Egyptian Donald Duck turns on Israel

By JC Reporter, February 13, 2014

An Egyptian man has been fired from his role as the voice of the Arabic version of Donald Duck after he called for the destruction of Israel in a tweet.

Wael Mansour, a radio personality and a voice artist from Cairo, tweeted last August: “I truly wish #Israel is demolished, I hate Zionism, I have so much hate inside me with every single child they murder or land they seize!” The message was re-tweeted more than 950 times.

After Walt Disney made the decision to drop Mr Mansour from his role, he posted a message on Twitter saying that he was “proud” of the punishment.
