The Passion of the Mouse


Farfour, RIP:

farfourHamas TV has axed a Mickey Mouse lookalike who made worldwide headlines for preaching Islamic domination and armed struggle to youngsters.

The station broadcast what it said was the last episode of a weekly children's show featuring the character named Farfour.

In the final skit, Farfour was beaten to death by an actor posing as an Israeli official trying to buy Farfour's land….

"Farfour was martyred while defending his land," said Sara, the teen presenter.

Or maybe it wasn't his land that was the problem:

Station officials said Farfour was taken off the air to make room for new programmes.

Farfour: the first known instance of a rodent killed because he had lousy ratings.
