This just doesn’t seem like a good idea. I know public broadcasting has to go somewhere with all the heat they’ve taken lately, but this feels like some “gotcha” scheme concocted between NPR and apologists for the Muslim Brotherhood after the James O’Keefe sting which had Schiller red-handed on tape cozying up to Muslim Brotherhood members in hopes of a $5 million contribution. Sleazy is the word that comes to mind.
But back to the Muppets, aside from yet another ridiculous tax expenditure with this $20 million remake of Sesame Street for Pakistan prime-time, how do we know what words they’ll put into Miss Piggy or Kermit’s mouth? I don’t speak Urdu. Are we gonna take their word for it? You know the concept of taqiyya or holy deception, right?
A part of me wants there to be a counter to the Saudi funded, boys-only Madrassas all over the world (including America BTW), which drums in hardline Sharia law, hatred of Jews, Israel, America and the Western culture.
How do we prevent the Muppet scripts from being translated into hate and kill directives from the Koran? I doubt if Miss Piggy’s “Guide to Life” (especially given the Islamic prohibition against pork!) will be replacing mandatory Koranic memorization required of Muslim children all over the world.
