Farfur jumps the shark

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Farfur, the terrorist mouse with a bow tie, is dead.

The Hamas affiliated television station that produced the children’s show featuring Farfur, who urged Palestinian children to conquer Israel, broadcast the final episode on Friday. An actor portraying an Israeli trying to steal Farfur’s land beat the mouse to death.

An actor in a black and white Mickey Mouse suit with a bow tie portrayed Farfur, who danced and sang songs in a high-pitched voice.

“Farfur was martyred while defending his land,” the Associated Press quoted Sara, the teen presenter, as saying, adding that the perpetrators were “the killers of children.”
