Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
In a story thatâ€™s so weird his has to be considered true, a leading Saudi Arabian cleric has declared Mickey Mouse to be an â€œagent of Satan.â€ As such, he has put a fatwa, or death sentence , on the Mouseâ€™s head.
This is not the first time the Mouse has come into conflict with the Muslim world. A few years back, the Palestinian political group Hamas used an almost exact duplicate of the Mickey, named Farfour, as a sort of host of its own TV show. From this pulpit it used to preach death and destruction to its audience, young Palestinian children.
In 2007, the character was also â€œmurderedâ€ on air. A co-host of the show declared Farfour was killed by an actor posing as an Israeli official trying to buy Farfour's land. At one point, the mouse called the Israeli a "terrorist."
"Farfour was martyred while defending his land," said Sara, a teen co-star. He was killed "by the killers of children," she added.
