(AP) Hamas militants have suspended a TV program that featured a Mickey Mouse lookalike urging Palestinian children to fight Israel and work for global Islamic domination, the Palestinian information minister said Wednesday.
Information Minister Mustafa Barghouti said the character _ a giant black-and-white rodent with a high-pitched voice _ represented a "mistaken approach" to the Palestinian struggle against Israeli occupation.
He said that the program was pulled from Hamas-affiliated Al Aqsa TV at his ministry's request and "placed under review."
The character, named "Farfour," or "butterfly," but unmistakably a copy of the Disney character, preached against the U.S. and Israel each Friday on the show called "Tomorrow's Pioneers."
"You and I are laying the foundation for a world led by Islamists," Farfour squeaked on a recent episode. "We will return the Islamic community to its former greatness, and liberate Jerusalem, God willing, liberate Iraq, God willing, and liberate all the countries of the Muslims invaded by the murderers."
Children called in to the show, many singing Hamas anthems about fighting Israel.
A spokeswoman for Burbank, Calif.-based Walt Disney Co. did not return phone calls seeking comment, and the Gaza TV station had no comment.
The program was opposed by the Palestinian Broadcasting Corp., which is controlled by the Fatah movement of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, a Hamas rival that shares power with the militants in the Palestinian government.
Barghouti is an independent aligned with neither Hamas nor Fatah.
Loyalists of Hamas, which is sworn to the destruction of Israel, launched the Al Aqsa satellite channel last year. Bearded young men read the news and Islamic music is layered over footage of masked militants firing rockets into Israel. The channel also broadcasts talk shows, programs about the disabled and cartoons.
Hamas loyalists also run at least five news Web sites, a newspaper and a radio station.
Goebbels would be so proud.
-———— “a giant black-and-white rodent with a high-pitched voice”
In a black pansuit, that describes Hillary.
In other news, ABCDisney still employs Rosie O’Donnell.
So they didn’t like the idea of “Mickey” delivering the message, or they didn’t like the message itself? I remember a couple of years ago one of the stations over there had a “Romper Room” type show with a very pleasant young woman who lectured the tots about the glories of being martyrs for “Allah.” I believe she took her teaching to heart and became a suicide bomber.
At what point do you become so obsessed with death and a dirty strip of real estate that you feed your own kids to this diseased suicide/murder mentality?
The article fails to mention the part about “annihilate the Jews”. CNN’s attempts to suppress the story on Glenn Beck’s show are documented here:
Also MEMRI has the original with translation:
I suspect threats from Disney had something to do with this.
If somebody were to have a show in the US which was openly opposed to Islam, people would be absolutely outraged and call for somebody’s head on a silver platter.
*high five Texas*
> In a black pansuit, that describes Hillary.
(giggle!) that’s Hell Funny!
"I approve this message."
As horible as this was to watch, it was hard not to laugh all the way through it.
I couldn’t hold my self from laughing at this fake mickey mouse.
> As horible as this was to watch, it was hard not to laugh all the way through it.
Check these out, see if they make you laugh louder:
*This* is the sort of thing our MSM should be doing during the WOT. So where is OUR propaganda, ay!
Which highlights another difference between us and them — for us it would be a figure of speech and the allusion to a silver platter would be a nod to the amenities of days gone by. With them, they’d mean it literally, and I sincerely doubt they understand or care how the head is displayed other than on a video.
