Jihad Bee replaces Terror Mouse

Hamas’s Al-Aqsa television station recruited a new children’s character to “continue” the legacy of its star martyr, Farfur – the Mickey Mouse lookalike who was beaten to death by an Israeli on the previous program. The new character on the children’s show Tomorrow’s Pioneers, a bee named Nahool, tells the hostess he is Farfur’s cousin and that he wishes to “continue the path of Farfur… the path of martyrdom, the path of the Jihad warriors… and in his name we shall take revenge upon the enemies of Allah, the murderers of the prophets...” Itmar Marcus then claims that the expression "Murderers of the prophets" is an Islamic expression used by the PA religious leaders to refer to Jews. According to Marcus, defining the Jews as the enemies of God is common in PA religious broadcasting.
