This is also how the final episode of Captain Kangaroo ended, if I’m not mistaken.
Hamas TV on Friday broadcast what it said was the last episode of a weekly children’s show featuring “Farfour,” a Mickey Mouse look-alike who had made worldwide headlines for preaching Islamic domination and armed struggle to youngsters.
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…
Station officials said Friday that Farfour was taken off the air to make room for new programs.
Uh huh. It might also have to do with the fact that the new rulers of the Islamic paradise in Gaza need food and money and thus far Allah hasn’t provided for them. So they’re going to have to beg the infidels, and the infidel doesn’t like when you appropriate beloved children’s icons to teach genocidal anti-semitism to toddlers. Teaching genocidal anti-semitism to toddlers without the use of beloved children’s icons remains, of course, perfectly fine.
Exit question: What will they air in Mickey’s place? Gilad Shalit’s hostage tapes?
