I had previously posted on May 14 on the Farfur/Mickey terrorist children’s program, which you have already seen on YouTube,
The Walt Disney Co. didn’t speak out when Hamas militants used a Mickey Mouse look-alike to preach Islamic domination because the company felt it would be ineffective, Disney’s chief executive said Monday.
The show was removed from the channel “for review” after Palestinian Information Minister Mustafa Barghouti said the character represented a “mistaken approach” to the Palestinian struggle against Israeli occupation.
Iger said Disney had nothing to do with the decision to pull the program, although the company did speak to several government officials. Iger did not elaborate on those discussions.
Gateway Pundit was able to make a video of the France2 report showing a Palestinian family with twelve children in Gaza reacting to the Farfur/Mickey TV show (in French):
Anchorman David Pujadas introduces it as “an example of Islamist propaganda in the Palestinian territories.”
The report was filed by Charles Enderlin, Israel correspondent for France2 (Neo-neocon has posted about him), who has been known to send Palestinian stringers to the locations.
The video shows the portion of the Farfur/Mickey program that you can see on the You Tube video above. Then they show the whole family, with twelve children, gathered in front of the TV.
The girl, unnamed, says that “it’s a good program because Farfur/Mickey shows us respect and how to be good muslims.”
The man, identified as “Hazam, a school teacher,” says that it’s a good program and that Islam is against violence.
The woman, fully covered except for her eyes, says it was good because “it keeps children off the street, where they can come under bad influences”.
Fathi Hamad, programming director for TV Al Aksa, says that the Israeli propaganda had done his station a great favor: a million dollars’ worth of publicity.
In case you don’t already know, “metal bars” like that are routinely used by Hamas to build those “home-made rockets” you’ve been seeing, one of which that killed an actual poor, innocent Israeli civilian yesterday
As Captain Ed points out,
The terrorist phenomenon started with the Palestinian people, and Lebanon should know that better than most. They have conducted terrorist attacks since 1964, when they first formed the PLO under Yasser Arafat.
TV Al Aksa retired Farfur/Mickey, but will continue to contribute to the depraved mentality.
And one can’t help but wonder if Disney didn’t complain out of cowardice.
Update, Wednesday 23 May: From Maria, A Taste for Terror: The long Palestinian suicide
The truth is that other Arabs want the Palestinians to continue to suffer. It’s useful as an excuse for all their failings. They have about as much sympathy for the refugees as all those good Germans had for the Jews whose real estate was suddenly available.
But the ultimate victims of this round of Palestinian violence are the Palestinians themselves.
After passing up so many chances for peace and statehood, they can no longer be classed as victims of Zionism. Yet the Palestinians are victims – of the other Arabs who exploit them and neglect them. And of the madmen spawned from their own kind.
If you need someone to blame for the current carnage, blame the Palestinian terrorists for whom violence has become a way of life (and death). Forget the rage of the dispossessed and all that sanctimonious claptrap. For the Palestinians preying upon their brethren, terror’s a business.
And business is good.
Another update Tarranto on Disney;
You’d think that Iger would be fierce as a tiger, not timid as a mouse. Not only that, but why is he quoting Daffy Duck, who works for rival Warner Bros.? Doesn’t Donald have anything pithy to say?
