E-mail from a Cane Toad friend


Hi, Cane Toad here. I just got an e-mail from one of my friends. It is Ahmed Al-Shalamari from the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Wiley Park. He just had some comments about those cartoons. Well, I will just put the e-mail here for you to read…

Subject: Re: Offensive Cartoons

Dear Cane,

As an Iman of a religion of peace, I am glad to see that my Muslim brothers are torching the Danish and Norwegian embassies and destroying their property. However, there are many other cartoons that are just as offensive, for instance…

1. An unclean animal like a dog is unfit to share your home but is shown living with a man in the Wallace and Gromit cartoon, which is an offense to Muslims everywhere. The fact that Wallace is shown eating cheese that is likely made in New Zealand where the Mohammed cartoons were published, is a further, intentional affront to Muslims everywhere.

According to the hadeeth of Ibn ‘Umar the Messenger of Allah said: “Be different from the mushrikeen: let your beards grow.” However, in “A Close Shave,” it shows Wallace shaving his beard, which is yet another intentional insult to Muslims. Nick Park has intentionally made these plasticine figures to offended Muslims and must pay. If Nick Park does not apologize to Muslims everywhere and immediately burn all Wallace and Gromit animations, I issue a fatwa to boycott all English products and burn their embassies.

2. The cartoon Cathy shows a woman wearing western style clothing and freely questioning her man. If Cathy does not immediately put on a burqa and submit to the authority of her on again, off again boyfriend Irving, I declare a fatwa on the Zionist cartoonist Cathy Guisewite that she should pay for intentionally offending Muslims everywhere. Also, this fatwa extends to Universal Press Syndicate for publishing the Cathy cartoon and, while I am at it, extend the fatwa to Kansas City, Missouri (note: Kansas City, Kansas is exempt from this fatwa as things cannot get much worse there).

3. I think Warner Brothers should feel the wrath of the Muslim Borthers for their portrayal of a pig in their cartoons. Obviously, in 1935, Friz Freleng and the other Zionists intentionally drew Porky Pig to offend Muslims. The fact that he used an unclean dog to control the cats that were hunting mice in the episode “Trap Happy Porky” is doubly insulting to Muslims everywhere. We insist that all Porky Pig cartoons be immediately withdrawn from worldwide distribution and that Warner Brothers Studios apologize to all Muslims or a fatwa will be issued to burn down their stores in Westfield Shopping Centres worldwide (If the fire spreads to adjacent Disney stores, that is okay as we Muslims are not too happy with the unclean dog Pluto either).

Allah Akbar!

Iman Al-Shalamari
