The Indominable Mickey Mouse

I had a few cynical laughs while and after reading an excellent commentary by Michael Goodwin on Hamas' using a clone of Mickey Mouse to teach Palestinian Arab children to kill Jews. By the time the column appeared in my local newspaper, Palestinian Authority Minister of Information Mustafa Barghouti had reacted to criticism by announcing the cartoon character would be taken off the air until a review was done, as if there was concern about teaching children to murder.

Then I checked my email and saw that pretense was doubly phony, that Farfur was still on the air.
