The hottest new animated children’s show on Hamas’s Al Aqsa TV is called A Special Mission. It follows a Palestinian Authority police officer named Bahlul—that’s Arabic for “buffoon”—who spends his days receiving U.S. sponsorship and slavishly kissing up to an Israeli soldier. The soldier wears sidecurls and a black hat and, in the first episode, machine-guns Palestinian children to death and drinks their blood. Bahlul responds: “You killed our children before my eyes. I will respond with even more peace.”
Truly grotesque and unreconstructed anti-Semitism aside, it is somewhat interesting that Hamas is so explicitly lodging anti-Palestinian Authority propaganda. Although it is clear that Hamas does not consider the P.A. to be its true enemy.
But, as they say, watch the whole thing:
UPDATE: Hamas has actually gone down this road before, using cartoons to propagandize against the P.A. In this 2007 cartoon, Fatah leader Mohammed Dahlan, who appears as a rat along with his rat-stooge Zionist-loving Fatah friends, destroys mosques and desecrates the Koran until he is stopped by the Hamas Lion, who was apparently kidnapped from Disney’s The Lion King to Gaza.
