We posted about a London Telegraph article recently in which they reported that Muslim cleric Sheikh Muhammad Al-Munajid had declared that Mickey Mouse is “one of Satan’s soldiers” and must die. That cleric has now released a YouTube video in which he says that his words were translated inappropriately and that it would be silly to claim that a cartoon character should die. It’s clear in the original video, even with the misleading translation, that he’s not referring to cartoon mice, but people will hear what they want to hear. Now, if only the cleric would release a video explaining how he achieves those amazing CG backgrounds in his videos.
