**Disclaimer*Â· I am not taking sides in this matter per say but it does have to make you think about who you really want to support.
A Hamas-affiliated children's television program called "Tomorrow's Pioneers" off'd Mickey Mouse the other day. Okay it was Mickey Mouseâ€™s' double named "Farfour" they killed but still. In the last skit of the day the program showed an Israeli official trying to buy Farfour's land.
At one point in the show the Mickey Mouse double called Israelis terrorist. At another point he says, "We will restore to this nation its glory, and we will liberate (Jerusalem mosque) Al-Aqsa, with Allah's will, and we will liberate Iraq, with Allah's will, and we will liberate the Muslim countries invaded by murderers".
Then they showed the Israelis beating Farfour to death, our Mickey Mouse double getting sucker punched and killed and then making him a martyr who was "defending his land". And then to urge children to stand up and fight Israel. I mean Hello? Are you running on all four cylinders?
Now my first thought to this was one of disbelief and floored. If someone were to ask me right after I had heard about this show I probably would say alright then. At which point I would turn away and say something like that must be some good stuff he is smoking, I wonder if I can get me some. But getting down to it here is what I think.
Okay now come on! Really? Killing Mickey is going to get support on your side with the children? Mickey will be back next week same bat time, same bat station. And if that is your answer to get the next generation involved in your war to fight Israel, what are you saying? There is no chance for peace. You are grooming children through kids programming!!!!! What kind of messed up thinking is that. You figure at some point this has got to end. If you are training your children for hatred of someone they donâ€™t even know and wonâ€™t know for another 15 years. I mean it is a sick and twisted cycle. Someone has to stand up and say try living together in peace. The people that live there now had nothing to do with what happened and neither did you for that matter of fact. But keep on blowin people up and trying to make â€œYour Standâ€ and I believe you will watch you support continue to dwindle. Society no longer has a place for people to taking innocent people's lives. I believe the only thing you will accomplish is awaking a sleeping giant. What I want to know is who are they going to off this week? My bets are on Bugs Bunny. Hey he has been hunted for years.
P.S. Okay maybe I did take sides a little here but its hard not to. I just keep shaking my head about using Mickey Mouse as Martyr. And I miss my Mickey Mouse.
