Fascist Mickey

Some of you may have already read about this one in the right wing press, which is having a field day with the story. It seems that Hamas, a terrorist Palestinian organization based in the Gaza Strip, has seen fit to appropriate the image of Mickey Mouse for propaganda purposes. In the clip provided here, the faux Mickey calls for the destruction of Israel and encourages Palestinian children to help form a worldwide Islamic caliphate. It’s stuff like this that makes this job so much fun. It appears however that the governments of Israel and the U.S. were not as amused with the program as I was, and called for it to immediately be pulled from the airwaves. Even Fatah, the moderate political party in Palestine, asked for the show to be cancelled. At first, Hamas complied, but later began broadcasting the program again. As if we in the West needed yet another example of the degeneracy of radical Islamic culture.
