New Anti-Israel Campaign Shows Israeli Leaders Killing Disney Characters

French Senator Nathalie Goulet supports the unusual, and offensive, campaign

A new campaign is sprouting up on Twitter, thanks to controversial French senator Nathalie Goulet, of the Union of Democrats and Independents party, who's been promoting and praising its message.

The campaign consists of fake images depicting Israeli leaders killing iconic Disney characters, likely to tug on the heartstrings of anyone who grew up during the Disney generation - which is all of us.

A few days ago, Goulet tweeted images of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu beating Pinocchio to death with a mallet, accompanied by the caption: He Never Became A Real Boy, Save the Innocence in Palestine; Israeli Justice minister Tzipi Livni stabbing Cinderella - "She Could Never Dream Again," and former President Shimon Peres with an usually evil grin on his face choking Peter Pan - "He Was Forced to Grow Up."

All three of the iconic film characters are depicting as holding Palestinian flags before their respective deaths at the hands of Israel's most recognized politicians.

Alongside the images Goulet wrote, "Very powerful campaign against children mass murder."


Goulet has since apologized for whatever 'misunderstandings' may have arisen as part of her support of this brutally offensive campaign: “This tweet has been misunderstood and I’m absolutely sorry for that but I persist in saying that what’s happening in Gaza is a scandal. I revolt at the sight of dead children, and at the international community’s silence. The tweet may have been inappropriate,” she wrote.

She preceded the quote by adding she herself has Jewish roots. “I am not a self-hating Jew, but that’s nobody’s business,” she wrote on Twitter.

Mehdi Thomas Allal, Head of the anti-discrimination department of Terra Nova, a human rights group, has since called out Goulet, saying through promoting the campaign she was “presenting Jews as killers of children, echoing many such caricatures in the period before World War II,” referring to Nazi propaganda that vilified Jews in a very similar manner. He added that this was “a slip toward anti-Semitism.”

Goulet, continuing to defend herself, responded, saying “Anti-Semitism is what they come up withwhen they have nothing better to say,” and, “I find it astonishing that the community is less shocked by images of dead children than by Disney characters. This is proof the campaign is working!”


Recently, reports confirmed that actually 160 children were killed after Hamas forced them to build the terror tunnels Israel had destroyed during Operation Protective Edge. Other reports, from foreign journalists, show how Hamas deliberately positions rockets in dense, civilian-populated areas, particularly where there's many children.
