PA rebroadcasts antisemitic cartoon

In another example of antisemitism sponsored by the Palestinian Authority (PA), this week the PA rebroadcast an antisemitic cartoon from a Jordanian newspaper regarding the division of Sudan on official PA television. 

The cartoon had the headline “Division of Sudan,” and showed the distorted images of an American and a Jew toasting the division over barrels of Sudanese oil.

Despite the PA publicly welcoming the creation of South Sudan, Palestinian Media Watch has documented statements by PA officials who expressed opposition to its creation.

“In a letter to President Omar Hassan Al-Bashir, who is accused of responsibility for the genocide in Darfur, Abbas expressed his support for the President and stated that the Palestinian people and leadership ‘have complete faith in the wisdom of President Omar Al-Bashir’ and that they ‘support the unity of the land of Sudan and its people.’ [PA TV (Fatah), Nov. 28, 2010]”

Another PA document suggested the split of Sudan was an Israeli conspiracy:

“PA official Abd Al-Rahman, Director General of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ office, accused Israel of being involved in a conspiracy to divide Sudan, saying that ‘there are other conspiracies which the occupation (i.e., Israel) plans so as to cause a decrease [in attention] to the Palestinian cause and to turn it into a secondary matter with no priority, such as… the division of Sudan’. [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 4, 2011]”
