This cartoon sort of reminds me of a militant Islamist Davey and Goliath:
Iranian state television has broadcast a cartoon that glorifies suicide bombings against Israelis, depicting a young boy blowing himself up after being told: “Go and show the Zionists how brave and heroic are the children of Palestine.”
The cartoon, one of a series shown by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting on “Jerusalem Day” nine days ago, presents the actions of a boy who kills himself to strike back against Israelis as a noble example for children to follow.
Remember Davey and Goliath? You know, the clay-mation kid and his big, goofily-talking dog? Josh and I used to watch it, occasionally. It was sort of like Gumby for gentiles. Being Jewish kids, I don’t really recall how we processed it. Uh, anyway, that’s off-topic. The point is, there’s really not much you can do to fix a society that inculcates murder and hatred into its children the way militant Islam does. What to do?
(Thanks to the open-minded Carol at Alabama Improper for the pointer.)
