Film Seminar on Iran TV: Tom and Jerry a Jewish Conspiracy to Improve the Image of Mice

In February 19, 2006, during a film seminar, Iranian university professor Hasan Bolkhari said that "Tom and Jerry" was a Jewish conspiracy to change the Europeans' perception of mice, since one of the term used to describe Jews was "dirty mice." Bolkhari was a member of the Film Council of Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting and cultural advisor to the Iranian education ministry. The film seminar was covered by Iranian TV Channel 4.
