So says this guy:

You and I are laying the foundation for a world led by Islamists!

Mickey Mouse is preaching Islamic Fundamentalism? Well, sort of. This is actually Farfour the Mouse (which means butterfly, for some inexplicable reason). He’s an icon on Hamas TV station Al-Aqsa TV and regularly stirs kids up into a froth of hatred against Israel and the US.

The show is called Tomorrow’s Pioneers and, until recently, aired every Friday. Perpetuating centuries old religious feuds is hardly pioneering activity, but there you go. Further sermons by the butterfly mouse of hatred include:

“We will return the Islamic community to its former greatness, and liberate Jerusalem, God willing, liberate Iraq, God willing, and liberate all the countries of the Muslims invaded by the murderers.”

There’s nothing like getting to them while they’re young. Children apparently called in to the show, often singing Hamas anthems about fighting Israel. Yehia Moussa, a Hamas leader in the movement’s Gaza Strip base, denied inciting children to hate Jews. He said, “Our problem is not with the Jews. Our problem is with the (Israeli) occupation and the occupiers.” Then again, Hamas is dedicated to the destruction of Israel, so you can’t really accept that statement. Not that the Israelis deal with these issues any better. There’s nothing like religious justification for perpetuating cultural animosities.

Still, the program has just been pulled from the air after the sudden round of recent international attention. Although I suspect it was actually action on the part of Disney that canned the show. Interesting that Disney has a greater power over Hamas than any political party. Oh, and in the interests of unbiased opinion, I should mention that Farfour also encourages his little future-martyrs to drink their milk and pray. That’s nice.
