(JNS.org) The official Palestinian Authority (PA) newspaper, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, published a cartoon this week that depicts Israel as a religious Jew holding a knife dripping with blood.

The message of the cartoon, which represents the latest attempt by the Palestinian media to demonize Jews, is to criticize the United States by implying that President Barack Obama and the American media are afraid to publish negative press about Israel. Obama says to the Jew in the cartoon: “Don’t be afraid. There are no pictures or articles about you.”

The cartoon originally appeared in the Al-Khaleej newspaper (United Arab Emirates).
