Seems legit, if you’ve got your head squarely up your ass. And here all this time we thought it was Bush’s fault. Just a random thought, but maybe their religion has something to do with it.
Ambassador Salah Abdel Sadek said the cartoon as well as video games and ‘violent’ movies helped to spark violence and extremism across the Arab world.
He told an audience at Cairo University that Tom and Jerry contributed to the notion that violence was a ‘natural’ part of life.
According to Egyptian Streets, he said: ‘[The cartoon] portrays the violence in a funny manner and sends the message that, yes, I can hit him…and I can blow him up with explosives. It becomes set in [the viewers’] mind that this is natural.’
Um, no, it doesn’t.
He added that it has become common place for young men to spend hours playing violent video games and that the gamer will be ‘happy and content’.
So who’s the blame for these psychopaths hurling gay men off rooftops?
Wait until they see Itchy & Scratchyhttps://t.co/vQJFL8CQkG
