PA’s antisemitic cartoon claims that Israel wants to control “from the [Atlantic] Ocean to the [Persian] Gulf”

Cartoon published in the official PA daily

Text on cartoon: “Israeli flag”

The cartoon shows an Israeli soldier with a large nose saying: “It’s not true that [the blue stripes on the Israeli flag] mean ‘from the Nile [River] to the Euphrates [River]’. They mean ‘from the [Atlantic] Ocean to the [Persian] Gulf’.”

The cartoon refers to the recent Israeli peace agreements with the UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan, which the PA is portraying as an Israeli attempt to take control of the entire region. A common PA libel is that the two blue stripes on Israel’s flag represent Israel’s goal of expanding Euphrates to the Nile.
