Tom & Gerry

by | 19th, March 2007

The War On Terror has a new face.

It’s got whiskers for a beard. It’s got a mouse’s head on a cat’s body. It’s Tom & Jerry. And it’s Prof. Hasan Bolkhari, a cultural advisor to the Iranian Education Ministry.

As Poldraw notes, Daniel Finkelstein on Comment Central has found this gobsmackingly amusing yet ultimately terrifying film on YouTube (Or is that “terrifying yet ultimately gobsmackingly amusing?”)

When not sure whether to laugh or cry, maybe we should just do the former – and hope for the best.

What’s for certain though, is that it’s hard not to share Finkelstein’s concern.

And we note that Walt Disney has now been accused of being Jewish and an anti-semite. As some Islamic scholars are accused of embracing Nazi ideology.  You can see that refuted here.

Enjoy the film – the subtitles are genuine. As is Iran’s desire for a nuclear bomb…
