Iranian Scholar on Tom and Jerry as Jewish Propoganda

On February 19, 2006, Iran's Channel 4 covered a film seminar that included a lecture by Professor Hasan Bolkhari. In addition to being a member of the Film Council of Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), Bolkhari is a cultural advisor to the Iranian Education Ministry, and active on behalf of interfaith issues.

Among the problems with this lecture;

Walt Disney (who wasn't Jewish) didn't make Tom and Jerry. It was produced for MGM by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.

Does this seriously pass for scholarship? This man is regarded as a scholar?

Hasan Bolkhari (b. 1962) holds a Ph.D in Islamic Philosophy and, among other things, teaches philosophy of art at Tabatabaei and Al-Zahra Universities in Iran and is a prolific author of literary and scientific works.

I find it difficult to believe that Iranian citizens watching this on television could possibly be fooled by this utter nonsense.
