Israel as a pirate receiving US support

Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, the official PA daily, published a cartoon showing a pirate with a cutlass as a religious Jew with sidelocks and a fedora – representing Israel – supported by Uncle Sam, who stands behind him with his arm around his shoulder, next to an ATM machine. They are both standing in a pirate ship containing the Al-Aqsa Mosque, a church, Gaza and Israel’s separation fence. The usual skull on the Jolly Roger flag has been exchanged with a Star of David.
