Humor or hate? Groups see Israeli cartoon differently

Ahmed and Salim appear to be typical teenage brothers. The animated stars of an incendiary new Internet cartoon series aren't typical, however. Its creators and fans see a humorous series that resembles "South Park" — at least visually — and mocks Islamic terrorism. Its critics see a hate-filled cartoon that uses crude stereotypes to dehumanize Muslims, intensify Arab-Israeli divisions and inflame the conflict between Muslims and Jews.
