PA TV Airs Antisemitic Cartoon Series Portraying Banishment of Jews from Al-Madina by Muslims

Following are excerpts from “Raids of the Prophet,” an Egyptian animated series which aired on Palestinian Authority TV on July 15-17, 2013:


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.
