Israel depicted as octopus in official PA daily cartoon

Cartoon published in the official PA daily

Text on cartoon in English and Arabic: “Israel…”

The cartoon shows an octopus towering over the rubble of destroyed homes and wearing a military helmet on which is an Israeli flag and the word “Israel” written in Hebrew with a typo. One of the octopus’ arms ends in the shape of a smoking gun barrel, while another is in the shape of a backhoe used in construction, a third is in the shape of what appears to be a sword, and a fourth is in the shape of a crane with a house suspended from it, apparently indicating Israeli “settlements” being established in place of the destroyed homes.
