Hamas's nuclear dreams?

Norman Geras (Normblog) calls attention to an interesting illustration on this Hamas website. (The Al Qassam Brigades are the so-called "military wing" of Hamas.) Wait for the panel at the top of the page to load. When it does, it repeatedly flashes a Jewish star ... followed by a mushroom cloud.
(A message in Arabic follows. Maybe it says "only kidding"?)
Oddly enough, this particular illustration doesn't appear on the English-language version of the website.
[Update 2/27/2006: This website now appears to be inaccessible.]
