Unless of course Christian kid want to pray at school and then of course none of this nonsense will be allowed.

Default Well they sentenced Mickey Mouse to Death

Reuters AP:

On Tuesday, another Saudi cleric, Sheik Mohammed Munajjid, said the cartoon character Mickey Mouse should be killed. Munajjid said in an interview with a religious Web site that under Islamic law, rats and mice are considered "repulsive" and as "soldiers of Satan."

"For children they've become something great and beloved. Like this Mickey Mouse, who is seen as a great figure, even though under Islamic law, Mickey Mouse should be killed," said Munajjid, who is a well-known cleric but does not hold a government position.

The controversy over al-Lihedan's fatwa began a week ago, when the cleric was answering questions from callers to the daily "Light in the Path" religious program on Saudi state radio. One caller asked about Islam's view of the owners of satellite TV channels that show "bad programs" during the holy month of Ramadan, which began more than two weeks ago.

"I want to advise the owners of these channels, who broadcast calls for such indecency and impudence ... and I warn them of the consequences," al-Lihedan said in the program. "Those calling for corrupt beliefs, certainly it's permissible to kill them."

The remarks were especially surprising because many of the most popular Arab satellite networks are owned by Saudi princes and well-connected Saudi and Gulf businessmen.

On Sunday, reportedly under pressure from senior government figures, al-Lihedan appeared on Saudi state TV to explain his comments, apparently to prevent vigilante killings. He said owners should first be brought to trial and then sentenced to death if other penalties don't deter them.

Of course the point is: you can find idiots everywhere, but they don't represent the majority.

I've often wondered if McCain was as close with Timothy McVeigh as Obama is with Bill Ayers if the media would bother to mention it.

Don't give me that xenophobic nonsense I'm an immigrant myself, my family moved here when I was ten years old. The only people who changed to accommodate immigrants were the Native Americans and we know how that worked out.

I also know that the majority of Muslims are not terrorists, however they turn a blind eye to the extremists in their midst. As long as they're killing and maiming infidels you won't hear a peep out of them. They're no different than all the good Germans who turned anti-nazi on May 9th 1945. If they can't or won't stand up to the criminals and murderers in their faith then they're no better than them and deserve the same contempt.

Of course I do and it applies here in that you chose the emphasize "you" in your reply about "all immigrants don't have to become like me"....


Your response implies that I am some knee-jerk right winger afraid or disdainful of "furiners". That is emphatically not the case however I don't live in some Disney fantasy world either.
