Libel: Jews dig under Al-Aqsa

Al-Aqsa TV, Hamas  |

Opening scene: An Arab naps in the plaza facing the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The scene moves underground, directly beneath Al-Aqsa, to reveal two stereotyped religious Jews and an Israeli soldier.

Jew 1 [digging]: "Dig! Dig!"

Jew 2: "Keep digging, but slowly, so the Arabs and Muslims won't wake up."

Israeli soldier laughing: "What Arabs? They're asleep. The Arabs and Muslims are all asleep. Keep digging, pal, don't worry."

Jew 1: "True. What Arabs? They're asleep. [The Jew swings his pickaxe.] Dig!"

The digging causes an enormous crack in the ground, which travels all the way up to sleeping Arab and awakens him.

Text on screen: "Al-Aqsa is in danger"
