Palestinian Authority TV this week aired an anti-Semitic cartoon series portraying the historic banishment of Jews from Al-Madina by Muslims.

According to Muslim tradition, Jews, in what is now modern day Medina, Saudi Arabia, were driven from the area by Muhammed and his army in the 7th century for breaking a treaty known as the Constitution of Medina.

The show, titled  “Raids of the Prophet,” depicts members of the Qaynuqa tribe, one of the three main Jewish tribes in Medina in the 7th Century, as they conspire with the devil to pit the other two Jewish tribes against each other now that “Muhammad brought harmony to their hearts.”

Beseiged by Muslim fighters, the Qaynuqa tribe is then seen to capitulate and leave Medina under the protection of their adversary, Muhammed, though “They persisted in their evil until it turned against them.”

Below is the full transcript of the show (courtesy of MEMRI):

Jews of the Qaynuqa’ tribe conferring

Nawfal, member of the Qaynuqa’ tribe: The Muslims have grown stronger and have become mighty.

Another member of Qaynuqa’: You are right, Nawfal – especially after their victory at Badr.

Another member of Qaynuqa’: We, the Jews of the Qaynuqa’ tribe, are now on a par with the Muslims, after we used to have the power and the final say in Al-Madina.

Older member of Qaynuqa’: But we will not let them sit back and enjoy that. We will show them what the Jews of Bani Qaynuqa’ are made of.

Devil jumping up: How can they enjoy it while I’m around? I am responsible for them.

Devil’s helper: You are responsible for your followers only, but you have no authority over those who are God-fearing.”

Devil: I know that, you idiot, but I have followers, whose hearts are filled with animosity, hatred, and envy towards Muhammad and his companions. This, in itself, can accomplish a lot.

Qaynuqa’ member: The Aws and Khazraj tribes are having laughs together, after their enmity used to fill the land from east to west.

Another member of Qaynuqa’: Muhammad brought harmony to their hearts, and what you see is the outcome. My heart rages with fire whenever I see Muslims who love one another. Utility means power and success in everything. We will not allow this.

[…]

“The Muslims besiege the Jews of Qaynuqa’ having foiled their plot to pit the Aws and Khazraj tribes against one another.”

Muslim fighter: This is the fortress of the Qaynuqa’ tribe.

Another Muslim fighter: The gates are locked. How are we to get in?

[…]

Muslim fighter: Masoud, we will lay siege to them.

Masoud, a Muslim fighter: Only besiege them? No fighting?

First Muslim fighter: These are the orders of the Prophet Muhammad.

[…]

Giant spiders jump around in the devil’s den

Devil: You idiot, where were you, when everybody abandoned the Qaynuqa’ tribe?

Devil’s helper: I did what you told me to do.

Devil: Shut up. You are worthless. All you can do is play and have fun. However, we still have a chance.

Devil’s helper: What chance?

Devil: Ibn Saloul.

[…]

Muslim: How can you possibly ask us to defy the order of Allah’s prophet?

Ibn Saloul: I’m just reminding you of your old pact with the Qaynuqa’ tribe, before Muhammad came to
Al-Madina, before Muhammad came to Al-Madina.

Other Muslim: We kept that pact until they breached it themselves.

Ibn Saloul: Um… Um… They didn’t mean to.

Muslim: Inciting the Aws and the Khazraj tribes against one another, violating agreements harassing our women, making fun of the Muslims, affronting the Prophet of Allah – they did all this by accident?

[…]

Member of Qaynuqa’: Everybody has abandoned us. We are here alone.

Another member of Qaynuqa’: We have been here for 15 days, and nobody has saved us.

Older member of Qaynuqa’: We are imprisoned here. If things don’t change, we will die of hunger. Our supply of food and drink is almost finished.

Member of Qaynuqa’: I don’t want to die. No, I don’t want to die.

Older member of Qaynuqa’: Neither do we. We don’t want to die either.

Member of Qaynuqa’: Do something then.

Member of Qaynuqa’: There is only one thing to do.

[…]

Narrator: So they left Al-Madina, and the Prophet made sure no harm would be done to them on their way out. He sent a group of the Ansar to protect them.

Muslim: The Jews of the Qaynuqa’ tribe did not honor their pact with us. They persisted in their evil until it turned against them.

  • At first glance I thought it was from Huffington Post.

    Not too far off sadly.

  • If any Israeli newspaper depicted mohammad is a negative way, there would be a muslim uprising. The world (and obama and his cohorts) would be in an uproar. Why is it ok for them and not ok for us? I say we do to them what they do to Jews.

    Tom Brady: Best Part of My Summer Was Watching Julian Edelman Lather Himself in Mud at Dead Sea in Israel

    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady may have been bogged down this offseason over the NFL’s “Deflategate” scandal, but he found unusual recourse in images of teammate Julian Edelman lathering his body with potent Dead Sea mud in Israel. Indeed, as Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski became the latest celebrity voice to offer directions on the Israeli-developed navigational app Waze, and wide receiver Matthew Slater happily got married, Brady has been facing legal issues after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell reaffirmed a four-game suspension for Brady as part of a ball-deflating scandal […]

    Two Jewish men were the only unwitting participants in a social experiment conducted by Jimmy Kimmel, for his popular TV show. As part of a candid-camera-like sketch featured Monday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host devised different street scenes to observe human behavior — in particular, to see how long it would take people walking down California’s bustling Hollywood Boulevard to notice and interact with others in distress. One scene involved a man in a Spongebob Squarepants costume who had “fallen down” on the sidewalk and needed help […]

    International Jewish Organization Blasts Israeli-Born Star Natalie Portman for Comments on Holocaust Education

    A major Jewish organization rebuked actress Natalie Portman on Monday for saying in a recent interview that Jews put too much emphasis on teaching about the Holocaust relative to other genocides. The Israeli-born movie star told the U.K.’s Independent that the Jewish community needs to examine how much focus it puts on Holocaust education over other issues. She said she was shocked when she learned that a genocide was taking place in Rwanda while she was in school learning only about the horrors of the […]

    JNS.org – A new book that draws parallels between the Holocaust and the Palestinian Nakba (the Arabic term for the displacement of Palestinian refugees during Israel’s War of Independence) has sparked outrage ahead of an official book launch, to be hosted by the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute on Sept. 7.

    Famed actress Natalie Portman warned on Friday against the use of Holocaust education to evoke fear and paranoia. In an interview with the U.K. Independent she added that the trauma should make Jews more empathetic to others who have also experienced hatred. “Sometimes it can be subverted to fearmongering and like ‘Another Holocaust is going to happen,’” the Israeli-American star said. “We need to, of course, be aware that hatred exists, antisemitism exists against all sorts of people, not in the same way.

    A Righteous Gentile Navigates the Sharkpool of Washington’s Middle East Correspondents (REVIEW)

    The Tribalist, by Louis Marano, is ostensibly a work of fiction but at its core a kind of love song by a gentile journalist for the State of Israel, and especially its secular Zionist core. (Because of the relentless attacks by left-wing polemicists on Israel’s allegedly “messianic” fringe, it’s often forgotten that most of Israel’s founders and all its leaders have been secular Zionists.) The author, the product of an Italian-American family in Buffalo, served two tours of duty in […]
