Palestine is “From the [Mediterranean] Sea to the [Jordan] River” in cartoon against Trump peace plan

Cartoon posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

Text at top of cartoon: “From the [Mediterranean] Sea to the [Jordan] River”

The cartoon shows a man with a keffiyeh (Arab headdress) around his neck lying on the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas. The man is covering the entire map with his body, from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. One of the man’s legs is crossed over the other, showing the sole of his sandal on which is written: “The deal of the century” – referring to US President Donald Trump's Middle East peace plan, which he revealed together with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Jan. 28, 2020. In Arab culture showing someone the sole of your shoe is considered an insult and scorn.
