PA cartoon: US rejoices at Palestinian civil war

Cartoon depicting Uncle Sam (Symbolizing the US) rejoicing while watching masked men attacking each other (Representing Hamas and Fatah) on a television, while a Arab man (representing the Arab world) beside him cries at the sight. 

Note: This cartoon was published weeks after the Hamas takeover of Gaza. In June 2007, Hamas defeated Fatah in a civil war in Gaza. Since then, Hamas has ruled in Gaza, while Fatah continues to rule in the West Bank. The mutual hatred is very deep, and this animosity has become the dominant issue in Palestinian society.
