An Arab TV satire portrayed Ariel Sharon as Dracula drinking the blood of Arab children. The series, being broadcast by Abu Dhabi satellite television, also had an actor who played the Israeli prime minister ordering soldiers to shoot captured Arabs. Foreign Minister Shimon Peres called the satire “repulsive” and said he plans to file a complaint with the United Nations.
