From Anti-Semitic Hate Speech in the Name of Islam: Farfur, the cartoon character on Hamas’ children’s television program, is a carbon copy of Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse. But the Hamas version does something that Mickey would never do: He entertains children while propagating the murder of Jews. Farfur’s appearances are typical of Hamas’ anti-Semitic propaganda, which the organization also exports to Germany via satellite, hoping to breed new generations of fanatical anti-Semites and suicide bombers. According to a 2007 study by the German Interior Ministry on the worldviews of “Muslims in Germany,” “anti-Semitic attitudes were found among young Muslims far
