PLO cartoon shows child urinating on Statue of Liberty

The Green Lady is desecrated in a bigoted cartoon put out by the PLO/Hamas. As told in the following, from Israel National News (and Palestinian Media Watch, which has a whole list of PA cartoons that denigrated the Statue):
A Palestinian Authority child is depicted urinating on the Statue of Liberty in the May 25th issue of Al-Risala, a Hamas weekly newspaper, reported the Palestinian Media Watch.

In this week’s cartoon, the Statue of Liberty is holding a book entitled “Democracy”, but according to the Palestinian Media Watch, PA media has consistently targeted the Statue of Liberty in the past.

The Statue of Liberty, also known as Lady Liberty, is an internationally-recognized American symbol of freedom and democracy. Such ideas are an anathema to the PA; at a rally in March 2006, the newspaper Al-Hayat Al Jadida accused the West of “trying to penetrate Islamic youth with dubious things such as the ideas of democracy”.

Hamas is by no means the only PA party blasting the United States using caricatures, however. Newspapers linked to PA President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party have printed many such venomous cartoons.

Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Al-Quds and Al-Ayam newspapers have all pictured Lady Liberty as a terrorist, an arsonist burning down the world, a prostitute, and a prisoner of U.S. security agencies, among others.

The Palestinian Media Watch monitors Palestinian Authority publications, including news media and schoolbooks, among others. To see the PMW website, click here.
Let us be clear here: these are not friends, any more than the House of Saud are. They are as anti-American and anti-French as they are anti-Israel, and they are also utterly anti-democracy.
