Tom & Jerry cartoon was pro-Jewish?

I swear, I couldn't make this tripe up if I tried. You thought only American colleges had nutjob professors? Think again. From WND:
Tom and Jerry, the lovable cat and mouse locked in cartoon combat, is a Jewish conspiracy, according to an Iranian official.

Prof. Hasan Bolkhari, a cultural advisor to the Iranian Education Ministry, delivered the news last week on Iran's Channel 4 during a broadcast of film seminar where he was lecturing. An excerpt of the video was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

"The Jewish Walt Disney Company gained international fame with this cartoon," said Bolkhari. "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.
"Watch 'Schindler's List.' Every Jew was forced to wear 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.'

"It should be noted that mice are very cunning ... and dirty."
American campuses may be overstocked with barking moonbat professors, but it's nice to know that we're not the only country that perverts young moldable minds with pseudo-intellctual claptrap.

And some people think it's a grand idea for these nutbars to get their hands on nukes?
