PA daily cartoon: Netanyahu holds Dome of the Rock as captive
The cartoon shows Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu encircling the Dome of the Rock with his metal arms. The Dome of the Rock is surrounded by a wall and a checkpoint.
Text in cartoon: "The situation will remain as it is"
The text refers to Netanyahu's statement that he will maintain the status quo at the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza. The cartoon hints that the status quo is not sincere and that Israel wants the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza for itself. This echoes the PA libel that Israel plans to destroy the mosque in order to build the Temple.
