…according to this New York Times piece. Except check out this delightful bit:
“Two months ago, a show for children featured a talking yellow bird that responded to questions from youngsters in the audience.
A little girl asked what the bird would do if someone cut down the olive trees in front of her house.
The bird replied: ‘I’ll call the whole world and make a riot. I’ll bring AK-47’s and the whole world and commit a massacre in front of the house.’
Shortly afterward, Mr. Abu Ayyash, the broadcasting chief, acknowledged that it was inappropriate and removed the show.”
