Pseudostinian Propaganda

Aimed at children, of course.

From "World In Brief" in the August 25, 2007 edition of the Washington Post,
Hamas is televising a cartoon with a "Lion King"-type character to portray the Islamic group's victory in the Gaza Strip over the Fatah movement. In May, Hamas-run TV used a Mickey Mouse knockoff to preach Islamic domination to children. After an uproar among Israelis and Palestinians, the character was killed off.

Excerpt from this posting at Jihad Watch:
The piece shows rats trampling over Gaza, burning houses, stepping over homes, uprooting trees, firing at mosques and desecrating the Quran, Islam's holy book.

Their leader is clearly a portrayal of Fatah's former Gaza strongman, Mohammed Dahlan, who has fled Gaza. Wearing a tie and smoking a cigar, the chief rat grabs a microphone and tells the crowd: "Move back and let Hamas shoot me." Dahlan made that comment during the showdown with Hamas, and his voice is dubbed into the scene.

Throughout the video, the lion silently watches the rats, preparing his claws and shaking his mane. When he pounces, the rats flee in terror as he knocks them about with his claws. Injured and limping rats then say: "Off to the West Bank."
