When Hamas kills off a television character, they really kill off a television character:
A Mickey Mouse lookalike who preached Islamic domination on a Hamas-affiliated children’s television program was beaten to death in the show’s final episode Friday.
In the final skit, “Farfour” was killed by an actor posing as an Israeli official trying to buy Farfour’s land. At one point, the mouse called the Israeli a “terrorist.”
“Farfour was martyred while defending his land,” said Sara, the teen presenter. He was killed “by the killers of children,” she added.
“So,” asks Room 101, “does he get 72 virgins?”
UPDATE. Achmed and Farouk discuss the tragedy.
UPDATE II. The sad face is deployed at Muslim Village.
UPDATE III. Dan Lewis emails: “In mouse heaven, all the virgins are made of cheese.”
UPDATE IV. Cuckoo asks: “Why didn’t Hamas rip-off Itchy and Scratchy? They wouldn’t have even needed to change the theme song: They fight, they fight, they fight and fight and fight – fightfightfight, fightfightfight …”
