Muslim group in Egypt: "Eating tomatoes is forbidden because they are Christian" [see the Cross]
Jihad Watch ^ | 6-17-12

See the cross? See it? Why are you laughing?

Warning! Your salad could be making you into an Infidel! "Salafist group warns tomatoes are 'Christian,'” by Angie Nassar for NowLebanon.com, June 12 (thanks to Lachlan)

...A Salafist group called the Popular Egyptian Islamic Association has come under fire after sending out a warning on Facebook urging its followers not to eat tomatoes because the vegetable (or fruit) is a Christian food. The group posted a photo on its page of a tomato - which appears to reveal the shape of a cross after being cut in half – along with the message: “Eating tomatoes is forbidden because they are Christian. [The tomato] praises the cross instead of Allah and says that Allah is three (a reference to the Trinity).

[God help us]. I implore you to spread this photo because there is a sister from Palestine who saw the prophet of Allah [Mohammad] in a vision and he was crying, warning his nation against eating them [tomatoes]. If you don’t spread this [message], know that it is the devil who stopped you.”

Yeah... no.

Predictably, Facebook users expressed outrage over the post, which prompted the group to clarify its stance on the controversy with the update, “We didn’t say you can’t eat tomatoes. We said don’t cut it in [such a way that reveals] the cross shape.”...

The poor tomato that did nothing to anyone. First it was Christians who shuned it and now it’s muslims.

Christophobia is a terrible thing, but anything that makes Muslims uncomfortable in their ignorance is a good thing. Thank God for the goodness of tomatoes, the love apple.

Did these idiots ever think that maybe it’s just a “t” which stands for “tomato” possibly?

Or maybe they are holding it wrong and it is an “x”

I know there are few to no tomato hothouses in Gaza, but surely across the Arab world, there are Arab tomato farmers, hothouses and tomato field owners, wondering WTF...

Oh well, maybe they can get into wheat... fields of wheat, acres of wheat, cream of wheat...

GMTA! I made a similar point to my wife when I first saw this thread...ALL food is a creation of G-d, so Muslims should just quit eating. Do the 'Jim Jones' thing, musloids...before you defile your body with Christian food any further...

“It looks like a Maltese cross anyway.”

Ooooooh, that makes it even more of an insidious Infidel plot! This imam may be on to something!

“...the Maltese Cross. The cross is eight-pointed and has the form of four “V”-shaped elements joined together at their tips, so that each arm has two points. Its design is based on crosses used since the First Crusade.”

“See the cross? See it?”

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20Corinthians%201:18-21&version=KJV

1 Corinthians 1:18-20

King James Version (KJV)

18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

"It's... this type of thinking that keeps these morons in the third century."

That's a real "chicken or the egg" quandary, isn't it? Are they "stuck in the 3rd Century" because they think "that way," or do they think "that way" because they're "stuck in the 3rd Century?"

Not to put too fine a point on it, I think the "3rd Century" analogy is giving them way too much credit, being far too generous.

They are actually stuck somewhere between "homo erectus" and "Neanderthal," possibly "Cro Magnon." Actual Stone Age cave-men, and I'm not trying to be glib or cute. These dismal abysmals have no place in modern society, and the world as it exists today cannot afford to continue to pat them on the head and coddle them for too much longer.

Doing so will absolutely result in a massive, brutal global conflagration, and we'll have only our spineless "political correctness" to blame.

God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life...

God is love...

OK, they're right - no Muslims can eat tomatoes, salsa, pizza, spaghetti etc. God in his wisdom has sent a sign - in a tomato... and in McDonald's french fries... shaped like the Madonna... no potatoes either....

Imagine what will happen when someone tells the Salafists about cruciferous vegetables -- broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, Chinese cabbage, collards, kale, mustard, radish, rutabaga, turnip.

Check the definition of "crucifer" online -- "1, one who carries a cross especially at the head of an ecclesiastical procession. 2, any of a family (Cruciferae syn. Brassicaceae) of plants including the cabbage..." Worse than tomatoes!
