Death to Mickey Mouse!

In a story that’s so weird this has to be considered true, a leading Saudi Arabian cleric has declared Mickey Mouse to be an “agent of Satan.” As such, he has put a fatwa, or death sentence , on the Mouse’s head.

According to the London Telegraph Sheik Muhammad Munajid claimed the mouse is "one of Satan's soldiers" and makes everything it touches impure. He warned that depictions of the creature in cartoons such as Tom and Jerry, and Disney's Mickey Mouse, had taught children that it was in fact loveable. The cleric, a former diplomat at the Saudi embassy in Washington DC, said that under Sharia (Islamic law), both household mice and their cartoon counterparts must be killed.

Not that Mickey’s alone in the condemnation department. During the Moslem holy month of Ramadan, Saudi Arabia’s chief cleric, Sheikh Saleh el-Lheidan, has also spat venom at the Olympics and Turkish soap operas. He declared the international sporting event “obscene” and claiming that nothing made Satan happier than seeing females athletes dressed in skimpy outfits. As for the soaps, he has issues with various bedroom scenes.

“I advise the owners of the shameless satellite stations who distribute programs promoting impudence, insolence and silly humor,” said el-Lheidan. “I warn them, they’re wasting people’s time and corrupting them. If they don’t heed our call, their killing could be permissible.”

According to CNN, viewers across the Arab world are absorbing it all in; unaware, or uncaring about the edict controversy.

This is not the first time the Mouse has come into conflict with the Muslim world. A few years back, the Palestinian political group Hamas used an almost exact duplicate of the Mickey, named Farfour, as a sort of host of its own TV show. From this pulpit it used to preach death and destruction to its audience, young Palestinian children.

In 2007, the character was also “murdered” on air. A co-host of the show declared Farfour was killed by an actor posing as an Israeli official trying to buy Farfour's land. At one point, the mouse called the Israeli a "terrorist."

"Farfour was martyred while defending his land," said Sara, a teen co-star. He was killed "by the killers of children," she added.


LOL!!! You can't get more deluded


Islamic law seems to be centered on the idea that people have no willpower of their own and can easily be led astray even by people and things that aren’t even specifically geared towards that purpose. Even if I subscribed to their wacky rules (and most of them are pretty wacky, if not downright dangerous), I would feel insulted that my leaders seem to have such a low opinion of me that they must protect me from billboards advertisements and entertainment venues, as if just because I see a Mickey Mouse cartoon, I’m going to start inviting mice into my house and let them eat off the same plate as I do. How can anyone NOT feel insulted by that attitude?

This is the enlightened civilization they keep talking about? This is what their God thinks of them?

No shit... I never knew Mickey Mouse was a harbinger of Satan...

Now, I am just simply wondering what Mickey Mouse did to the cleric so that he had to put a Fatwa on him I mean, wouldn't that be considered prejudiced, just because Mickey is a mouse, the cleric is wanting to pull a death sentence on him? That's like Hitler, who would have killed anyone just because they were Jews..lol

Anything that might open the eyes of these muslims to the truth are banned by these muslim sheiks, These sheiks portray members of other religions as hostile and merciless people, and some things on television like Mickey Mouse would show otherwise, and take note, These sheiks, who hardly even finished elementary, are regarded as the intellectuals of the muslim community.

wow, just wow .... I never agreed with the Wahabi Islam teachings that prevail in Saudi (and is growing in influence in India), because it's usually exploited by terrorists and nutjob extremists who issue fatwas for little or no reason at all.

Sorry, Flo. That's a stupid generalization. I may be a Muslim but I don't fall into the same category as the 5% of religious whackos who are given undue attention by the media.

Just curious, how can one kill a cartoon mouse in the first place? I'm glad my dad transferred to Dubai from Saudi Arabia before I was born, and my childhood wasn't ruined by extremists and psycho clerics.

Good thing the sensible Muslims stay away from this, If all Muslims took this seriously, WWIII = Possible.

How can mice even be evil lol they are God's creations too. Somebody should kick this guy's head in.
I sincerely hope that people dismiss this guy's fatwa as a joke. The rest of Muslims are pretty tired of taking the piss for the stupidity of a few, and it's only gotten worse post-9/11.
