Official Arab media cartoons: McCain and Obama in Israel's pocket

Bnei Brith's Anti-Defamation League published a report on editorial cartoons in the state-run Arab media. It's not pretty.
"From Gaza to Ramallah, from Bahrain to Damascus, from Cairo to Riyadh, the press has unleashed a fusillade of virulent anti-Jewish images accusing Senators Barack Obama and John McCain as handmaidens of the Jews or the Israel lobby," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "Once again, the Arab media does not miss an opportunity to promote classic anti-Semitic conspiracy theories of Jewish control over Washington, the media and the democratic process."

Mr. Foxman, who is currently in Israel, added: "Their aim is not to provoke discussion or challenge ideas, but to spread horrific stereotypes of Jews. Some cartoons also use classical racist stereotypes to portray Senator Obama."

He noted that ADL provided the report to the McCain and Obama campaigns, saying, "We are confident that the candidates reject these disturbing images and messages in these political cartoons from the Arab world."
But give the 'Palestinians' a state reichlet and the Arab and Muslim worlds will magically reverse their Jew-hating obsessions.

By the way, the cartoon at the top of this post is from the 'Palestinian Authority's al-Quds and it's called "Obama's view," while the cartoon at the right of this post is from Saudi Arabia's al-Watan and Arabnews.

I'm putting one more cartoon at the bottom of this post. It's from 'moderate' Bahrain's Akhbar al-Khalij. The bearded man is labeled: "Zionist Lobby" and has Senator Barack Obama in its pocket, and Obama has Senator Hillary Clinton in his pocket. There are many more examples here.

I find it amusing they think Jews control the world! Don't bother explain that if the Elders Of Zion really had a Mind Zapper TM, there wouldn't be an anti-Semitic cartoon to be found anywhere on the planet! Obviously the Jews are not THAT all powerful. 'Nother case of the Arab savages indulging in rampant Judeophobia.
