Hamas student cartoon throws Star of David in the garbage

(JNS.org) A cartoon displaying a person whose body is painted with the colors of the Palestinian Authority flag throwing a Star of David into a garbage can was published by the Hamas-affiliated student union, al-Kutla al-Islamiya, in Gaza with the text “Keep the world clean” underneath.

There are no colors from the Israeli flag in the picture, only the Star of David, indicating that the cartoon refers to Judaism as a whole. The student union educates students in high schools, universities and other Gaza institutions about Hamas’s primary goal of freeing all of Israel from Israeli "occupation." Hamas also justifies attacks on Israeli civilians as “resistance,” and many of those active in the organization have joined the al-Kassam Brigades, which frequently fire rockets into Israel.
