Farfur the Mouse

From today's New York Times, the tale of Farfur, a suspiciously Mickey-like Mouse who's been appearing on a children's television show in the Gaza Strip, helping the kids get their moral priorities straight:

On Friday Farfur, a buffoonish figure, was seen cheating on exams. Asked why, he answered, "Because the Jews destroyed my home and I left my books and notes under the rubble."

Another child told him this was no excuse for cheating, and after he failed the test, Farfur said, "I'm calling on all children to read more and more to prepare for exams because the Jews don't want us to learn."

Disney lawyers and the morbidly curious can find streaming video of the show, with English subtitles, at http://www.memritv.org/.

Um. Wow. Well, now you know what I do in my spare time. I prevent Palestinian kids from studying. [/snerk]

Charming. Thanks for the tip, Matt.
