The former Arab voice of Disney character Donald Duck has called on Israel to be “demolished” via his Twitter account.
Wael Mansour, who bills himself as the “official voice of Donald Duck in Disney MiddleEast,” said he wishes for Israel to be “demolished” and that “there are no Jews who are Zionists at the same time.”
“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 stated on Sunday in a tweet first reported on by the Algemeiner.
Following widespread criticism, Mansour stood by his remarks, tweeting: “I don’t know why insulting #Israel & #Zionism is ‘Anti-Semitic’?! They are just a bunch of Polish/ Ethiopian immigrants roughly 70 years old.”
Mansour has previously done Donald Duck voiceover work but is no longer under contract with the company, a Disney spokesperson told the Washington Free Beacon.
“He was a third party contractor,” the spokesperson said. “He doesn’t represent the company in any way.”
Mansour was not under contract with Disney when he made his controversial remarks about Israel, the spokesperson said.
Asked if Mansour would be hired for future voice over work, the spokesperson said, “What do you think?”
Mansour has continued to rail against Israel and Zionism since first advocating for Israel’s destruction.
“The Zionist entity is a racist entity by definition,” Mansour later told Algemeiner when asked for comment. “Performing crimes of hate by the power of its criminal law. I stand firm by what I said.”
“There are no Jews who are Zionists at the same time,” Mansour added. “The rest of the Jews are the real Jews.”
When one Jewish Twitter user told Mansour that he is both Jewish and a Zionist, the former Donald Duck replied, “If you're Jewish I'd love you but unfortunately you are a Zionist.”
Additionally, Mansour said all Palestinians “have the right to go back to their homeland,” meaning the state of Israel.
