PA TV Tribute to the ideal men - Saddam and Arafat

PA TV Tribute to the ideal men -Saddam and Arafat

"Only...because we love the men"

by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook
Palestinian Media Watch
As part of an official Palestinian Authority (PA) TV program reporting on the uniform PA condemnations of the hanging of Saddam Hussein, PA TV focused on the following giant street poster with the faces of Saddam Hussein and
Yasser Arafat:

The giant text at the bottom of the poster reads: "Only ... because we love the men."
The small text on top of the poster is a quote from the Quran describing ideal men, those who fight without fear for Allah until death and others who are still waiting for death in battle:

"Of the believers are men who are true to their covenant with Allah. Some of them have paid their vow by death (in battle), and some of them still are waiting."


Saddam Hussein and Yasser Arafat were close allies, and Iraq under Saddam was a great benefactor of the Palestinians. The Palestinian Authority was firmly behind Iraq in the war with the US, and the PA-controlled media have supported the insurgence against US soldiers. The PA hatred of the US has been expressed in regular media attacks, including calls to kill Americans.
This hatred is likewise expressed graphically through political cartoons in the tightly-controlled PA press.

The PA media which is expressing identification with Saddam and hatred of the US is not Hamas media, but remains under the control of PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
