Another Gaza casualty: Assud the Killer Rabbit

The MEMRI blog gives a heads-up that Assud the Bunny, current star of the famous Hamas TV show "Pioneers of Tomorrow," is dying in a Gaza hospital after being killed by the IDF.

It is a thankless job, as the previous stars of the show have suffered similar fates. Nahoul the Bee died from an illness when he couldn't be treated properly in a Gaza hospital, and Farfour the Mouse - perhaps in fear of being sued by Disney - who was beaten to death by Israeli soldiers.

Given the 100% fatality rate that Hamas cartoon characters have, it is entirely possible that a large percentage of Gaza casualties are, in fact, these mascots of terror. (This is what passes for "statistics" in Gaza, anyway.)
