Stewart Mocks Hamas TV
Points to shoddy animation (and horrifying anti-Semitism)
Jon Stewart weighs in on Hamas’s new children’s television show, A Special Mission—the one in which Fatah policeman Bahlul is a satrap to an Israeli soldier with long sidecurls and a penchant for machine-gunning Palestinian children and drinking their blood.
The clip is worth watching, particularly for Stewart’s own cartoon, “Jewby Doo.” And also for this advice, regarding the A Special Mission’s cheap production value: “Hey Hamas, two words—MacBook Pro!”

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
