Fatah cartoon: Israel, depicted as an Orthodox Jew, murders innocent Palestinians and complains to a sympathetic world that it’s being attacked

Cartoon posted on the website of Fatah’s Information and Culture Commission

Headline: “Scamming the world!”

The cartoon shows a man with money in his pocket holding up a frame in the style of National Geographic. An ultra-Orthodox Jew with a large Star of David on his shirt is seen in the frame, crying over his wounded finger. The man holding the frame is crying as well while looking at the Jew. Outside of the frame the Jew is holding a smoking assault rifle and standing with a foot planted on bleeding bodies on the ground, above which is written “Gaza,” with the Dome of the Rock seen in the background. The cartoon appears to be implying that the world is giving sympathy and money to Israel and treating it as a victim while ignoring its actions.
