PA daily cartoon demonizes Israel
as a bloodthirsty Jew
by Itamar Marcus
The official Palestinian Authority daily published a cartoon yesterday that depicts Israel as a demonized religious Jew holding a knife dripping with blood.
Palestinian Media Watch has documented the ongoing PA policy to demonize and promote hatred of Israel.

The message of the cartoon is to criticize the United States. President Obama is shown reading a newspaper and reassures the Jew that the American media has not reported on the crime he has supposedly committed with the bloodied knife.
Text on sleeve of Jew: "Israel"
Text on newspaper: "American media"
Obama to Jew (Israel) holding a knife dripping with blood:
"Don't be afraid. There are no pictures or articles about you."
The cartoon originally appeared in the Al-Khaleej newspaper (United Arab Emirates).
