Anti-American hatred in official PA daily’s cartoons

More anti-American hatred
in official PA daily’s cartoons

by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook

The official (PA) daily newspaper, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, has for years promoted anti-American hatred, often through the publication of hateful political cartoons. This tactic has continued in recent weeks with a new spate of anti-American cartoons.

In the first cartoon below, the US is portrayed as a menacing threat to the Arab world. America and Al Qaeda have sent the Grim Reaper, who is shown surrounded by piles of skulls in Iraq yet already searching for his next Arab victims. The second shows the US’s attempt to dominate the entire world, as Uncle Sam sits happily on top of the globe. The third cartoon continues the PA’s active support of Saddam Hussein and the insurgency in Iraq. It focuses on America’s high losses in the past month by replacing the stars of the American flag with skulls, while Uncle Sam stares at the flag and cries.

Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, which published these hate cartoons, is under the complete control of the office of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice praised Abbas last month: “We have great admiration for you and your leadership…You have the strong support of the US and a personal commitment from President George Bush” (AP and The Jerusalem Post, October 5, 2006).








Sign on pile of skulls on TV: “Iraq.”

Grim Reaper says: “This series is brought to you by America and Al Qaeda.”
