CARTOONISTS in the Muslim world are attacking Arab leaders for their virtually unanimous non-support for Hamas in the latest conflict with Israel

HINT: It’s no secret that most of the Arab world has always disliked the Palestinians which is why so many Arab countries will not grant them citizenship or allow them to buy land in their countries.

MEMRI  As the Israel-Hamas conflict in the Gaza Strip continues, there is evidence of a sense of disappointment in the Arab and Muslim world at the Arab countries’ failure to act to aid the Gaza residents, and at the Arab League’s indifference to events there. This disappointment has been expressed pointedly in cartoons in newspapers, on websites, and on social networks; cartoonists went so far as to accuse the Arabs of betraying Gaza and of collaborating with Israel in the latter’s operations there.

It should be noted that alongside the criticism of the Arab position vis-à-vis the Gaza events, the Arab press has published numerous articles criticizing Hamas’ actions and terming them endangerment of the lives of Gaza residents. The following are cartoons on the Gaza situation from Arab and Iranian sources:
