JERUSALEM – The Palestinian Authority’s official daily published a cartoon propagating the libel that Jews and Israel control the world by controlling the U.S.
The caricature, first publicized by Israeli NGO Palestinian Media Watch, features a miniature soldier with a Star of David on his helmet giving orders to a large Uncle Sam-type figure with blank eyes, apparently representing America.
The larger man’s hat is decorated with a modified American flag that has a six-pointed Star of David instead of the five-pointed star. Uncle Sam holds a basketball that doubles as a globe, and the soldier representing Israel is apparently directing him to slam-dunk the globe into a Star of David-shaped basket.
The message is clear: America might be seen as controlling the world but it’s Israel that’s calling the shots.
Last November, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah published a cartoon (see right) blaming Israel for the terror attack in Paris that killed 130 people.
More recently, Fatah’s Information and Culture Commission published a cartoon showing Israel orchestrating Muslim infighting between Sunnis and Shiites in order to destroy both groups.
On Saturday, Breitbart Jerusalem reported on another cartoon published by Fatah showing a yarmulke-wearing, hooked-nose Jew relaxing in an armchair etched with a Jewish Star of David while he uses a remote control to bomb buildings in Gaza.
