Gaza - 'Toon In To Hate
Gaza - Hamas’ terrorist TV channel—which routinely indoctrinates kids by portraying Israelis as ghouls—is launching a new cartoon series that depicts another enemy, the Palestinian Authority police.
A pilot episode shows a toadyish Palestinian officer watching as a Jewish character machine-guns a group of West Bank children to death and drinks their blood.
“You killed our children before my eyes,” the officer says meekly. “I will respond with even more peace.”
The grotesque six-minute pilot was a big hit when tested on Gaza Strip viewers this month by Hamas’ video mouthpiece, Al Aqsa TV, and will be expanded next month, officials in Gaza City said.
Al Aqsa TV is notorious for propaganda-filled kids’ shows, such as a 2007 broadcast that showed Farfur, a Mickey Mouse-like character, vowing, “We will annihilate the Jews! I will commit martyrdom!”
In the final episode, an actor playing an Israeli agent tried to buy Farfur’s land, and, when the mouse refused “to sell our lands to terrorists,” he was beaten to death.
But the new Hamas series expands the hate-filled message by making monsters out of both the Israelis and the Palestinian security force, even though they have often clashed violently in the West Bank.
The pilot cartoon, called “A Special Mission,” is built around Bahlul, a boot-licking police officer in the US-backed Palestinian Authority.
Hamas launched a civil war in 2007 against the authority’s forces that ended with the terrorist group establishing iron control over Gaza and the authority retaining power in the West Bank.
Bahlul, whose name means “buffoon” in Arabic, obligingly kisses the feet and shines the shoes of an Israeli soldier, drawn with an enormous nose and pointed ears like a devil’s.
He vows to “protect the [Jewish] settlements in the West Bank” and says he would shoot his brother, divorce his wife and arrest his relatives if the Israelis ordered him to do so.
In Gaza, this is ratings gold.
“We received hundreds of letters from inside and outside [Gaza] asking for the program to be shown again,” a network official told Agence France-Presse.
