If you had any possible question as to whether the Iranians are completely insane then go read this.
Prof. Hasan Bolkhari, a cultural advisor to the Iranian Education Ministry is actually pontificating that the "Jewish Walt Disney Company" (well that's one thing he's already got wrong T&J was produced by Hanna-Barbera for MGM Studios) created the cartoon (jeez, they seem to have deveoped a thing about cartoons lately) to improve the image of the Jews during WWII.
I'm now waiting for the explanations for Yogi and BooBoo, Rough and Reddy and the Flintstones.
I wonder if any of our university's have offered a position to Prof. Bolkhari? He seems to have proven himself worthy with his profound research.
