Via LGF:

Here's a video with clips from Hamas TV, featuring children singing a song of praise for Qassam rockets, followed by a visit with creepy child host Saraa and Assud the giant Jew-eating rabbit in his hospital room, shortly before the whiny carnivorous bunny died from his IDF-inflicted injuries.

You'll laugh! You'll cry! You'll wonder, "Could this be the reason Jimmuh was afraid? No wonder he's addled."

Gaza is the World's largest Mental Hospital and the patients are running the asylum.

Nappy didn't get all the Hebrew in the subtitles, but couldn't help noticing that one of the places these young nationalists promise to return to in their imminent victorious reclamation of their homeland is ... (drum roll) ... Tel Aviv!

Yes, that small settlement built on the sand dunes near Jaffa in 1909 taking its name from the title of the first translation into Hebrew of Herzl's utopian novel "Altneueland," Tel-Aviv is now claimed as part of the nonexistent Palestinian people's eternal patrimony. Talk about revisionist history!

Back when the term "Palestinians" still referred to the Yishuv, that is to say, the Jews living in Palestine, the mayor of Jaffa lost his bet with Tel-Aviv's mayor Meir Dizengoff about Tel Aviv's hosting an international trade fair. In April, 1932,

The "Flying Camel" is the logo of the first International Levante Fair with exhibitors from 24 countries. ("Such a fair will take place only when camels fly" is said to have been the skeptical remark by the mayor of Jaffa.)
Yes, that Tel-Aviv is now claimed as part of Arab Palestine.

Nappy hasn't been to Israel in a long, long time. But the next time, Nappy will be sure to go on The Flying Camel ride in Luna Park, the amusement park built next to the grounds of the trade fair. From The NY Times, April 26, 1936:

TEL AVIV PREPARES ITS GREATEST FAIR; Norway, Turkey and Greece Will Be Among New Exhibitors at Levant Display. AVIATION SECTION IS ADDED Dramatic Performances Also Are Arranged for the Event, Which Opens Thursday.

By JOSEPH M. LEVY, Special Correspondence, THE NEW YORK TIMES.

TEL AVIV, Palestine, April 2. -- Once more the Flying Camel will spread its wings on the shores of the Mediterranean as the emblem of the Levant Fair, which opens at Tel Aviv on April 30. Now an institution in this modern young city, this exposition bids fair to surpass any of the many thus far held here.

"Syme: It's a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. You wouldn't have seen the [Newspeak] Dictionary 10th edition, would you Smith? It's that thick. [illustrates thickness with fingers] The 11th Edition will be that [narrows fingers] thick. Winston Smith: So, The Revolution will be complete when the language is perfect? Syme: The secret is to move from translation, to direct thought, to automatic response. No need for self-discipline. Language coming from here [the larynx], not from here [the brain]" -1984 (film)
