PA portrays terrorist who killed 7 people as a "lion"

Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning



During an interview with Brazilian anti-Israel cartoonist Carlos Latuff, one of his cartoons is shown. The cartoon shows terrorist prisoner and cancer patient Nasser Abu Hmeid, who was responsible for the murder of 7 people, depicted as a lion handcuffed to a hospital bed with “Nasser Abou Hmaid” written on it in English and a Palestinian flag covering his body in the style of a “Martyr” at funerals of Palestinian terrorists – Abu Hmeid’s nickname is “the masked lion,” hence his depiction as a lion. Abu Hmeid is crying and reaching out to his mother Um Nasser Abu Hmeid, who is the mother of 6 terrorists responsible for at least 10 murders. Um Nasser Abu Hmeid is crying on the other side of a glass window, in reference to how she was not allowed to touch Nasser Abu Hmeid while visiting him in prison on Jan. 7, 2022. Israeli prison guards are seen standing around Nasser Abu Hmeid with their arms crossed and stern expressions on their faces.
