.”

In further remarks to the Guardian, he commented that he had “thought the cartoon was relatively mild and my firing was idiotic, but I’m delighted to see the enormous support I’ve received over the last couple of days.”

A crowdfunder set up in the days since his firing has already raised 78,000 shekels ($21,000).
