Israeli forces distributed a cartoon urging Palestinians to shun terrorists in their midst. Titled “Terrorism is Killing You,” the black-and-white sketch of an Islamist suicide bomber squashing an elderly Palestinian man and a boy in a huge vise was distributed in the West Bank city of Nablus this week, military sources said. It was the first time Israel has resorted to art in its psychological warfare against Palestinian terrorists. Nablus is a hotbed of extremists, many of whom are hated by the populace for assuming a vigilante role in lieu of the local police force.
