See ya real soon, Martyr Mouse

Farfur Farfur, the Islamic Mickey Mouse and star of his own show on Hamas satellite TV, died a brutal death in an episode last week at the hands of an Israeli official after refusing to turn over a deed to his ancestral lands. Whoa! That’s some intense must-see kids’ propaganda! Was Quentin Tarantino the guest director? Equally disturbing was the host’s “political discussion” via telephone with a 3-year-old during the telecast. Say what you will about Western media, but I’ll take ads for sugar-frosted treats, fatty foods and questionable video games over this kind of stuff any day. (Though if the CIA blasts Barney, well, it’s probably for the best.)
