Fatah party said to post cartoon linking Israel to Paris attacks
The Facebook page of PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party is said to have posted a cartoon implying that Israel is aiding the Islamic State group, which carried out a string of terror attacks in Paris Friday.
The cartoon shows Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu helping an Islamic State terrorist aim his machine gun from a perch on the Eiffel Tower.
The watchdog Palestinian Media Watch reports that it was posted to Fatah’s official Facebook page on Monday.
The cartoon is not new — it was posted to an official Iranian news site in the wake of a previous wave of terror attacks in France in January of this year.
It also participated in a contest for anti-Islamic State cartoons in Iran in May.
