Evolution of IDF on Hamas KidTV

Someone is posting a lot of Hamas' kid TV shows on YouTube (not translated.) It is interesting to compare how Hamas characterized the IDF during Cast Lead and how it does it now.

During the operation, Hamas showed IDF soldiers as hapless, bumbling and incompetent, as this clip shows of a fearful soldier who gets killed as he realizes he ran out of ammunition:

The only blood in that videoclip was Israeli, as opposed to how Hamas now shows the war to Gaza children.

Now, Hamas is changing its kiddie propaganda focus towards a heartless but very efficient IDF that targets hospitals, UNRWA schools and civilians. (The fighting starts at the two minute mark; I'd love to know the translation of the "Olmert" and "Livni" characters.)
