Stewart Mocks Hamas TV

Points to shoddy animation (and horrifying anti-Semitism)

Jon Stewart weighs in on Hamas’s new children’s television show, A Special Mission—the one in which Fatah policeman Bahlul is a satrap to an Israeli soldier with long sidecurls and a penchant for machine-gunning Palestinian children and drinking their blood.

The clip is worth watching, particularly for Stewart’s own cartoon, “Jewby Doo.” And also for this advice, regarding the A Special Mission’s cheap production value: “Hey Hamas, two words—MacBook Pro!”
