Nassur the Bear is the Latest Hamas Children TV Inciter

A puppet bear named Nassur appeared Friday on Hamas's Al-Aqsa TV, promising to be a Jihad fighter, and declaring war on "the Zionists". He replaced Farfur the Mickey Mouse look-alike, Nahoul the bee and Assoud the rabbit -- who were all killed by "Zionist agents" on the TV show.

Palestinian Media Watch translated the video, according to which, Nassur carries on a dialogue with a girl named Saraa as follows:

Nassur: "I will join the ranks of the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam [Hamas'] Brigades. I will be a Jihad fighter with them and I will carry a rifle. Do you know why, Saraa?" Saraa: "Why?" Nassur: "To defend the children of Palestine, the children who were killed, the children who were wounded, the orphaned children. That's why, from this moment, I declare war on the criminal Zionists. Not only me, me and you. You are ready, right, Saraa?" Saraa: "We are all ready to sacrifice ourselves for our homeland!"
