WorldNetDaily: Palestinians laugh at American deaths
Cartoon mocks memorial of GIs killed in downing of helicopter.
In a continuing blitz of what some analysts call “new” anti-Semitism targeting Americans, the official Palestinian daily newspaper published a cartoon deriding U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq.
The cartoon featured in Al Hayat Al Jadida, according to Israel-based Palestinian Media Watch, mocks a memorial built to honor 15 American soldiers killed in the downing of a U.S. helicopter Sunday. It was juxtaposed in the paper next to a photograph of the actual memorial. The American tribute consists of U.S. military rifles, helmets and boots assembled in a row to represent each slain serviceman.
The Palestinian caricature of the memorial shows helmets perched atop of rifles with purported “quotes” of coalition officials next to each helmet:
“We will imprison Saddam soon”
“Casualties are relatively low”
“The uprising is weak and desperate”
“International forces are needed”
Itamar Marcus, with Palestinian Media Watch, reports the ridicule of American troop deaths in Iraq is an increasingly common theme in the Palestinian media.
The publishing of the latest cartoon coincided with Veterans Day in the U.S.
Looks like Ramadan is a 30 day ticket for Palestinians to feel superior – however, the ethnocentrism and perceived superiority of this obviously unevolved culture only serves as a band-aid to cover up what must be an embarassing acknowledgement that they have contributed absolutely nothing to civilization since Arafat invented the term “Palestinian” in 1964.
