The dehumanization of Israelis and Jews, including their depiction as animals, is common in the PA print media. In recent days the PA has increased the animal-like depictions of Israelis. The following three depictions of Israelis as wolf, alligator and worm, all appeared this week in the official PA daily Al Hayat Al Jadida.

1. Israel the wolf is about to devour the new PA government.
