Cartoon in PA daily shows Israel as a knife slitting Jerusalem’s throat

This cartoon was published under the title: “’Judaization’ of Jerusalem.” It depicts Jerusalem as a woman whose throat is being slit by two knives. One represents Israel and is marked with a Jewish Star of David. The second knife, bearing a Keffiyeh and a moustache, is marked with a “mute” symbol and represents the Arab world, who by their silence become active partners in Jerusalem’s destruction. Text on woman’s chest: “Jerusalem” Note: This cartoon was originally published in the United Arab Emirates newspaper Al-Ittihad.
