My 4-year-old son enjoys watching short videos at the computer. Last night, he asked me for one.
"What video do you want?" I asked.
"A Mickey Mouse video."
I duly started a Google search for video mickey mouse. However, as you guess, the Disney products are very heavily copyrighted, so my search produced different Mickey Mouse-related stuff rather than the real thing. No. 5 of the items found was the video shown above, Hamas Mickey Mouse Teaches Terror to Kids, by Palestinian Media Watch.
It hardly needs my comment, but I'd like to cite what Freedom for Egyptians wrote about another headscarved and indoctrinated little girl: "The girl is wearing a scarf?? Is this the definition of a childhood for what they call themselves "true Muslims". This is childhood abuse and there is no difference between it and childhood pornography. She is wearing it because her parents are teaching her that males are thirsty dogs who will try to rape her at any time."
UPDATE: For readers who for technical reasons cannot see the video, and also in case the video stops being available, I've written down the subtitles:
Al Aqsa TV (Hamas), Apr. 16, 2007
Mickey Mouse: We are setting with you the cornerstone for world leadership under Islamic leadership.
Girl –TV show host: 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.
Mickey Mouse: From Palestine, oh Saraa, what do you mean? From Gaza, Jerusalem, Ramallah, or from all of Palestine?
Girl – TV show host: Yes, from all of Palestine. Many say that we had glory, and we had culture, and the Muslims had greatness and respect.
Mickey Mouse: We, tomorrow’s pioneers, will restore to this nation its glory. 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.
Girl – TV show host: Yes, they are children [in Palestine] occupied by the Jews, but with the will of Allah, we will resist and protect against the Zionist occupation.
Mickey Mouse: Until we win, with the will of Allah, we will resist until we win.
Al Aqsa TV (Hamas), Apr. 23, 2007
Esraa (12) on the phone (sings): We will surrender ourselves.
Mickey Mouse: No!
Girl – TV show host: Esraa, it’s not a good song. Why? Because it has surrender. We don’t want to surrender, we want to resist against the enemy.
Mickey Mouse: Allah willing, Allah willing, this country, its children, its men, its women, and its elderly – will win! 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! We will win, Condoleeza!
Girl – TV show host: I remind you that Al-Aqsa and the prisoners are a trust on our shoulders, and Allah will ask us on Resurrection Day what have we offered for their sake.
Al Aqsa TV (Hamas), Apr. 30, 2007
Harwa (11) on the phone (sings, Mickey Mouse is dancing): The people firmly stand, singing this to you. Rafah sings “Oh oh”. Its answer is AK-47. We who do not know fear, we are the predators of the forest.
Muhammad (12) on the phone (sings, Mickey Mouse is dancing): Oh Jerusalem, we are coming. Oh Jerusalem, it is the time of death. Oh Jerusalem, we will never surrender to the enemy, and 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. We will destroy the chair of the despots. It is the time of death, we will fight a war.
