“We will annihilate the Jews,” says a little girl, prompted by a Hamas terrorist wearing a Mickey Rat costume. This is the Palestinian version of the Mouseketeers, er, ah, “Tomorrow’s Pioneers.” Once again, the hateful, racist brainwashing of Palestinian children has been exposed. Thanks to an outcry by the blogsphere and mainstream media, “Hamas militants have suspended a TV program that featured a Mickey Mouse lookalike urging Palestinian children to fight Israel and work for global Islamic domination.”
In an AP article entitled, “Militant ‘Mickey Mouse’ pulled off air,” I found the wording unusually un-politically-correct:
…The character, named “Farfour,” or “butterfly,” but unmistakably a copy of the Disney character, preached against the U.S. and Israel each Friday on the show called “Tomorrow’s Pioneers.”
“You and I are laying the foundation for a world led by Islamists,” Farfour 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.”
Children called in to the show, many singing Hamas anthems about fighting Israel. …
Loyalists of Hamas, which is sworn to the destruction of Israel, launched the Al Aqsa satellite channel last year. Bearded young men read the news and Islamic music is layered over footage of masked militants firing rockets into Israel. …
From MEMRI, the transcript of the video you watched above:
Following are excerpts from a children’s TV show, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on April 6-13, 2007:
Host Saraa, a young girl: Sanabel, what will you do for the sake of the Al-Aqsa Mosque? How will you sacrifice your soul for the sake of Al-Aqsa? What will you do?
Sanabel, young girl on phone: I will shoot.
Farfour, a Mickey Mouse character in a tuxedo: Sanabel, what should we do if we want to liberate…
Sanable: We want to fight.
Farfour: We got that. What else?
Saraa: We want to…
Sanabel: We will annihilate the Jews.
Saraa: We are defending Al-Aqsa with our souls and our blood, aren’t we, Sanabel?
Sanabel: I will commit martyrdom.
Farfour: We’ve said more than once that becoming masters of the world requires the following: First, to be happy with our Arabic language, which once upon a time ruled this world.
Saraa: Of course.
Farfour: Second… or maybe that’s it?
Adult host: Farfour, I heard you talking in English.
Farfour: Yes. How are you, Saraa? I hope to be good time.
Saraa: What’s with you, Farfour? Why are talking this way? Didn’t we agree to talk in literary Arabic?
Farfour: But Saraa, this is the language of the advanced world, the language of the world that understands and invents things, isn’t it?
Saraa: No, Farfour, you are wrong, because you don’t know that the Muslims are the basis of civilization. If not for the Muslims, the world wouldn’t have got to where it is today.
Farfour: My dear youngsters, we’re back. We always miss seeing you on your weekly program “The Pioneers of Tomorrow,” in which we are placing together the cornerstone for the ruling of the world by an Islamic leadership.
Here is Palestinian Media Watch’s transcript of Mickey’s tirade:
Farfur: “We are setting with you the cornerstone for world leadership under Islamic leadership. Isn’t it so, Saraa’?”
Saraa’: “Yes, our beloved children.”
Farfur: “You must be careful regarding your prayer and to go to the mosque for all five [daily] prayers. I say, in the mosque and in the first rows, until we can lead the world.”
Saraa’: “We remind you that we, the great ones, started this program to lead this world. The nucleus, with the will of Allah, will be from here, from Palestine. We will carry the concern of this [Islamic] nation that awaits us.”
Farfur: “From Palestine, oh Saraa’, what do you mean? From Gaza, Jerusalem, Ramallah, or from all of Palestine?”
Saraa’: “Yes, from all of Palestine” [i.e., includes Israel –editors].
Farfur: “If so, my beloved young ones, with the will of Allah, we will lead the nation from here, from Palestine.”
Saraa’: “Our beloved children, many say that we had glory [in the past], and we had culture, and the Muslims had greatness and respect. But with the will of Allah, we, tomorrow’s pioneers, will restore the glory of this nation.”
Farfur: “Yes, we, tomorrow’s pioneers, will restore to this nation its glory, and we will liberate Al-Aqsa, with Allah’s will, and we will liberate Iraq, with Allah’s will, and we will liberate the Muslim countries, invaded by murderers.”
Saraa’: “Yes, they are children occupied by the Jews, but with the will of Allah, we will resist and protect against the Zionist occupation.”
Farfur: “Until we win, with the will of Allah, we will resist until we win.”

Saraa’: “…We remind you that we will lead this world, and the center of the leadership, with the help of Allah, praise him, is from here, Palestine, and will burst out across the world…”
Girl: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
Saraa’: “You see, Farfur, everyone is ambitious and wants to lead the world. You… want to lead the world, Ahmad?”
Saraa’: “It’s important…”
Farfur to the girl: “Fatima, you hear me? What do you say to the prisoners in the prisons of the oppressive invading Zionist occupation…?”
[Esraa' sings a song, Farfur is delighted until the words] “…we will surrender ourselves…”
Saraa’: “Esraa’, it’s not a good song. Why?”
Esraa’: “Because it has surrender.”
Saraa: “We don’t surrender, we want to resist against the enemy, isn’t it so, Farfur?… We want to resist against the enemy, and we don’t want to surrender.”
[Farfur compares Abu Jahal, who was the most prominent enemy of Muhammad in Mecca, to Sharon]
Farfur: “Allah willing, this country, its children, its men, its women and its elderly – will win – we will win, brothers. We will win, Bush! We will win, Sharon! Ah, Sharon is dead. We will win, Mofaz. Mofaz left. We will win, Olmert, we will win Condoleezza … we will win.”
Saraa’: [Final words] “…I remind you that we are the ones who will carry the concerns of this [Islamic] nation, and we will lead this world, and I remind you that Al-Aqsa and the prisoners are a responsibility on our shoulders, and Allah will ask us on Resurrection Day what we gave for their sake.”

The hostess explains to Farfur that one must aspire to memorize the entire Quran… “Because we want to lead the world, so [therefore] we want to memorize the [entire] Quran.”
[The girl Harwa recites a song:]
“We liberated Gaza by force
From your death…
The people firmly stand
In their fire is a flame
Rafah sings “oh, oh”
Its answer is an AK-47
We who do not know fear
We are the predators of the forest.”
Another child, Muhammad, reads lines from a poem:
“Oh Jerusalem, we are coming…
Oh Jerusalem, we will never surrender to the enemy,
We will never be humiliated,
It is beloved Palestine that taught us what to be
And taught us to be the soldiers of the Lord of the Worlds
We will destroy the chair of the despots, so they will taste the flame of death.
We will lead a war.”
