About a year ago, Ian Dirk did a post on COMOPS about a Palestinian children’s story hour where the featured stories included a tale of a Jewish woman who tried to poison the Prophet (moral: “the Jews are a people of treachery and betrayal.”), and the story of a little kid who left his family to kill infidels, only to be killed, buried and resurrected.

And who can forget Farfur the mouse? He channeled Mickey on Palestinian TV until international criticism led to cancellation of the show. In the final episode Farfur was martyred by an Israeli agent who beat him to death.

Proving once again that it’s nothing if not creative with children’s programming, al Aqsa TV is out with a new puppet show. It features a puppet-kid having his homicidal way with puppet-Bush, as in U.S. President Bush. Here’s a bit of the script as reported by MEMRI:

Child: “You are impure, Bush, so you are not allowed inside the White House.”

Bush: “What are you saying?! Why am I not allowed into the White House?”

Child: “Because it has been turned into a great mosque for the nation of Islam. I will kill you just like Mu’az killed Abu Lahab. I will kill you, Bush, because that is your fate.”

Child stabs Bush repeatedly

Child: “Ahhh, I killed him.”
