The news from Iran is that the "Zionists" are taking over the world through a sinister plot. Nothing new about that, is there?

At the beginning of the year, Iranian academia did a great service to the world by explaining that Zionism is Mouse-ism and Mouse-ism is Zionism.

The symbol of the Zionist conspiracy




Following are excerpts of the anti-"Zionist" (remember folks, it is not "anti-Semitism," right??) theories of Professor Hasan Bolkhari, aired on Iranian television on February 16,


Hasan Bolkhari: "There is a cartoon that children like. They like it very much, and so do adults - Tom and Jerry."

[...]

"Some say that this creation by Walt Disney [sic] will be remembered forever. The Jewish Walt Disney Company gained international fame with this cartoon...

"Some say that the main reason for making this very appealing cartoon was to erase a certain derogatory term that was prevalent in Europe."

[...]

"If you study European history, you will see who was the main power to hoard money and wealth in the 19th century. In most cases, it is the Jews. Perhaps that was one of the reasons which caused Hitler to begin the anti-Semitic trend...

"Watch Schindler's List. Every Jew was forced to wear a yellow star on his clothing. The Jews were degraded and termed 'dirty mice.' Tom and Jerry was made in order to change the Europeans' perception of mice. One of terms used was 'dirty mice.'

"I'd like to tell you that... It should be noted that mice are very cunning...and dirty."

[...]

"No ethnic group or people operates in such a clandestine manner as the Jews."

Imagine those sneaky Jews, hiding behind the anonymity of Hollywood! Anti-Zionism, rignt? Of course, Tom and Jerry were created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera in the 1940s, while they worked for MGM, another "Zionist" company. Walt Disney was not Jewish and didn't have anything to do with Tom and Jerry. However, for anti-Zionists, as Ilan Pappe noted, facts don't matter. Facts are for pedants.

Bolkhari is a moderate Iranian. He was active in interfaith activities. Actually, compared to Bolkhari, mice are clean. Apparently they are also a lot smarter.


Iranian TV now has a new earth-shattering revelation about the Jewish conspiracy:


"The hot news of cinema circles worldwide is: The Pirates of the Caribbean attack the silver screen. The example of Pirates of the Caribbean - Hollywood's latest effort to gain control - is all the more striking if we bear in mind the name of its producer: the Walt Disney company. Disney and its productions have been associated, more than anything, with the Zionist lobby in Hollywood. In 1995, when the pro-Zionist Jews were 2.5% of America's population, they made up 7.7% of Disney's board of directors. This clearly influences the content of this large company's productions, as well as its policies and guidelines...



What does Pirates of the Caribbean have to do with Zionism?? Oh I figured it out. In Pirates of the Caribbean, the good guys win. Hollywood's contribution to moviemaking was the "Happy End," the triumph of Good over Evil, that came about despite improbably odds. This was especially popular during the depression and World War II, when the Happy End gave hope of overcoming the nightmares of poverty, war and genocide. The Happy Ending must be a Jewish Zionist conspiracy. In fact, Superman was created by "Zionists" Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster as high school students. His first appearance was in a 1933 short story. In 1934 he made his debut as a cartoon hero. Across the ocean, Hitler was popularizing a different sort of Superman, more acceptable to the rulers of Iran.

Mahmoud Ahmedinejad's dream is not just a world without Zionism and America. Ahmedinjad's dream is to abolish the Happy Ending, a sneaky Jewish contrivance. It will be abolished in real life as well as in movies.

Ahmadinejad will do a replay of World War II. This time, the bad guys will win, led by the other sort of Supermen.

MEMRI: Iranian TV: Disney's 'Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest' is a Pawn of the Zionist Lobby to Gain Cultural Control

The following are excerpts from an Iranian TV report on Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean," which asserts that the film is a "Zionist" conspiracy to exert cultural influence by the Disney Company. The report aired on the Iranian news channel (IRINN) on July 27, 2006.

Similar assertions, about the "Tom and Jerry Show," were made by Iranian professor Hasan Bolkhari, [1] during a film seminar; his comments were aired February 16, 2006 by Iranian Channel 4. Bolkhari, who is a member of the Film Council of Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), is also cultural advisor to the Iranian Education Ministry, [2] and active on behalf of interfaith issues. [3]

TO VIEW THIS CLIP, VISIT: http://www.memritv.org/search.asp?ACT=S9&P1=1049 .

The following are excerpts from both reports:

IRINN, July 27, 2006

Anchor: "Zionist ideology uses all means to impose its cultural control. Cinema, as an attractive and popular form of art, has always interested the Zionist circles."

