Saudi Cleric Declares Mickey Mouse and Jerry Should be Killed as "Satan's Soldiers"

The Telegraph is reporting that Saudi Arabian cleric Sheikh Muhammad Munajid declared on the al-Majd TV network that, as mice, Disney’s Mickey Mouse and Jerry of Tom & Jerry are “Satan’s soldiers,” and that both should be killed along with household mice and their other cartoon counterparts. His comments came in a week when another Saudi cleric, Sheik Saleh al-Lihedan, issued a fatwa declaring that it was acceptable to kill the owners of satellite TV channels that show immoral or indecent programming, although Sheik al-Lihedan clarified his comments later, apparently to prevent vigilante killings.
