This libel was given a new rendering this week in the official PA daily, which ran a cartoon that portrays Israel as controlling the United States and telling it what to do with the world.
The official PA daily also took a swipe at then-US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2009, accusing her of accepting Israeli bribes after she praised Israel for making concessions regarding settlements, and criticized the Palestinians for not resuming peace talks without prior conditions. "Why, Mrs. Hillary? How much did the Zionists pay you as a bribe?," jeered one article in the paper, while another accused her of "wallow[ing] in the swamp of lies."

Another example of this libel targeted former US President George W. Bush. A cartoon in the official PA daily showed President Bush's head on a ring, worn on the hand of a Jew as identified by the Star of David on his sleeve. [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 7, 2006]
