The evils of 'Tom & Jerry'

I never cease to be amazed!
Professor Hasan Bolkhari, Iranian “mass media expert” and cultural advisor to the Iranian Education Ministry, explains why the evil Jewish Walt Disney company unleashed the ultimate weapon against the Islamic world—Tom and Jerry cartoons.

For one thing Tom & Jerry isn't a creation of Disney... facts wrong!
And, my question is, 'How does he know that was Disney's intent, or anyone else's intent for that matter?'

Also, what kind of proof does he have that what he claims is in fact the reason for the existence of the Tom & Jerry cartoons? He states it as fact. Where's his proof?

Check out Info from Wikipedia about Tom & Jerry.
Tom and Jerry were an animated cat (Tom) and mouse (Jerry) team who formed the basis of a massively successful series of theatrical short cartoons created, written, and directed by animators William Hanna and Joseph Barbera (later of Hanna-Barbera fame), and produced by Metro-Goldwyn Mayer from 1940 to 1958. MGM later had more Tom & Jerry cartoons produced by outside studios in the 1960s (Gene Deitch's Rembrandt Films from 1961 to 1962, and Chuck Jones' Sib Tower 12 Productions from 1963 to 1967). Tom and Jerry later resurfaced in TV cartoons produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions (1975-1977; 1990-1993) and Filmation Studios (1980 - 1982). The original Hanna and Barbera shorts are notable for having won seven Academy Awards, tying it with Walt Disney's Silly Symphonies as the most-awarded theatrical cartoon series.

How about Mickey Mouse? That would be problematic since he was created in 1928!
