The PA and Fatah celebrate kidnapping of three Israeli youths
an odious distortion of the World Cup 2014 logo, the official
Palestinian Authority daily printed today a cartoon celebrating the
kidnapping of three Israeli youths last Thursday night, June 12, 2014.
Instead of the famous logo of the World Cup 2014, in which three
victorious hands hold the globe, together creating the prestigious
trophy, the PA cartoon shows a "trophy" of three hands holding three
people with their hands up in surrender. Instead of the text "Brasil"
below the "trophy," the word "Khalil" is written - Arabic for Hebron, a
city near where the Israeli youths were kidnapped.

Similarly, Fatah is celebrating the kidnapping as a victory. On its
official Facebook page, the movement posted a cartoon of a victory sign
with three fingers held up instead of two, symbolizing the three
kidnapped youths. Accompanying the picture was a smiley with the text,
"For your interpretation :)".
