Mickey Mouse - Satan's soldier

So says Sheikh Muhammad Munajid, a Muslim cleric, former Saudi Arabian diplomat, who according to the Daily Telegraph says under Sharia both household mice and cartoon mice should be killed. The cartoon ones, you see, teach children than mice are lovable. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm, tsk tsk.

He said in an Arab language TV broadcast:

"Even creatures that are repulsive by nature, by logic, and according to Islamic law have become wonderful and are loved by children. Even mice.

"Mickey Mouse has become an awesome character, even though according to Islamic law, Mickey Mouse should be killed in all cases."

Ahhh Islam can be such fun. Though I love the quote about what he said about the Beijing Olympics:

"Last month Mr Munajid condemned the Beijing Olympics as the "bikini Olympics", claiming that nothing made Satan happier than seeing females athletes dressed in skimpy outfits."

Well, given that Mr Munajid is such a fun fellow, you can be sure that anything that most in the world considers fun is immoral to him - but when did he last rally against female circumcision?

Apparently he has forgotten about that lovable character Fafour the Mouse who was once a staple on Palestinian kids TV. Sadly he was beaten to death by a Mossad agent for refusing to sell his land to the evil Jews. In light of this announcement perhaps the episode should be reinterpreted? The agent was clearly promoting multicultural understanding by adhering to sharia law regarding mice...

Strangely I find myself agreeing with the good Sheikh. I’ve always had suspicions myself about Mr M. Mouse. May be it was because he’s always smiling? Or those oversized shoes? (a thinly veiled Freudian link to the size of his genetalia if I ever saw one) Goofy is another character worthy of dissection. They are perverting the minds of young children when they should be at Religious Schools learning about more important stuff at their age – like how to make an incendiary device , safely handling detonation caps, and finding ‘the great Satan’ on World-Maps etc. He’s also ‘on the money’ with his ascertain with the coverage at the Olympics. I mean who the hell wanted to watch Men’s beach volleyball? It’s a disgrace, surely TVNZ could have done replays of the Women’s games instead? May Mohammed curse the TVNZ Charter!
