In honor of Veterans' Day, Palestinians mock our dead in Iraq

Stupid they are not
from Palestinian Media Watch
The official Palestinian Authority [PA] daily has used this picture of a memorial to dead American soldiers in Iraq to mock them (and us all).

The somber memorial with rifles and helmets for each soldier killed,
was built after the downing of a US helicopter in Iraq killing 15 Americans.

Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, November 11, 2003 -
This is the Palestinian cartoon that appears in today's
official Palestinian Authority daily, Al Hayat Al Jadida,
including these "quotes" next to each helmet:

"We will imprison Saddam soon"

"Casualties are relatively low"

"The uprising is weak and desperate"

"International forces are needed"

Sunday's Al-Hayat Al-Jadida had these two cartoons:

self-explanatory, yes?

(text on scroll ~ "the European poll")
Evil Jooooos as a general universal threat,
as per the recent Eurobarometer poll
which found that 59% of Europeans see Israel as threat to world peace

David Olesker's presentation at the Boulder JCC yesterday was fabulous! One of his suggestions was to promote sources such as Palestinian Media Watch and MEMRI to your local newspaper.

If there is any way to get Olesker to your campus or town, I recommend him quite highly. He knows what we should be doing, and how, like no one I've ever encountered before.
