More Hate TV From Hamas

Jerusalem ( - The Hamas television station that brings anti-Israel propaganda to children is doing it again -- this time with a puppet of President Bush who is killed by a Muslim child.

Hamas' Al-Aksa satellite television station aired a children's puppet show on Sunday in which the Bush puppet is stabbed to death by a puppet identified as an orphaned child. The child puppet blames Bush for killing his relatives.

The puppet show is part of a weekly children's program that imitates the news and delivers sermons. A translation was provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

The anti-American message is clear: The President Bush puppet, dressed in an army uniform and black boxing gloves, asks to speak to the child's parents, but the child replies that he is an orphan.

"You killed daddy in the Iraq war," the puppet says. "As for my mom -- you and the criminal Zionists killed her in Lebanon. You and the criminal Zionists also killed my younger and older brothers in the Gaza holocaust. I'm an orphan, you criminal!" the child cries.

The puppet vows to take revenge on Bush with "this sword of Islam."

"I have brought thousands [and] thousands of children from Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Afghanistan. You have denied all these children their fathers and mothers. That's why I have come to take revenge on you and on all the criminal traitors who collaborated with you," he says.

The child puppet repeatedly stabs Bush, after telling him the White House has been turned into "a great mosque for the nation of Islam."

Hamas television drew international attention last year when it used a Mickey Mouse lookalike (an adult costumed as a mouse) on another children's show to promote worldwide Islamic supremacy.

The mouse eventually was beaten to death by an "Israeli interrogator" for refusing to sell his land, and he was replaced by a giant, jihadi bumblebee called Nahoul.

Nahoul vowed revenge but his character becomes ill and dies when the Israeli closure of the Gaza Strip prevents him from getting medical care in Egypt. Nahoul's cousin, a rabbit named Assud, takes his place and pledges to get rid of all the Jews by eating them.

Palestinian Media Watch Director Itamar Marcus has accused Hamas of using attractive characters to promote death and brainwash Palestinian children.
