Antisemitic Fatah cartoon: Jews are blowing up the Muslim world – "Let Sunnis and Shi'ites blow up together!"

Cartoon published on the website of the Fatah Commission of Information and Culture



Headline: “Let them blow up together!”


The cartoon shows a long-nosed Jew with an Israeli flag on his arm lighting a fuse to blow up a bomb. Inside the bomb, a Shi'ite Muslim and a Sunni Muslim are lighting fuses to blow up each other.  The cartoon expresses the libel that Jews/Israel seek to destroy the Muslim world, and are taking advantage of the internal Muslim fighting to do so. The cartoon is also critical of the Muslim world, which is depicted as so focused on killing each other that they do not see the Jews taking advantage of their in-fighting to kill them.
