‎Fox News reports on death of Hamas Mickey Mouse

Fox News gives a follow-up report on Hamas' Mickey Mouse character ‎Farfur, in his final appearance as victim and Martyr in a violent death scene ‎at the hands of the Israelis.

Well, Palestinian Media Watch monitored Farfur, and the revelation that the ‎propaganda device was being used to brainwash children sparked ‎international outrage, so Hamas TV promised to take it off the air. And they ‎did, but it turns out Farfur was beaten to death.

Palestinian Media Watch's head Itamar Marcus denounced Farfur, ‎the Fatah-run Palestinian broadcasters also criticized using that character to ‎teach hate, but Hamas, defiant, the mouse, no more, has demised part of ‎Hamas' political message..."‎
