Fatah TV airs cartoon shows Jews conspiring with the devil

Program for kids characterizes Jews as untrustworthy, driven by fear and jealousy of Muhammad and his followers

A cartoon recently aired on a Fatah-owned Palestinian TV station showed Jews siding with the devil to fight Muslims and the Muslim prophet Muhammad.

In one of the episodes of the show, the devil explains to another demon that he could not make the Jews fight Muhammad and his followers, because the hearts of the Jews were filled with fear. The clips were translated by Israel-based NGO Palestinian Media Watch.

Another episode shows three Jews conspiring to fight against Muhammad. The character of the devil can be seen hovering behind the Jews as they conspire. The three are drawn in accordance with typical anti-Semitic tropes: long noses, beards and a proclivity to conspire.

In a segment from the third episode, a character explains that Muhammad and his men are digging a trench near the northern edge of the city of Medina to defend it against the Kuraysh tribe – a Jewish tribe that had a treaty with Muhammad.

According to the teachings of Islam, the tribe broke its treaty and Muhammad defeated them in a battle, after which he killed all the men in the tribe.

A character in the cartoon explains that the Jews cannot be trusted to keep to the agreements they sign.

A senior official in Fatah, which is headed by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, was also criticized last month for telling Palestinian news site Donia al-Watan: “Wherever you find an Israeli, slit his throat.”
