Hamas TV Show Abuses Animals to Teach Kids Lesson Hamas TV Show Abuses Animals to Teach Kids Lesson The latest episode of a popular Hamas childrenâ€™s TV show features its main character cruelly swinging cats by their tails and throwing stones at caged lions in the Gaza zoo. The episode of Tomorrowâ€™s Pioneers features a costumed adult playing Nahool the Bee at the zoo, tormenting domestic cats and lions. The lions become so enraged by the abuse that one of them repeatedly tries to attack Nahool. Every time Nahool swings a cat by the tail, an act that can cause permanent physical and behavior problems for the animal, children can be heard bursting into laughter Ironically, the decision to terrorize and inflict physical pain on real animals in the episode is an attempt to teach children not to abuse animals. When the program returns to the studio, the children in the audience criticize Nahool for his behavior, and he is told never to do it again. Note: Nahool is the character that replaced Farfur, the Mickey Mouse clone that was killed off in response to widespread international outrage that a knockoff of the lovable Walt Disney character was teaching children about hatred and world Islamic domination. (By Itamar Marcus and Barbara Cook, Palestinian Media Watch, August 13, 2007) Prayer Focus Pray that those who defend children and animal rights will be outraged by this travesty of moral and civilized behavior. Scripture â€œDefend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needyâ€ (Psalm 82:3).
