Return of the terror mouse

A Mickey Mouse lookalike that advocates Israel’s destruction reappeared on Hamas TV, dancing to a song about the conquest of Jerusalem. Mustafa Barghouti, the Palestinian Authority information minister, this week ordered Al Aksa television to stop broadcasting “Tomorrow’s Pioneers,” featuring Farfur, a man dressed in a Mickey Mouse tuxedo outfit, after Israeli watchdog groups brought international attention to the mouse’s call on toddlers to join in destroying Israel. Farfur was back on the air Friday, however, taking a phone call from a little girl. She sang “Jerusalem we are coming, we will not rest and we will not be humiliated,” while Farfur danced, Reuters reported.
