Farfur is back, and he’s mad. Now he doesn’t want just Israel, but Spain too: “Defiant Hamas TV airs resistance Mickey again,” from AFP, with thanks to all who sent this in:
Hamas-run television defied Israel and the Palestinian government on Friday by airing a controversial children’s show with a Mickey Mouse lookalike preaching resistance and Islamic domination….
Asked by an Al-Aqsa reporter why he looked around to see what his friends were writing, Farfur — whose name means butterfly — answered: “Because the Jews destroyed my home and I left my books and notes under the rubble.”
Ah. The Zionist oppressor ate my homework, eh?
“I’m calling on all children to read more and more to prepare for exams because the Jews don’t want us to learn,” said Farfur who failed the test.
Broadcast weekly for an hour, the show also featured a short film recalling the anguish of little girl Huda Ghalya, whose family was killed on a Gaza beach last June in a blast for which Israel denied responsibility.
“Anyone who wants to go to the sea will be killed,” said Farfur.
“Yes Farfur, but also they killed her family because we are Palestinian,” interjected reporter Hazem Sharawi, before calling for Islamic rule and for Spain to be returned to Muslim rule as after the 8th century Moorish invasion.
“Palestine will return free and Andalus will return soon. Hello Egypt, Damascus and Algeria. Islam will return for all whole world,” he said.
Friday’s show also taught tomorrow’s pioneers that the cities of Jaffa, Haifa and Acre, in modern-day Israel, in addition to Jerusalem, belong to their country. Songs are sung about Palestine and about facing the enemy.
