Mickey Mouse look-alike, Farfour (butterfly), was killed off in the last episode of the Hamas television programme, "Tomorrow's Pioneers", but the television station has announced that other famous characters will continue to spread the anti-Semitic propaganda in his absence. As I read on one site, Farfour is the only Mickey Mouse look-alike that Walt Disney is not prepared to take legal action against, for violating copyright. Farfour, a cartoon mouse, incited Arab children to hate Jews and enjoined them to support the jihad against Israel. In one sketch Farfour tried to cheat in his exams, because Israelis had bulldozed his house and buried his schools books. The Mickey Mouse look-alike exclaimed that the battle for world domination would begin with "all of Palestine", would spread to Iraq and all Islamic countries now under "occupation". 

Quote: "In the final skit, Farfour was beaten to death by an actor posing as an Israeli official trying to buy Farfour's land. At one point, Farfour called the Israeli a "terrorist." "Farfour was martyred while defending his land," said Sara, the teen presenter. He was killed "by the killers of children," she added.

Farfour the Mouse made death and bloodshed acceptable, even desirable, in the eyes of children. And Reuters correspondents in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip are sanitizing Hamas' message of hatred...

Quote: "Farfur and a female co-host instructed their young viewers on Hamas's militant brand of Muslim piety and urged children to support armed resistance against Israel.

I don't know any piety that enjoins children to murder Jews, but whatever it is, I don't want anything to do with it. I was just talking with my friend Cheryl about this yesterday. Cheryl said you can just imagine all those Arab children believing that heaven is a happier place now that Farfour is there. But I can also imagine lots of Arab children now angry at Jews, because they killed their friend Farfour. Through the death of this mouse, Hamas has not ended its propaganda against the Jewish state. Instead it has scored another propaganda victory, presenting Israel as the aggressor and Arabs as the oppressed people.
