A children's puppet show aired on Hamas TV Monday featured a child stabbing President Bush to death and turning the White House into a mosque. The script of the controversial sketch was translated into English by The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), an independent non-profit organization which analyzes and translates Middle Eastern media. In the sketch, "President Bush" is caught off-guard by a Muslim child who breaks into the White House. "Get out," Bush orders the intruder, "bring your father.....or mother so I can talk to them... somebody older and smarter." "You killed daddy in the Iraq war," the boy responds. "As for my mom - you and the criminal Zionists killed her in Lebanon. You and the criminal Zionists also killed my younger and older brothers in the Gaza holocaust." The boy continues with a declaration of his solidarity with "thousands of thousands of children from Palestine, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Afghanistan," whom Bush has "denied their fathers and mothers." The sketch ends with the hapless president begging for his life to no avail. "You are impure and I've turned the White House into a mosque," says his attacker before "stabbing the president repeatedly," according to the translated script directions. "Ahhh, I killed him," he declares.
