Satan's Soldiers *

Sheikh Muhammad Munajid, a Muslim cleric in the U.K., informs us that "[...] according to Islamic law, Mickey Mouse should be killed in all cases."

This might actually seem like a pretty reasonable proposition to many (at least when their 5-year-olds aren't in the same room). Munajid doesn't stop while he's ahead, though. He claims that "the mouse is one of Satan's soldiers and is steered by him," and that "both household mice and their cartoon counterparts must be killed."

Ponder this for a minute: both household mice and their cartoon counterparts...

Later in the article Sheikh Munajid really muddies the waters, calling the Beijing Olympics the "bikini Olympics," and claiming that "nothing [makes] Satan happier than seeing female athletes dressed in skimpy outfits."

Satan, at least, sounds like he's got his priorities straight...

[* Damn, I love a snappy post title!]


  1. Well, I guess it's as well someone has their priorities sorted out...

    Curious the things people will get themselves wound up about. A mouse? A mouse? What about world bloody peace?

  2. Oh yes, Mickey Mouse should be killed but for entirely different reasons.

  3. Mickey Mouse was harmless.
    Ignatz Mouse I think was involved with anarchists and got deported.

  4. AV,
    World peace, and it's cartoon counterparts, must be killed in all cases!

    You know where I'm coming from. First Mickey, then Kitty...

    Ignatz's problem was those Krazy Kats he hung out with.

  5. I didn't watch the Olympics as I was more interested in the Georgia situation.
    However, I did miss the beach volleyball and for that reason will be forever blue.

  6. Merkin,
    If you don't watch the beach volleyball, then the terrorists have already won...
