Skip to comments.Et tu, Grover? Sesame Street Recognizes 'Palestine'
Posted on 08/25/2010 1:56:44 PM PDT by Nachum
Grover, the charismatically blue character from the classic televised children's show Sesame Street, seems to be playing both sides of the Israeli-Arab conflict of late. The furry 'muppet' is hosting a new version of Jewish-themed Shalom Sesame to be aired on Hanukkah but has also been heard declaring We're off to Palestine! in an introduction to a Sesame Street video.
The video segment named A Gift from Grandma, features a Palestinian Authority girl named Salwa who says that she lives in "Palestine" before she helps her grandmother embroider a dress for her. Some viewers were incensed at the use of the name Palestine a nonexistent state, at least as far as Israel is concerned. It seems that someone on the writing staff never heard of Israel--or Jordan for that matter--two places where the story might have been filmed. Perhaps whoever wrote those lines feels that if something is repeated often enough, it will be believed.

There’s no such place.
Is Grover gonna become a suicide bomber?
Did they already have a Palestinian Sesame Street that talked about killing Jews and such?
I think there was a show with a terrorist mouse called “Farfour Mouse”.
no such place
Perhaps Grover is Grover Norquist - bought and paid for islamophile.
The dumbing down of america is so rediculous that its amazing... Sesame Street is a perfect example.. go try to sit through this show about nothing as it is broadcast today, and then go watch episodes from the early years.
Back then, they actually were trying to teach kids fundamentals, now its all about fluffy nonsense.
“Did they already have a Palestinian Sesame Street that talked about killing Jews and such?”
They did, featuring such characters as “Assud, the Jew-eating rabbit”.
Gubmint mind control.
That is all.
Protestant ministers refer to the Kingdom of Judea as “Palestine” all the time. Drives me nuts. In addition to being a mistaken effort at political correctness, it’s historically wrong.
Apparently it's where Sesame Street is located.
Heeeey everybodeeee. Thanks Nachum.
