Satan’s foot soldier (according to some).

Following is an excerpt from a religious program featuring Saudi Cleric Muhammad Al-Munajid, which aired on TV on August 27, 2008:

Muhammad Al-Munajid: What is the position of Islamic law with regard to mice? The Shari’a refers to the mouse as “little corrupter,” and says it is permissible to kill it in all cases. It says that mice set fire to the house, and are steered by Satan. The mouse is one of Satan’s soldiers and is steered by him. If a mouse falls into a pot of food – if the food is solid, you should chuck out the mouse and the food touching it, and if it is liquid – you should chuck out the whole thing. Because the mouse is i-m-p-u-r-e!
According to Islamic law, the mouse is a repulsive, corrupting creature. How do you think children view mice today – after Tom and Jerry? 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.

Could Peter Pan be next ??????

  2. this “polemic” makes me smiling …
    when we see the subliminic messages embedded in cartoons since the WWII …

    anyway, it s just a matter of opinion, religious figures have to right to express their opinion but not to impose it.

    The real problem should be on this level.

  3. Such an idiot should not be even allowed to air his views causing many of those feeble minded sheep to follow blindly. A fatwa should be declared against such an evil moron.
    Blasphemy in cartoons I could hardly understand nor accept, let alone Mickey Mouse. This reminds me of the outrage when the first man landed on the moon.
    What a load of crap, this is not Islam; this is lunacy!

  4. No Marillionlb, this is just another way to get some power. Another way to exist, to pretend to be reading the book.

  8. @ Mohamad,
    I guess every religion when taken to the extreme by fanatic idiots does more harm than good. We should never follow blindly men of the cloth for God has given us a brain and a will, which differentiate us from the animals.
    You are welcome on my page and look forward to more exchanges.
