Fatah TV cartoon: Jews sided with satans to fight Muhammad and the Muslims

Awdah TV, Fatah-run  |

3 episodes of the Egyptian series The Raids of Prophet Muhammad'

Muslim man: "Prophet [Muhammad] agreed [that the Jews] would leave with their possessions, but not their weapons, so they would not fight with the [weapons] again." 
Muslim boy: "So we drove them out without fighting. What a great victory...Praise and thanks to Allah..." 
Satan 1: "We (i.e., Jews and satans) suffered a defeat from one of the soldiers of Allah, who we have no power over." 
Satan 2: "What sort of soldier was it, my lord? I didn’t see any fighting in this raid." 
Satan 1: "It was ‘fear’ (i.e., Allah's soldier) that defeated the Jews and caused them to leave their lands [in Medina] in shame and disgrace, and it's what prevented me from going down to make them fight... Yes, satan. Don’t you see that my hands are shaking [from ‘fear’]? ..." 
Muslim man: "The Jews left while playing flutes and drums. How strange!" 
Muslim boy: "They did not want to show their frustration over the defeat, [and behaved] as if they had won. May Allah humiliate them."

Satan: "I’ve built my plan on the burning hate and loathing of Muhammad and his supporters, that fills the hearts of the Jews..." 
(Satan hovers above the Jews) 
Jew 1: "We [Jews] have lost our prestige because of Muhammad..." 
Leader of Jewish tribe: "We must return to Medina and harm Muhammad and his supporters... There are [Arab-Pagan] tribes that want to destroy Muhammad and the ones who want that the most are the Quraish and their allies... These tribes are not small and they have a major conflict with Muhammad. If they unite, it will be possible to destroy Muhammad." 
Jew 1: "And then we’ll return to Medina and go back to being prestigious leaders." 
Jew 2: "A wise idea." 
Leader of Jewish tribe: "So let us go to the tribes and prepare for the war with Muhammad."

Muslim boy 1: "I saw Prophet [Muhammad] digging [the trench] with his hands along with the Muslims..." 
Muslim boy 2: "Where were they digging?" 
Muslim boy 1: "North of Medina" 
Muslim boy 2: "Why?" 
Muslim boy 1: "Because mountains, gardens and date trees surround Medina from all sides except for the exposed northern side where we are digging the trench and the southern side where the Qurayza (Jewish tribe) live." 
Muslim boy 2: "Does the Prophet trust the Qurayza?" 
Muslim boy 1: "They have a treaty with him [the Prophet]." 
Muslim boy 2: "Since when do Jews keep their treaties? Have you forgotten the Qaynuqa and the Nadir?" 
Muslim boy 1: "I haven’t forgotten but I’m sure Allah will protect the Prophet."

Among the Arab pagan population of Medina, there were three Jewish tribes. In the year 625 Muhammad exiled the Jewish Qaynuqa and Nadir tribes. Soon afterward, he captured the Qurayza tribe and had the 750 male captives decapitated and the wives and children sold as slaves. Islamic tradition justifies Muhammad’s actions, teaching that the three Jewish tribes broke their treaties with Muhammad.
