NEWS: Mickey Mouse is one of Satan’s soldiers!

Expounding on the position of Shari’a law regarding mice, Saudi cleric Muhammad Al-Munajid referred to them as ‘little corrupters’. ‘The mouse’, the Saudi sheikh asserted, ‘is one of Satan’s soldiers and is steered by him’. Al-Munajid suggested that the western media is to blame for the unfortunate popularity of Mickey Mouse and Tom & Jerry among Muslim children. Shari’a law, the former diplomat at the Saudi embassy in Washington D.C. emphasized, holds that Mickey Mouse must be killed because the mouse is i-m-p-u-r-e! While Walt Disney has fallen victim to Al-Munajid’s fatwa, Pixar is lucky that the cleric has not seen Ratatouille. At least, not yet! Read the full story in the Daily Telegraph
