Official PA Newspaper Viciously Caricatures Tzipi Livni


While one arm of Abbas’s Palestinian Authority negotiates with Israeli Foreign Minister and Kadima party leader Tzipi Livni, another one viciously defames her. The illustration above is yet another example of the often two-faced output of the Palestinian Authority — one benign one for outsiders, the other a vicious one for its own people.

A Sept. 22 Palestinian Media Watch report by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook provided the caricature found in the official Palestinian Authority newspaper, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida.

PMW said:

The Palestinian Authority published a caricature today in its official newspaper, in which Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni is portrayed with a dagger and blood-stained hands next to a white peace dove with its head in a noose. As a result of Prime Minister Olmert's resignation and her election as leader of the Kadima party, Livni has been designated to to try to form the next Israeli government, and could be the next prime minister. Bottom text from right: "Gio-Kadima" This is a play on words: Livni's political party is called "Kadima." The original Italian name of Mona Lisa is "La Gioconda."
