Hamas, Children & Jon Stewart

It’s that time again. Welcome to the monthly edition of “Jon Stewart Has A Jewish Segment!” Of course, if you watched the Daily Show on a regular basis, you’d know that basically every single night there is (formally or informally) a Jewish segment.

But last night’s segment sure will please the Zionists. Stewart, who sometimes angers some in the Jewish community for his occasional critiques of Israeli policies, focused this time, however, on Palestinian television. Namely their children programming. And, pardon my French, but he sure did rip them a new one.

That’ll teach ’em Jon! You heard me Hamas? You don’t mess with Comedy Central.
