Here Comes Peter Cottontail, Hoppin’ Down the Jihad Trail

posted by on February 27 at 16:29 PM

This Palestinian children’s TV show CAN’T be real, can it? And if so, is this Jew-eating jihad bunny gonna come for The Stranger one day?!

Man, and I always thought watching all those Little House on the Prairie reruns after school was upsetting…

Why do you wear that stupid suicide bomber suit?

So that's where Buckley went when he died ... how did he get the bunny suit on?

another generation, lost.

I'd be curious who made this translation and how accurate it is. Anyone out there able to verify it?

Posted by apttitle | February 27, 2008 4:56 PM

Of course it's real. Palestinian TV is a steady stream of exhortations to suicide bombing and low-grade Naziism.

fnarf is 100% right - this stuff is 100% real... It's child abuse, IMO, and murderous, brain-washing indoctrination. They used to have a Mickey Mouse-style character on this show, who was "killed" by evil Jews... Chilling.....

The saddest thing about that clip is knowing that even little kids have to put up with crawl at the bottom of screens. I would have watch a lot less tv as a kid if I had to put up with crawl.

Posted by stinkbug | February 27, 2008 6:34 PM

On a practical note, how do they get kids to sit still through this? Their scary propaganda isn't even in the form of songs or skits!

I don't know how to pronounce "Danish" in Arabic, but it sounds like IKEA.

Boycott all IKEA products.

Posted by Bont | February 27, 2008 7:13 PM

Now that I've watched it all, I notice they say "Allah willing" a lot. Everything is done, or not done, by Allah's will. Does that mean Allah willed that Danish guy to make those cartoons?

Posted by Bont | February 27, 2008 7:26 PM

It's great when they say "we've remained quiet long enough". No dumb-asses you've remained hysterical and fanatical long enough, it's become the norm. Let us know when you AREN'T angry for a change. Unless we hear differently we'll assume you're at your baseline- psychotic

My oral translation skills are not perfect, but everything I understood was translated correctly.

Posted by Megan W | February 27, 2008 8:14 PM

Well they have a girl hosting, so that's pretty progressive, right?

Posted by Yay For Feminism! | February 27, 2008 8:51 PM

palestinians are like pit bulls....they can be gentle,loveing , peaceful creatures
but keep them locked in a cage of there own filth with little food or water while throwing firecrackers at them for years and they will turn into mean motherfuckers

should we put all them down to?
or get them outside out of the cage...with lots pf tlc mixed with discipline

Posted by linus | February 27, 2008 10:13 PM

scratch that last part about tlc and crap out. Come to think of it the best simpleist solution to mad dogs is simple elimination. But not just the palestinians...the israles to

Posted by linus | February 27, 2008 10:56 PM

They have very well-spoken and mature young girl hosting. I'm impressed.

Posted by kmonkey | February 28, 2008 5:34 AM

They have little food and water, but plenty of American, Danish, and Israli flags to burn. Along with the resources to stage mock funeral processions for the danish cartoonists. Oh yeah, and there is this TV show. It would be easier to belive how destitute they were if they didn't always have the equipment to produce hate propoganda

Posted by jane doe | February 28, 2008 7:19 AM

Religion sucks. This is so disturbing! We have got to rid the world of this kind of insidious hate-filled religious brain-washing.

Posted by Justin | February 28, 2008 7:32 AM

Gee, I am sure all of those "moderate" Muslims here in the US are totally up in arms over this sort of fucked up brain washing. Right?

Life would be better without religion, it really would be.

Posted by Andrew | February 28, 2008 8:09 AM

Wow, so I guess they found someone to replace their former Mickey Mouse mascot. I wonder if the bunny will eventually be "killed by IDF agents" too...

Posted by Hernandez | February 28, 2008 8:27 AM

This is the same TV show which Disney sued, as they were using a character who looked an awful lot like Mickey Mouse.

Posted by Princess Sparkle Pony | February 28, 2008 9:29 AM

Reminds me of a joke I heard the other day. Take any flight to a muslim country, and upon landing, you'll hear this announcement from the captain: "Welcome to Saudi Arabia (or wherever), please set your watches back 500 years."

Posted by john cocktosin | February 28, 2008 9:50 AM

Kelly O:
Your comment about "this can't be real, can it?" when these kid shows have been covered extensively, for years, by right-wing blogs, just might be seen as proof by the right that the left really does have its head in the sand when it comes to the disturbing nature of the Islamic threat.
Before you all go nuts, I'm not saying this; this is not some halfassed support of the right or a bash on the left, but the right-wing does seem much better plugged in as to the nature and details of the fundamentalist movement and culture in the Middle East. It's intolerant, violent, brain-washing and kid-coercing, and it's very, very ugly.

Posted by torrentprime | February 28, 2008 10:24 AM

How do they practice birth control in Palestine?
They have eight kids and con six of them to blow themselves up on a bus.
They forget that the 72 virgins Allah has promised them are fat, ugly and mentally retarded. Why do you think they're still virgins, Ahkmed?

Posted by Blackhat35 | February 29, 2008 6:14 AM


The whole thing about virgins has long since been translated to '72 raisins'. The raisins they posessed back then were large, juicy, plump, hard to come by, and highly prized.

No this is not a joke, it is literally true, the original meaning of that scripture is that martyrs will get 72 raisins.

Posted by Jim | February 29, 2008 7:18 AM

Blackhat35, I just looked that up. And there is a book "Die Syro-Aramaische Lesart des Koran" by Christoph Luxenberg that asserts that 'whites' refers to white raisins rather than unsullied women. But, 'long since' is a stretch, and this isn't generally accepted.,2763,631357,00.html

I'd like to pick up on an earlier comment about who translated this show. It seems dumb that no-one here gives a thought to who did the translation and what axe they might have to grind. (FYI, Memri TV is "a 501 (c)3 organization and is incorporated in Washington, D.C.")

Not saying that they're necessarily biased against Palestinian nationalism, but I think we should consider the possibility that we're being manipulated here.
