Hamas' television aired a cartoon titled "Special Mission" slandering the Palestinian Authority apparatuses, which, according to the clip, serve Israel and
The video portrays a Palestinian officer carrying out orders of IDF troops while being humiliated by them, and assitsting settlers.
The eight-minute video takes place near the security coordination HQ. Palestinian officer Bahlul (clown) is shown to be asked by his Israeli counterpart: "What is your mission?" to which he replies: "To defend the rule of law." When the Israeli officer asks what that is, the Palestinian replies: "To defend settlers."
He also notes that settler provocations will not be disturbed or responded to by the Palestinians when asked how he would react in such a case. The video portrays Bahlul as saying that should he get an order from his Israeli colleague to arrest his family members he would do it.
He notes that he is willing to fight the resistance and even shine the shoes of the Israeli officer and as a bonus to kiss them as well. "I'll divorce my wife if you tell me to," he said.
The Palestinian officer is also seen trying to defend an Israeli settler who shot Palestinian children in Hebron. He shouts at the settler "you just killed my people, but I will respond with a commitment to peace."
At this point in the clip, Bahlul draws a dove and presents it to the settler who had went on a killing spree by his father's orders. According to the setller's father "the most delicious thing is to kill Palestinians and drink their blood."
In the video Bahlul is also seen beating a Palestinian boy since his Israeli counterpart told him that the child had hurled stones at soldiers.
Meanwhile, Hamas politburo chief Khaled Mashaal said Sunday the Islamist group was in the final stages of achieving reconciliation with
the rival Palestinian Fatah party after he met Saudi Arabian officials to try to narrow the rift.
At the end of the meeting he said, "There has been progress in efforts to reach a reconciliation, Hamas is willing to sign the Egyptian reconciliation document, as long as its comments will be taken into account."
However, Fatah Central Committee member Mohammed Dahlan said that Hamas wasn't ready and able to reach reconciliation.
He further noted, "There's an alliance of interests between Hamas and Israel to weaken the PA and harm it. The only chance to reach reconciliation is when the sane people in Hamas decide to go back on the coup they carried out."
