Do you wonder about the cartoons your kids are watching on Saturday morning? Check out the equivalent of Bugs Bunny in Iran.

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.

A detailed description of the cartoon, reaction and analysis of its fallout below:

The story wasn't at the link but I found it here by goggling some of the quotes in Rick’s original post:

Things like that as well as a nuclear capability may very well find Iran being the next country to be "liberated" by bombers. Seriously what are they hoping for here....another war? Wasn't the Iraq - Iran war a huge waste and it had nothing to do with "Zionists".

To see hatred like this in the twenty first century amazes me...to see twentieth century technology used to spread this hate makes it worse. Disney used to do propaganda cartoons during WWII but this is far worst.

This is why some Iranians I know left that country.
