Europe silences Al-Aqsa TV, home of everybody’s favorite Killer Bunny

Spiegel Online: “Oh Jerusalem we are coming. Oh Jerusalem, it is the time of death…”

With the sound turned down, one children’s show on Al-Aqsa Television looks like a new take on Bugs Bunny, but Assoud the rabbit is far less benign than his carrot-chomping colleague.

Last year the show’s Islamist producers in Gaza killed him off on the set as the victim of an Israeli bombing …

Stories like this – with their messages of martyrdom and death – are commonplace on Al-Aqsa Television, which is owned by Hamas.

They are made attractive to children with the use of characters like Assoud or Farfour, a Mickey Mouse lookalike, who also died when Israeli soldiers apparently beat him to death.

In another show last year, several children watch a video re-enactment of the real life death of their mother in a suicide bombing.

When they talk about a “population explosion” in Gaza, they’re not referring to demographics. Europe will now be denied these charming scenes:

The French broadcasting regulator, CSA, is banning Al-Aqsa TV in Europe … Al-Aqsa Television says the CSA ban will cost it 70 per cent of its viewers, but it will continue broadcasting in Africa and the Middle East.

There are plenty of domestic alternatives, too, as the ABC reports: “Even without Al-Aqsa Television, Hamas has a raft of other media outlets; including two radio stations, two newspapers, a magazine and an active film industry.” No supply shortages there …
