Palestinian Authority Celebrates 9-11 Anniversary With Pro Bin Laden Cartoon

We all had our ways of observing the sixth anniversary of the 9-11 attack. The Palestinian Authority, under the authority of the "moderate" Mahmoud Abbas, observed the anniversary by publishing a cartoon extolling Osama Bin Laden. As reported by Palestinian Media Watch:

The Palestinian Authority continues a long tradition of celebrating the 2001 World Trade Center terror attacks by publishing cartoons in its official daily that glorify Osama Bin Laden and the attacks, or mock the suffering of the U.S. This year's cartoon shows Bin Laden smiling while making the ā€œVā€ for victory sign with two fingers in the shape of the burning Twin Towers. The PA daily that published the cartoon, Al Hayat Al Jadida, is owned by the PA and controlled by the office of Mahmoud Abbas. The only text on this cartoon is "Exclusive to Al Hayat Al Jadida," which means it was prepared specifically for the official Palestinian Authority daily.

For examples of how the Palestinian Authority has lauded Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda, and celebrated the attacks on our country, in the past, please read the entire bulletin from Palestinian Media Watch. Readers should keep in mind that we are not dealing here with a free and unfettered press, but rather a daily newspaper owned and controlled by the Palestinian Authority; the very organization with which Ehud Olmert, urged on by the Bush Administration, currently is negotiating wide-ranging territorial concesions in Yehuda, Shomron and Jerusalem, which would put Israel's entire population within easy rocket and mortar range, and expose every flight leaving Israel's Lod International Airport to the threat of surface-to-air missiles.
