The Arab voice of Donald Duck has been fired by Disney Middle East for anti-Israel tweets, the Jerusalem Post reports.
Wael Mansour, who billed himself as “the official voice of Donald Duck in Disney Middle East,” announced on Feb. 6 that he was fired as the official voice.
Disney decided I am no longer the official voice of DonaldDuck in it’s middle-east dubbed cartoons because of an anti Zionism tweet. Proud!

The reason for his firing was an anti-Israel tweet from August 2013.
“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!” Mansour tweeted.
Mansour was not directly employed by Disney. He was contracted through a dubbing company.
