Saudi government vs Pokemon

Back in 2001, the government of Saudi Arabia slapped a ban for importing Pokemon products. At the time of the ban, Saudi Arabia’s government believed Pokemon was designed to promote the Israeli state even though the series was designed to mirror the insect-collecting experience of a Japanese man named Satoshi Tajiri. Irrespective of your opinion on Israel, you have to agree the aforementioned ban was a stupid decision.
