FARFOUR MARTYRED

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 …

    1. Aren’t skits supposed to be amusing? Or was this just a little scene where they allowed a beloved children’s character to be brutally murdered by Jews with the deliberate intention of scarring the audience? Nice people. Thank heavens they have their own state now.

      Yes. Unfortunately, they’re gerbils.

    1. This isn’t the first time Mickey’s taken one for the team. According to Umberto Eco’s The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana `Topolino’, as Mickey Mouse is known in Italian editions, was so popular (and in context subversive) in wartime Italy in pirated editions that Mussolini’s propagandists distributed a comic in which he died.

    1. Rats by Dr. Seuss

      If your ratty gets all scatty ‘cos his coat is getting matty
      And he’s acting kinda batty now he doesn’t look so natty
      If he starts to get all chatty and to voice pratty demands
      Then beware! You’ve got a bratty tatty ratty on your hands.

      If your doe has had a go with all her bro’ bucks in a row
      And you’ve seen her face aglow and her belly grow with woe
      If she’s getting glad and gloating and gargantuous in girth
      Then at any time you guess that your grand girl is gonna birth

      If your buck has had no luck getting his lazy butt unstuck
      And you pluck him from his hammock to a chorus of “You suck!”
      If his flaccid furry form is in a squishy slug disguise
      Then it’s right to get this roly rotund rat some exercise.

      RIP, Farfour

    1. #25: They could always have Farfive, and reveal that Farfour is one in twelve siblings. The premier could be Farfive along with brothers Farone, Fartwo and Farthree, violently kill their baby mice-sister, Fareleven, for showing some of her hair in public.

      And then they party.

    1. The sewer rat situation in Gaza City was getting intolerable; the rats were multiplying like crazy and starting to do things like crawl up the pipes and bite people in the butt while they sat on the toilet. The Public Works Director For Toilets and Car Bombs decided it was time to declare all-out war on the rats.

      So he calls in the superintendent of the sewer system and tells him to find five men who’d be willing to live in the sewers 24 hours a day fighting rats.

      “By the beard of Mohammed, boss,” says the superintendent, “No one’s going to put up with those conditions.”

      “No problem,” says the Director. “Go out and find five Hamas jihadis and draft them. They’re used to that kind of thing.”

      The Director tells the superintendent to return with his men in a week to report on battle progress, and the superintendent takes off.

      A week later the superintendent shows up in the Director’s office. He’s exhausted, bruised and scratched up, and all by himself.

      “I think we’ve lost the war,” he says.

      “What?! Where’s the five Hamas jihadis you drafted?” the Director asks.

      “That’s the problem,” says the superintendent. “Three of them defected to the enemy, and the other two have left the army to settle down with the war brides they brought back!”

      Okay, I’ll stop.

      Oh really?  The killers of children?  When the Israelis kill children, it’s usually because Palestinian gunmen shoot at Israelis and then hide behind children.  The children provide some measure of safety.  That would seem to indicate that even the Palestinians know Israelis make every effort to avoid harming a child.

      Palestinians, on the other hand, think nothing of detonating a bomb on a school bus filled with Israeli children.  Can anyone forget the photo of the bombed school bus with the arm of a dead grade school child hanging out the bus window?

      The Palestinians are a corrupt people.

    1. So okay, more (because, you know, when you miss your Friday support group meeting…)

      Unlike the Sopranos, at least Hamas believes in closure.

      So that’s the end of that show. Al Aksa-TV didn’t specify what series would replace it, but I’ll bet it’s not long before they’re hearing a pitch for something called “SpongeMohammed SquarePogrom”

    1. In the final skit, “Farfour” was killed by an actor posing as an Israeli official trying to buy Farfour’s land.

      And after the cameras stopped rolling, the actor was beaten to death as well. Them’s the breaks when you pose as an infidel baby (and mouse) killer.

    1. Heh, man or mouse?  Not long ago we found out that martyred women don’t get seventy-two virgins but get something else.  Suppose the Disney rip-off gets the same greeting in the afterlife; I’d say the matter might have come full circle.
