    Palestinians shelve Islamic "Mickey Mouse" TV show

    GAZA, May 9 (Reuters) - The Palestinian government urged Hamas on Wednesday to shelve a children's show on a Hamas television station in which a Mickey Mouse lookalike calls for Israel to be vanquished and Islam to "lead the world".

    "Tomorrow's Pioneers", which attracted complaints from Israeli groups, features a host, Farfur, dressed in a full body-suit to resemble Walt Disney's famous cartoon character.
    He and a young female co-host instruct their young viewers on Hamas's militant brand of Muslim piety.

    "We will restore to this nation its glory, and we will liberate (Jerusalem mosque) Al-Aqsa, with Allah's will, and we will liberate Iraq, with Allah's will, and we will liberate the Muslim countries invaded by murderers," Farfur said in one show.

    Following complaints by Israeli watchdog groups that attracted foreign scrutiny, Palestinian Information Minister Mustafa Barghouthi said he had asked that broadcasts of "Tomorrow's Pioneers" be halted so the show's content could be reviewed.

    "I urged that Hamas suspend the programme and they have withdrawn it, because it was wrong to use a programme directed at children to convey political messages," said Barghouthi, a political independent in the Hamas-led Palestinian government.

    "Any media outlet that breaks Palestinian broadcasting law will be penalised by the Information Ministry," he told Reuters.


    A Hamas official said the group's Al-Aqsa Television station was considering a possible change to the show's format. The next episode is scheduled for broadcast on Friday.
    Hamas advocates Israel be destroyed and replaced by a pan-Islamic Arab confederation, a doctrine at odds with Palestinians who have been fighting for independence in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza, alongside the Jewish state.

    Disney declined comment on "Tomorrow's Pioneers". A daughter of the U.S. entertainment firm's founder cried foul, however.

    "The world loves children and this (show) is just going against the grain of humanity," Diane Disney Miller told the New York Daily News.
    "What we're dealing with here is pure evil and you can't ignore that."

    Re: Islamic "Mickey Mouse" Show Given The Heave Ho

    i've seen this a week or so ago on t.v I think it's so funny that they hate us so much, yet they copy us by having the same kind of childrens characters on t.v, and the message that they are giving children about us with a character from the U.S.

    This question begs to be asked. Why didn't Disney go to court and sue over this? An absolutely blatant copyright infringement like this should have resulted in lawsuits hours after this story came out. Why didn't it happen?

    Jealousy and double standards have always worked hand in hand. Among everything else, these fanatical zealots are immature and incapable of original thought. In their Koran, they refer to all those who are not Islamics as infadels. Simply put, they are low level verman. What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the Islamic Jihad extremist.

    During WWII. Walt Disney and company supported our troups and spoke out against Hitler's Natzi terroism with every resorse that was at his disposal. Although I cannot say for certain why the Walt Disney Company has not fought against copywrite infringement, I strongly suspect that the company today is spineless. I really believe that they fear Islamic reprisal.

    Plus, as the multinational company is solidly embeded in the world community. This means that Disney prefers to look cool, and to not do anything that might inspire criticism from wealthy elitists that do business with cultures that have connections with terrorists.
