Jihad the Mouse!
Jihad the Mouse!
Wow... It seems that radical Islam really has a problem with determining what is real, and what isn't. I'm not talking about their prophets, either. I'm talking about their aversion of cartoons.
Sheikh Muhammad Munajid claimed that Mickey Mouse is "one of Satan's soldiers" and makes everything it touches impure.
Further quoted from the Telegraph...
According to a translation prepared by the Middle East Media Research Institute, an American press monitoring service, he said: "The mouse is one of Satan's soldiers and is steered by him.
"If a mouse falls into a pot of food – if the food is solid, you should chuck out the mouse and the food touching it, and if it is liquid – you should chuck out the whole thing, because the mouse is impure.
"According to Islamic law, the mouse is a repulsive, corrupting creature. How do you think children view mice today – after Tom and Jerry?
"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."
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.
Yeah... I don't know if anyone told this guy, but you can drop a 1 ton anvil on Wile E. Coyote's head, and he still wouldn't die. I'm pretty sure it goes the same for Mickey.
Anyway. I'm not going to let some sweaty, hairy guy who wears robes in the desert, tell me what exactly is clean, or unclean. I just don't see him as any kind of expert in that area.
