Tom and Jerry and the Shari'a

From HERE. This is from a representative of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the staunch ally of the West in persecuting Christians (and Shi'a Muslims too).

...“The mouse is one of Satan's soldiers and is steered by him,” he explained, adding that should a mouse come in contact with food, the food must be disposed of as the mouse is an impure creature.

“According to Islamic law, the mouse is a repulsive, corrupting creature,” al-Munajid said, adding that he was concerned that popular culture had given mice an undeserved positive image.

“How do you think children view mice today – after Tom and Jerry?” he asked.

“Even creatures that are repulsive by nature, by logic, and according to Islamic law have become wonderful and are loved by children. Even mice. Mickey Mouse has become an awesome character, even though according to Islamic law, Mickey Mouse should be killed in all cases.”

Some of the funniest episodes of Tom and Jerry I have seen were Arabic voice-overs!

But you know, all cultures and religions are pretty much the same.

So, Tom is a Muslim?

It appears that Tom is indeed trying to enforce the shari'a by exterminating this unclean animal--Jerry. However, his motive is to eat him, which is a grievous violation of shari'a. So we shouldn't be too easy on him.
