Cartoon against US-led Bahrain Conference depicts Palestinian woman holding rifle saying to Trump, Netanyahu, and Arab leader: “What was taken by force will only be returned by force”

Official PA TV program The Content of the News, segment on cartoons

A cartoon is shown of a Palestinian woman, possibly pregnant, wearing a keffiyeh (Arab headdress) and holding a Kalashnikov assault rifle. The woman has an angry expression on her face and is towering over US President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – who has a Star of David on his back, and a cowering Arab Gulf state leader – possibly Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, who are all sitting at a table looking at the woman in surprise. Behind the table is a sign reading: “Manama Conference,” referring to a US-led conference in Bahrain in June 2019 focusing on economic aspects of Trump's Middle East peace plan. The woman is saying: “Palestine is not for sale, and what was taken by force will only be returned by force.”
