Disney characters adorn hate-filled Palestinian children's show

Wednesday, September 10, 2008 |  Israel Today Staff

First it was Hamas, now it is the Western-backed Palestinian Authority of Mahmoud Abbas that is using beloved Disney characters to lure Palestinian Arab children who are then taught that terrorist violence against Israeli Jews is the highest achievement.

In a similar way that American children are raised by pop culture to believe that becoming a movie star or professional athlete is the pinnacle of social achievement, Arab children currently tuning in to Palestinian Authority TV are being taught that deceased anti-Israel terrorists are their society's greatest heroes.

And it is being done to a Disney theme.

In a recent episode of a special children's show airing during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, a young host addressed Palestinian children from a set adorned with the likenesses of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Winnie the Pooh and Piglet.

During the episode, the young host educated her audience about a "beloved bride, daughter of Jaffa, jasmine flower" by the name of Dalal Mughrabi.

In 1978, Mughrabi led a team of Palestinian terrorists from Lebanon in infiltrating the Israeli coast near Tel Aviv and attacking a passenger bus they encountered along the coastal highway. In the course of the attack, Mughrabi and her fellow terrorists murdered 37 Israelis, including 12 children.

It has become common over the past decade for the Palestinian Authority to glorify the murderers of Israeli Jews by naming streets, soccer teams and summer camps after them.

Israeli watchdog group Palestinian Media Watch warned, however, that this latest incident appears designed to make Palestinian children believe this violent message is actually endorsed by a respectable international media company like Disney.
