Ripping the Rip-Off a New One

Farfur the not-so-friendly-genocidal mouse is under attack from the House of Mickey.

The only surviving child of Walt Disney has called Hamas “pure evil” for using Mickey Mouse to teach Islamic radicalism to children.

Diane Disney Miller said she was disgusted that a rip-off of her father’s iconic cartoon character was being used on a new Hamas TV show to encourage Palestinian children to take up arms against Israel and America.

“Of course I feel personal about Mickey Mouse, but it could be Barney as well,” Ms Miller, 73, told the New York Daily News.

“It’s not just Mickey, it’s indoctrinating children like this, teaching them to be evil,” said Ms Miller, who owns a winery in northern California.

“The world loves children and this is just going against the grain of humanity.’

The Daily News revealed this week that Hamas’ Al-Aqsa TV station began running the new children’s series in April.

The Disney Company had no comment but Ms Miller praised the New York Daily News for informing the public about the program.

She should be praising Palestinian Media Watch who are the ones who first broke this story.

“What we’re dealing with here is pure evil and you can’t ignore that,” Ms Miller said.

“I’m awful glad you’re doing something about it, writing about this and keeping it in the public eye as much as it can be.”

Hamas officials denied they were using the show to incite children against Jews.

“Our problem is not with the Jews,” Yehia Moussa, a Hamas leader in the movement’s Gaza Strip base, told The Associated Press.

“Our problem is with the (Israeli) occupation and the occupiers.”

Liar, liar, pants on fire. Take these little gems from the Hamas Charter, for example:

Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious. (Preamble)

The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said:

“The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.” (related by al-Bukhari and Moslem).” (article 7)

“But the Jews will not be pleased with thee, neither the Christians, until thou follow their religion; say, The direction of Allah is the true direction. And verily if thou follow their desires, after the knowledge which hath been given thee, thou shalt find no patron or protector against Allah.” (The Cow – verse 120). (article 13)

Israel, Judaism and Jews challenge Islam and the Moslem people. “May the cowards never sleep.” (article 28)

And that’s not even counting all the other Hamas statements on Jews. But you get the point. Back to the report.

But the show also got bad reviews from Hamas’ political rival, the Fatah movement, headed by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

“I don’t think it’s professional or even humane to use children in such harsh political programs,” said Basem Abu Sumaya, head of Fatah’s Palestinian Broadcasting Corp, told the AP.

I’m guessing his objection is merely with the television format, and not regarding the preaching of hatred of Jews to the children.
