Jewish blood libel cartoon posted on Facebook sometime in 2014 by an UNRWA teacher in Jordan.

A teacher working for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) in Jordan is actively promoting on his Facebook page a Palestinian Arab return to “Falastin,” a reference by Palestinian Authority leaders to all of the State of Israel as well as the current Palestinian Authority territories.

Among the photos posted by Nasreen Hammoud supporting the cause one can also find a rabidly anti-Semitic cartoon, apparently uploaded sometime last year.

It is worth noting that UNRWA requires all of its employees to sign neutrality agreements as a condition for employment.

The cartoon depicts a Jewish man (his face is not seen) wearing a blue-and-white shirt (the colors of the Israeli flag) emblazoned with a Magen David (Jewish star) on his chest, eating dinner.

It is an active promotion of the ancient blood libel that caused rivers of Jewish blood to flow in streets around the world.

The drinking glass is filled with what appears to be red blood – a blatant reference to the old blood libels that claim Jews drink the blood of their “victims” and also use it in ritual sacrifices, such as making matzos on Passover.

The back and tines of the fork are colored and adorned with the American flag. The blade of the knife bears Arabic writing (which this writer has been unable to translate, with apologies to the reader.)

The main course lying on the plate, which the Jewish diner is in the process of cutting, is a dead and bleeding Palestinian Arab child. The boy is wearing the black-and-white keffiyya (Arab scarf) of the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority’s ruling Fatah faction, led by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

Although the cartoon garnered 13 “Likes” on Facebook, only one person wrote a guarded two-word comment in Arabic in response: “No comment.”

Relations between Israel and Jordan have been diplomatically firm but somewhat tense at the grassroots level. Jewish tourists to the Hashemite Kingdom are warned to remove any overt signs of their faith. A recent observant Jewish visitor to the country was bluntly told by one tour guide not to bring his tefillin (phylacteries) with him due to security issues.

Nevertheless, a number of hareidi-religious groups who are careful not to buy produce grown in fields located in the Land of Israel during the shemitta, or “seventh” year — when the Torah commands farmers to allow the Land to lie fallow and “rest” — instead import their produce weekly from farmers in Jordan for the duration.

The “Treaty of Peace Between the State of Israel and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan was signed between the two nations on October 26, 1994.

Although there have been many times in which tensions have since threatened that peace, particularly over problems at the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, both sides have repeatedly reiterated their commitment to peace.

  2. if we could just understand that love quells hate and that even though love may sometimes feel like hate, that love for your neighbor should trump all wanton or instigated combativeness, then maybe real peace could be accomplished on our Earth

  3. Is anyone really surprised? arabs have been inculcated with Jew hatred, similar to what the roman catholic "church" taught its followers for 1500 years or so. Israel should never deal with the arabs for peace. A total waste of time. And remember, the quran advoctes lying, if its in the interest of its followers,
