Here's the irony.
It really isn't a rabbit. Supposedly the Bunny Assud is a TIGER.
But, the show's creators wanted something children would 'like'.
So..... even though it's a tiger, it looks like a bunny.
(this all would make more sense if you were a dedicated Muslim)
So insanity pervades every aspect of their lives...
From Assud’s first appearance on the show:
Saraa Barhoum [to girl in the audience]: “Is there anything you want to share with us?”
Girl: “Arnoub [’Rabbit’]?”
Saraa Barhoum “His name is Assud [’Lion’].”
Girl: “How come you are called Assud, even though you look like a rabbit?”
Assud: “Because a rabbit is not good. He’s a coward. But I, Assud, will get rid of the Jews, Allah willing, and I will eat them up, Allah willing, right?”
Saraa Barhoum: “Allah willing.”
