Ready for Martyrdom
Today’s Jewish World Review carries an article about Saraa Barhoum, “the young star of Hamas television’s best-known children’s show.” The show is “best known for bringing the world a militant Mickey Mouse look-alike and then having him killed off by an Israeli interrogator.”
As I commented three months ago, when news of faux Mickey reached us, “We all know that terrorists are the fault of the occupiers, who create an environment of hopelessness and despair in which young men and women see nothing better in their future. We’re sure it has nothing to do with using a Mickey Mouse clone to train young children to ‘annihilate the Jews’ and, well… see for yourself.”
It seems that behind the scenes Farfour was too independent minded and refused to do some sketches before his death. Hamas decided to replace it with a creature more befitting the level of thought expected from weapons – a bee.
