Mickey Mouse Stuff

Posted By on Mon, Jul 2, 2007 at 8:25 AM

Remember Farfur, the militant mouse who promised Palestinian schoolchildren that Israel and the rest of the world would fall beneath the boot of Islamic revolution? He's been martyred, though there's no word on whether he gets the 72 virgins.

The BBC reports:

A Palestinian TV station has killed off a controversial Mickey Mouse lookalike that critics said was spreading anti-US and anti-Israeli messages to children.

The Hamas-affiliated al-Aqsa channel aired the last episode on Friday, showing the character, Farfur, being beaten to death by an "Israeli agent".

"Farfur was martyred defending his land," said the show's presenter Saraa.
