Mickey Mouse Must Die!

"One of Satan's soldiers." That's what a Saudi muslim cleric called Mickey Mouse, saying that the cartoon character must die:

Sheikh Muhammad Munajid claimed the mouse is "one of Satan's soldiers" and makes everything it touches impure.

But 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, both household mice and their cartoon counterparts must be killed.

Mr Munajid was asked to give Islam's teaching on mice during a religious affairs programme broadcast on al-Majd TV, an Arab television network.

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.

I am not an anti-American, I love America, But, if you value your children, you should appose this junk being broadcasted on your television. How in the hell is beating a cat good for your children to watch on television? Please, tell me I am wrong, Because, I cannot see how you could be right in supporting this junk.
BRING IT!!!! I want to hear your argument for this stuff being broadcasted on your television. How does it help your kids? Give me one example how.

I agree with the Saudi's. Whenever I watch this cartoon, I cannot believe that this crap is still on television. We are hipocrits for supporting such crap on our televisions. I can't understand why people protest programs such as south park and the Simpsons when cartoons such as tom and jerry are setting such horrible examples for our children. I really think that people are choosing to disagree with the Saudi's because they are Saudi's. Tom and Jerry sets horrible examples for our children. My son now thinks that it is ok to hit is little sister because it does not kill the stupid cat on the cartoon. How does this make sense? Cartoon violence has been a contraversial issue for quite sometime. Yet, we disregard these cartoons because they are "American Culture". I feel that these cartoons should have been discontinued a long time ago. Please, someone tell me that thier kids do not take this crap to heart. My kids think it is ok to harm others when they watch this junk on tv. I have to go back and reteach them that hitting and harming others is not ok. BTW, This stuff is on your cable television everyday. So, what is up with that?
Someone needs to use their god given ability to determine logic in this case. How is this ok? Why do they still show these programs during the morning when my three-year old is watching tv. I understand that I have the power to turn the channel to another station, but, Why is this crap on tv to begin with?
Everyone, give me one reason to let my kids watch this stuff? Why are the Saudi's wrong? I think it makes a great deal of sense. Mickey mouse, tom and jerry should have been killed off a long time ago, especially in these modern times.
