Via JWF, a surreal reminder that the scope of Hamas’s jihad is a bit more ambitious than resistance to the Israeli occupation of Gaza that, er, ended three years ago.

I like that Reuters keeps referring to the degenerate in the rabbit suit as “the rabbit.”

A man-sized talking rabbit appeared on television in Gaza on Friday to denounce Danish newspapers over cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad that offended Muslims.

The latest in a line of cartoon-inspired characters that take the message of the Hamas Islamist movement to Palestinian children, the actor in the Bugs Bunny-style outfit also railed against “Zionist filth” and Israel’s control of Jerusalem…

“I want the West to hear this. I want the Danes who offended the great Prophet to hear it,” the rabbit said, gesturing to viewers after the show’s co-presenter, a girl of about 12 named Sarra, condemned Danish newspapers for reprinting the cartoons after police accused several men of plotting to kill the artist.

“Where are you Muslims? Where are you Arabs?” said Sarra, wearing a headscarf and speaking with precocious eloquence.

“We are all a sacrifice for the Prophet. The soldiers of Tomorrow’s Pioneers will redeem the Prophet with all they have.”…

“Who has sabotaged the world if not the Zionist plans?” [a caller] sang down the line to the studio in Gaza. Dancing and singing along, Assud the rabbit chimed in: “They have bombarded us.”

Old-school HA readers know that when she says they’re all sacrifices for Mohammed, she ain’t fooling. Exit question instruction: Find the quote of the day buried in this story.
