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.

These people transcend the merely repulsive, and take moral and spiritual depravity to depths unequalled since Julius Streicher's Der Sturmer.

I agree with you. The station should be bombed, daily if necessary.

There can never be peace if children are brainwashed from birth that Israelis kill children and Palestinians pursue peace. They rob them of the ability to ever think critically. Where's the UN saying something about this? Other groups? Oh they don't care? I thought so...

I hate to say this but shutting that station down would be worse for Israel than allowing it to broadcast. Shutting them down would open Israel to charges of free speech violations.

The cartoon is not going to create anti-Semitism that isn't already there.

Free speech violations? you do realize that the 1st amendment doesnt apply there, right?

That is true, but free speech is a basic tenet in any democracy. If Israel holds itself out as being better than her neighbors (and she is), shutting down a station showing a cartoon, even an offensive one, detracts from that claim. If the cartoon called for violence or incited violence, that would be something else - that's not even protected speech in the US. If its just an ugly, insulting cartoon, well - we have plenty of those here too. Ever see some of the depictions of George W. Bush?

You "would"?? What's that supposed to mean? You're closing your gemora and joining the army?? Somehow, I doubt it. I think you ARE just going to continue blogging about all the things that you WOULD do. Would if what...?
Please, spare us the insight and commentary, and do something productive with your life!
