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

by on September 22, 2008

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.
