Jerusalem (CNSNews.com) - Hamas television has created a new character to replace the Mickey Mouse look-alike named Farfur that called for jihad and a global Islamic takeover.
Nahool is a giant yellow and black-striped bumblebee, suspended from the studio ceiling. He says he wants to follow in his cousin Farfur's footsteps and calls for jihad, according to a translation provided on Monday by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).
During the episode of the children's program "Tomorrow's Pioneers" that aired on Friday, the child hostess Saraa looks up and sees Nahool. She asks him who he is and what he wants.
"I am Nahool [the bee], Farfur's cousin...I want to continue the path of Farfur, -- the path of 'Islam is the solution; the path of heroism; the path of martyrdom; the path of the Jihad warriors. Me and my friends shall continue the path of Farfur," Nahool says in the same squeaky voice that his cousin had.
"And in his name we shall take revenge upon the enemies of Allah, the murderers of the prophets [i.e. the Jews], the murderers of innocent children, until Al-Aqsa will be liberated from their filth," he said. Saraa welcomes Nahool to the show.
It is also the name of the Hamas television station and the military wing of the Fatah faction.
The use of Farfur to preach Islamic world domination angered many in the Western world. On the program two weeks ago, Farfur was "martyred" when an actor playing an Israeli interrogator beat him to death for refusing to sell his land.
PMW said it was clear that the show would continue its "rabidly anti-Israel messages" through Nahool after the death of the character of Farfur.

Everyone in Hamas is the Son of a Bee.
Every day the Muslim world plumbs new depths of sick. And there is nothing they do that the left won’t defend.
They are breeding a whole new generation of super-terrorists trained since birth to do nothing but kill. You can’t make peace with these people, they aren’t interested...
Hamas 'Mickey Mouse' killed off
The Hamas-affiliated al-Aqsa channel aired the last episode on Friday, showing the character, Farfur, being beaten to death by an "Israeli agent".
"Farfur was martyred defending his land," said the show's presenter Saraa.
Israeli critics had said the show was outrageous and some Palestinian ministers tried to get it shelved.
In the final broadcast an actor said to be an Israeli agent tries to buy the land of the squeaky-voiced Mickey Mouse lookalike.
Farfur brands the Israeli a "terrorist" and is beaten to death.
He was killed "by the killers of children", Saraa says.
Al-Aqsa television told the Associated Press news agency the show, Tomorrow's Pioneers, was making way for new programmes.
The channel had ignored demands from Information Minister Mustafa Barghouti for the show to be stopped.
Mr Barghouti said it "was wrong to use a programme directed at children to convey political messages".
In an earlier show, Farfur had said: "You and I are laying the foundation for a world led by Islamists.
"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."
The Israeli organisation, Palestinian Media Watch, said Farfur took "every opportunity to indoctrinate young viewers with teachings of Islamic supremacy".
Indoctrinating young Palestinians to hate Israel, the United States, and non-Muslims in general.
Somebody gimme the picture posting code please.
This wasn't part of the article. A line should have been put in.
I was thinking Doobee Bee from Romper Room.
We’ll try that again: “img src= (source URL)” and put the whoel thing between “<” and “>”
Thank you, Sarge *salutes*
They are a piece of work...
Even Hamas fears the Disney lawyers.
Will Elliot Gould please pick up the black and yellow striped phone. /obscure
I was thinking more along the lines of John Belushi in a bee costume. :)
If you’ll note, the article points out that even other Palestinians find this to be going too far.
I mean, you wouldn't think that Hamas would be afraid of a corporate player of the "Great Satan" now would you.
Just doing a job the mouse wouldn’t do
Is this the homicide Bomb-ble bee? He is equipped with a stinger-missle. .or...he could be a jew-joo bee.
I am concerned with what will these super-terrorists do once the war is over. The current chaos is Gaza will look like Eden compared with what they will do.