Reporter: "The hot news of cinema circles worldwide is: The Pirates of the Caribbean attack the silver screen. The example of Pirates of the Caribbean - Hollywood's latest effort to gain control - is all the more striking if we bear in mind the name of its producer: the Walt Disney company. Disney and its productions have been associated, more than anything, with the Zionist lobby in Hollywood. In 1995, when the pro-Zionist Jews were 2.5% of America's population, they made up 7.7% of Disney's board of directors. This clearly influences the content of this large company's productions, as well as its policies and guidelines. The Aladdin animated film series is one example of Disney creations that present Arabs in a negative light.

"In 2004, Disney supported the Bush administration's expansionist policies, and refrained from screening the film Fahrenheit 9/11, which harshly criticized Bush's policy in attacking Iraq. This film, which won the Palme d'Or award at the Cannes film festival, became the bestselling documentary in the history of the film industry. Disney's move brought it nothing but disgrace.

"In any event, Zionism is not restricted to the capitalistic weapons companies, such as Lockheed and the banks that support it. Cinema is considered another, subtle, weapon in the hands of those who support this corrupt ideology. In Hollywood, Disney is the manufacturer of this weapon, and Pirates of the Caribbean is its newest ammunition.

"Hamid-Reza Modaghegh, IRINN, Tehran."



Iranian Channel 4, February 16, 2006

Hasan Bolkhari: "There is a cartoon that children like. They like it very much, and so do adults - Tom and Jerry."

[...]

"Some say that this creation by Walt Disney [sic] will be remembered forever. The Jewish Walt Disney Company gained international fame with this cartoon. It is still shown throughout the world. This cartoon maintains its status because of the cute antics of the cat and mouse - especially the mouse.

"Some say that the main reason for making this very appealing cartoon was to erase a certain derogatory term that was prevalent in Europe."

[...]

"If you study European history, you will see who was the main power to hoard money and wealth in the 19th century. In most cases, it is the Jews. Perhaps that was one of the reasons which caused Hitler to begin the anti-Semitic trend, and then the extensive propaganda about the crematoria began... Some of this is true. We do not deny all of it.

"Watch Schindler's List. Every Jew was forced to wear a yellow star on his clothing. The Jews were degraded and termed 'dirty mice.' Tom and Jerry was made in order to change the Europeans' perception of mice. One of terms used was 'dirty mice.'

"I'd like to tell you that... It should be noted that mice are very cunning...and dirty."

[...]

"No ethnic group or people operates in such a clandestine manner as the Jews."

[...]

"Read the history of the Jews in Europe. This ultimately led to Hitler's hatred and resentment. As it turns out, Hitler had behind-the-scene connections with the Protocols [of the Elders of Zion]."

"Tom and Jerry was made in order to display the exact opposite image. If you happen to watch this cartoon tomorrow, bear in mind the points I have just raised, and watch it from this perspective. The mouse is very clever and smart. Everything he does is so cute. He kicks the poor cat's ass. Yet this cruelty does not make you despise the mouse. He looks so nice, and he is so clever... This is exactly why some say it was meant to erase this image of mice from the minds of European children, and to show that the mouse is not dirty and has these traits.

"Unfortunately, we have many such cases in Hollywood shows."





[1] According to the site of the 2005 Iranian Short Film Festival (http://www.shortfilmfest-ir.com/2005/jury/jury_spritual_2005_page-3.htm), Hasan Bolkhari (b. 1962) holds a Ph.D in Islamic Philosophy and, among other things, teaches philosophy of art at Tabatabaei and Al-Zahra Universities in Iran and is a prolific author of literary and scientific works. According to the site, he is also counselor and member of the Film Council of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) and a member of the IRIB's Approval Group - TV Films and Serials.

[2] According to a BBC report (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/low/middle_east/822312.stm ), Bolkhari is a cultural advisor to the Iranian Education Ministry; according to the IRIB's English-language Radio Islam, he is an Iranian mass media expert (http://www.irib.ir/worldservice/englishRADIO/ISLAM/muslims.htm ).

[3] According to the World Catholic Association for Communication, Bolkhari was the Iranian member of the interfaith jury of the recent 24th Fajr International Film Festival and "the Interfaith Jury was set up in 2003 to promote inter-religious dialogue between Christians and Muslims." The jury also included a U.K. and a Belgian juror.

This is a lost cause!!! And a pathetic waste of our energies and time. These nazi muslims are NOT material to discuss with, peace or not peace. They don't know about reasoning, even the so-called moderate muslims. All they know is (besides keeping their own people enslaved) provoking Jews AND all others who aren't muslims, cutting off heads and enjoying their multitrillion oil businesses. Who are they kidding about Jews being the richest in the world??? Poor poor towelheads that cover their upstairs emptiness!!! If it weren't for the oil, their empty heads wouldn't make them survive!!! The more Europeans and others wait to go into their lairs and conquer them...the more Europeans and others will be killed by muslims... in OUR lairs!
