PA daily: Tzipi Livni with blood-stained knife

Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook  |

Caricature in official Palestinian Authority newspaper:



The Palestinian Authority published a caricature today in its official newspaper, in which Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni is portrayed with a dagger and blood-stained hands next to a white peace dove with its head in a noose. As a result of Prime Minister Olmert's resignation and her election as leader of the Kadima party, Livni has been designated to try to form the next Israeli government, and could be the next prime minister.
Bottom text from right: "Gio-Kadima"

This is a play on words: Livni's political party is called "Kadima." The original Italian name of Mona Lisa is "La Gioconda."
