M-I-C-K-E-Y... Why...? "H-A-M-A-S!"
Because We Hate Jews! ...
Because We Hate Jews! ...
Just when you think you've seen just about everything--in this case I'm talking about that video of the Palestinian children's show featuring a costumed Mickey Mouse character. An awful lot of you have watched this footage, posted on websites and then played on television news shows. For the few who haven't, the squeaky-voiced Disney icon is shown encouraging Palestinian children to become martyrs in the struggle to achieve worldwide domination--starting with the destruction of Israel.
This message isn't new by the way. The ruling Palestinian party, Hamas, produces music videos that encourage the youngest children to become suicide bombers. The Hamas website for children is filled with the same hateful fanaticism. Public-service announcements on Palestinian television feature a boy in heaven, supposedly killed by Israeli soldiers, calling out to other children to follow him through martyrdom.
We hardly ever hear about this stuff though. What made the Mickey Mouse video go viral, to use the Internet term, was its use of an image we're all familiar with. We know Mickey Mouse as a symbol of childhood happiness and innocence. It's shocking to see this image used to encourage children to become terrorists.
The two competing Palestinian factions, Hamas and Fatah, had agreed to stop killing one another and get back on message--blaming Israel. Once again, the international press was parroting the notion that Palestinian violence is caused by Israel's security fence and border checkpoints. The tide seemed to be turning.
So, naturally, somebody decided it was the perfect time to launch a murderous new kid's show. Some people never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.
