TV for children

I have always been appalled by what Palestinian children get to watch on TV. Not only Farfur the Islamist Mickey Mouse clone, but everything those children have been subjected to for the past decade or so. Growing up in Israel I never heard a single call for violence or sacrifice for a greater cause. The songs I heard on the television never included the words "kalashnikov".

This is the TV I grew up with

They are singing their different fruit names in both Hebrew and Arabic. Wouldn't any normal parent want that their kid watch that rather than Farfur?
