RAMALLAH, West Bank -- A Hamas-run television channel has defied a Palestinian government request to axe a controversial children's cartoon in which a Mickey Mouse look-alike urges resistance against Israel.
Looks like Farfur 'the fake' is back in business, ready to preach his message of hate (in that squeaky little voice of his) to the kiddies of Palestine. An official at Al-Aqsa TV has said the station will air "Tomorrow's [terrorist] Pioneers" at 4.00 pm, claiming that "Mustafa Barghouti [information minister] misunderstood the issue." Hmm. What issue might that be? That it's okay, after all, to incite violence, and glorify and encourage Islamic world domination, because heck, we're a terrorist organization and we can do whatever we darn well please? And if you don't like it, we'll just blow you up, like we do anyone who happens to disagree with our terrorist agenda?
And the international media is whitewashing the whole issue, according to LGF. You Tube also removed the video, for a while. When I tried to access it earlier this afternoon, a message stated the video had been removed due to terms of usage violation. Same thing happened to LGF. It looks like it's back on, although who knows for how long. It's still accessible at Palestinian Media Watch.
It did seem too good to be true. We're not dealing with reasonable people, after all. I just wonder what's up with the Disney folk! They running scared, as well?
