Jihadi Mickey Mouse Show Off the Air

Disney doesn't lose much time protecting its intellectual property--the Mickey Mouse show that encouraged Palestinian children to fight for Islamic global domination is now off the air.

Jihadi Mouse Show Off the Air

RAMALLAH, West Bank, May 9 (AP) — Hamas militants have suspended a television program that featured a Mickey Mouse look-alike urging Palestinian children to fight Israel and work for global Islamic domination, Mr. Barghouti said Wednesday.

He said the character, a large black and white rodent with a high-pitched voice, represented a "mistaken approach" to the Palestinian struggle against Israeli occupation. He said the program had been pulled from the Hamas-affiliated Al Aksa TV at the Information Ministry's request and "placed under review."

"You and I are laying the foundation for a world led by Islamists," the character squeaked on a recent episode. "We will return the Islamic community to its former greatness and liberate Jerusalem, God willing, liberate Iraq, God willing, and liberate all the countries of the Muslims invaded by the murderers."
