Islamic Group Forbids Tomatoes 'Because They Are Christian?'
Christian post ^ | June 20, 2012|8:00 am | Alex Murashko

Posted on 07/04/2012 9:55:11 AM PDT by InvisibleChurch

A Salafist group from Egypt appears to be trying to retract a post on Facebook that warned that eating tomatoes are "forbidden because they are Christian."

However, the Muslim traditionalist group, calling themselves the Popular Egyptian Islamic Association, apparently still finds tomatoes offensive if they are cut in such a way that reveals the shape of a cross, according to the Now Lebanon website.

Along with a photo of a tomato cut in half to reveal what could be viewed as a cross, the group originally posted on Facebook: "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," according to a translation by Now Lebanon...

"Eating tomatoes is forbidden because they are Christian

I thought I read that Jesus was revered as a prophet but not a God among muslims?

All food is Christian so I think those Muslims should just quit eating althogether to be on the safe side. It’s the only way to be sure.........

I would like to know how many Moslems work for HJ Heinz. I would think they will all be quitting their jobs as soon as possible since that company does a bit of work with tomatoes. In fact any company that deals with tomatoes should be seeing all them Moslems quitting as soon as possible.

I love tomatoes,
Unfortunately, I am allergic to them.
I can’t think of a food that would be worse to be allergic to.
(no pizza, no spaghetti, and the worst, no ketchup).

We see Jesus in burnt toast, trees, peanut butter sandwiches,...so I guess they can find the cross of Jesus in a tomato.

Thought maybe it was because they looked like balls which the Islamist Association is laughably lacking in.

Why else drape their women in burlap and strap bombs to their little boys?

Fascinating superstition.

It would be an interesting study to find out if this mandate leads to higher rates of prostate cancer in their population.

If Americans ever get to the Moon again we should have a collection started to pay one of them to take the moon buggy and use it to etch out a cross that can be seen from Earth by telescope.

What a nice fork in the eye of the false moon god.

Aren’t certain fruits also forbidden by these cretans because they are too “sexual”? Women cannot touch bananas and melons are also offensive, as I recall.

This is the most bizarre cult in the history of humanity, and that’s saying a lot.

Ah, a new slander against those poison ‘love apples’ that are so important in spaghetti sauce, ketchup, and garnishing sandwiches.

I must be more ignorant than a Muslim as I’ve lived my entire life and never once noticed the cross in a halved tomato.

If that gets them in a tizzy, will they be afraid of spontaneously combusting when coming in contact wtih a drop of holy water?

Maybe Salafists are vampires if that is how they react when seeing anything remotely resembling a Cross.

Psssttt...while y’all are at it, ‘air’ is Christian too.

“After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.”

The entire muslim cult revolves around sex and is based on what the rantings of a semi-retarded, hormonal, 14 year old boy would have.

The entire religion and all of its' adherents are degenerate ignoramuses with no redeeming value to the rest of the population of Earth.

Maybe it's not a superstition:

Romans 1:18

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

I understand they have plans against the makers against Lucky Charms, not because of the crescent moons but because they are “magically delicious”, and apostasy against the teachings of M___________.
