Mickey Mouse Meets Sharia Sam: Disney Character Condemned to Death under Sharia Law

Mickey Mouse is a marked rodent. Just this morning, I opined that it would be difficult to top a Saudi Cleric who has called for the execution of horoscope readers on television in the name of Sharia law. I spoke too soon. Sheikh Muhammad Munajid has now called for the death on television of Mickey Mouse and his cartoon kindred rodent Jerry. A former diplomat, Munajid explains that Sharia demands the death of all mice — actual or cartoon. It is not clear whether Disney is expected to have a cartoon stoning or simply change the ending to Fantasia.

Munajid is a former diplomat in Washington and was asked on television to explain the Islamic view of mice. It seems unlikely that he wanted a formal stoning (though Muscles McGurk would be happy to carry it out) but he suggested that celebrity mice hide a more evil purpose. He explained that the mouse is “one of Satan’s soldiers” and makes everything it touches impure. He complained about the depiction of such creatures: “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.” Presumably, Pluto also has a reckoning coming given the view of dogs by some Muslims, here.

Munajid’s attack on Mickey indicates that he has moved on from the Beijing Olympics, which he denounced for showing women in skimpy outfits. Of course, experiments of long jumpers in burkas have proven discouraging.

I have always been suspicious about the meaning of “Meeska Mooska Mickey Mouse!”

Walt Disney once said, “Mickey Mouse is, to me, a symbol of independence. He was a means to an end.” It now appears that the end was . . . Satan.

  1. this whole thing is soooooo oxymoron.Mickey Mouse was created by a free mason, probably symbolizes some of those views.tht is probably were the problem lies.things as simple as listening to music has been warped consider jayz , beyonce,rihaana.those who know wht i’m talking abt…food for thought?

  2. Since the conversation has turned to the applicability of this fatwa as it applies to greater rodentia, where indeed does the line stop?


    No, no, wait. I was going to make a joke there, but contrasting Neocons and rats seems terribly unjust to the rats.

  3. thats a load of … amazed a man of your intelligence would even blog something like that.

    Mice are recognised as rodents the world over and hence we have mouse traps and rat poison. its as simple as that.

  4. Whenever I ponder the exciting new century we live in and the progress that’s in store for us, I’m brought back to reality by a story such as this. Religious fanatics lack a sense of irony and are therefore dangerous to the rest of us. The problem isn’t religion per se, it is that religions are overseen by people and in my own pet theory at least 5% of all humanity(6 Billion people roughly) is stark raving mad. Unfortunately, at least 20% of that 5% are Religious Fundamentalists. I guess that out to be roughly 60,000,000 insane fanatics running around the world. If 1% of those are the religious leaders of the rest, than there are 600,000 insane people trying to enforce their beliefs on the rest of us. Goodbye Mick.

  5. Maybe that’s the answer. Create a cadre of fictional animated characters onto which these religious loons can vent their spleen, and leave all us womens and gays alone.

    Some people’s hot
    Some people’s cold
    Some people’s not very
    Swift to behold
    Some people do it
    Some see right through it
    Some wear pyjamas
    If only they knew it

    The pyjamas people are boring me to pieces
    They make me feel like I am wasting my time
    They all got flannel up ‘n down ’em
    A little trap-door back aroun’ ’em
    An’ some cozy little footies on their mind

    Po-jama people!
    Po-jama people, people!
    Lawd, they make you sleepy
    With the things they might say
    Po-jama people!
    Po-jama people, people!
    Mother, Mary ‘n Jozuf, wish they’d all go away!

  7. You may have something there Raff.

    In fact, maybe these guys don’t realize Mickey isn’t real.

    Maybe they think he’s a real life evil American walking talking… and quite colorfully dressed, mouse.


    Which means right now somewhere in Orlando theres a Islamic cleric walking around with a silenced 9 millimeter and a picture from a comic book whose about to shoot a high school dropout wearing a mouse suit.

  8. This is another amazing story of religion going bonkers. I do have one question. Are rats included in this contract of death? If so, then we could have this Muslim exterminator take care of the rats in out big cities. But leave Mickey alone, please!

  9. I haven’t see this but it did put together crack, possibly obtained from the priest of these people’s choice, and a televised death of Mickey Mouse, so it sounds inherently religious to me…
    “Me, Kobe and Zach acting out the killing of Mickey Mouse on Crack. It was kinda of a lol movie for us but it was my first vid, ever.”

  10. This is why, to quote Zappa, “you can’t run a country by a book of religion, not by a lump or a pinch or a smidgen.”

    Executing a cartoon?

    They call that insanity in most circles.

  11. So in May of 2002, while I was in Pakistan, I expounded on Jung’s theory that frogs were God’s first attempt at making humans. And while I was explaining this to various scholars and clerics, they seemed very amused at my theory that perhaps Munkar and Nakir, the messengers of Allah, were probably frogs.
