Farfour is dead.
The lovable Palestinian Mickey-Mouse doppelganger was beaten to death by an "Israeli" official in the final episode of his Hamas-TV children's program.
No disgruntled, closure-seeking fans here. In fact, Farfour's diapered devotees seemed to get the message quite well:
"We don't like the Jews because they are dogs! We will fight them! They killed Farfour!" exclaimed 3-year-old Shaimaa', whose call was broadcast on the show.
Yes, agreed the young girl who co-hosted the show: "The Jews are criminals and enemies. We must expel them from our land."
In its brief life, Farfour's show - called "Tomorrow's Pioneers" - has been denounced as everything from "pure evil" (Walt Disney's daughter) to a "mistaken approach" (the Palestinian Authority).
How about "typical"?
Hamas works overtime to further its bloodthirsty ideology. Is anyone really surprised that it would poison its children like this?
It's small comfort that the rat's finally dead.
