NEW YORK- The official web site of the Palestinian Authoritys representative in Argentina is displaying a blatantly anti-Semitic cartoon, in which U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan is shown performing in front of a hooked-nose Jew with bags of money. (Jewish Telegraphic Agency, March 8, 2004)
The cartoon is just the latest example of the constant torrent of anti-Semitic incitement in the PAs official media.
Palestinian Media Watch recently reported that on February 6, 2004, PA Television broadcast an interview with Ahmad Nasser, Secretary of the Palestinian Authoritys Legislative Council, in which he said Israel, the State of Israel, is the Satans offspring, a Satanic offspring and cannot exist among human beings Nasser and the interviewer also discussed how Israels recent release of Arab terrorist prisoners was part of the Jewish conspiracy described in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
The Protocols is a notorious 19th-century anti-Semitic forgery manufactured by the Czarist Russian authorities to expose a secret Jewish plot to conquer the world.
Morton A. Klein, National President of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), said: The PAs continual broadcast of such blatant anti-Semitism shows once again that the Palestinian Arab war against Israel is not just a battle over land, but is motivated by hatred of Jews as Jews. We call on all Jewish organizations to publicly condemn this continuing, vicious Palestinian Arab anti-Semitism, which promotes real hatred of Jews and encourages violence against Jews.
