Posted on 08/20/2008 3:26:39 AM PDT by Man50D
Coca-Cola plans to celebrate Ramadan this year by decorating cans with a crescent moon and star a widely recognized Islamic symbol.
Coca-Cola has hired a company named ATTIK to handle packaging, Brand Republic reports. Its Christmas cans are usually decorated with secular-themed images of Santa Claus, but McCartney asked the company whether it planned to introduce Christian symbols as well.
"When I learned the symbol of the Islamic faith will appear on Coca-Cola packaging during Ramadan 2008, I found myself wondering whether or not the Atlanta-based soft drink maker will soon include the Christian cross and Jewish star of David in future holiday packaging designs targeting people of those faiths," he wrote.

I’m addicted to Coke. Damn them!
How about Turban Bomb Mohammed? Sort of the Santa Claus of our time.
I feel the need for some Pepsi.
... or where the mad muzzie commits an "honor" killing because his daughter got a job outside the home at Dunkin' Donuts?
or where the savages are holding up the dismembered head of some innocent "infidel"?
or maybe they could have a can decorated with the images of commercial aircraft plowing into building full of innocent, unsuspecting people. That might be a good one.
coca-cola must be infiltrated with the bastards, or...
hand-wringing, bed-wetting muzzie-loving/fearing liberals.
I like it! Conserva-Cola, Freeper-Up?
Where is the graphic artist when you need one...
Change ‘Coca-Cola’ on the can to ‘Camel Pee’
Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components. Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called religious rights'.
When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to the reasonable Muslim demands for their religious rights, they also get the other components under the table. Heres how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).
As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:
At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:
From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world. When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam - Mohammed cartoons).
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:
At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:
From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:
After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:
100% will usher in the peace of Dar-es-Salaam the Islamic House of Peace theres supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:
Of course, thats not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.
"Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel."
Leon Uris, The Haj.
It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.
All we get is Santa taking it to his transportation on a Pepsi can.
I contacted them and told them I will no longer be purchasing their product.
"Have a Coke and a Smile"
Thanks for the link. I informed them that they will lose a lifelong customer the day they go ahead with this idea.
Drink Pepsi - Pride of the Carolinas
Pepsi just doesn’t cut it. Guess I’ll have to adjust my taste buds and suck it up. :(
Not that I drink soda but a boycott is in order...especially if I see any of these in vending machines here at work. Diversity my a$$
You can contact Coca Cola at the following link.
Thanks. I left them an earful. Such a shame; I do prefer Coke.
As a Christian I will no longer be buying their products if I see this logo of evil on their cans. As my dad always said, you can always vote with your wallet.
Hold on, hold on...how stupid is it of Coca-cola (and how insulting) to be introducing artwork on their product that commemorates a religous festival that is basically a fast period, when devout Muslims are not supposed to be drinking or eating anything anyway?
Wheres the logic in that?
Pepsi rules over cola :)
You can always try RC Cola.
Personally, I prefer Pepsi. Must be because I’m originally from eastern NC.
I switched from pepsi to coke after they started pumping money into gun control groups. argh i may have to quit drinking it all together.
I was told that young stuff could be deadly.
I prefer Red, White ‘n’ Blue Pepsi!
thanks for the link, message sent.
Perhaps, after being burnt to a crisp.
"Sabira Sultana, 30, is seen reflected in a mirror as she makes up at her home in Jhelum, Pakistan Wednesday, July 24, 2008. While being pregnant Sabira was burnt with gasoline by her husband for not giving enough dowry upon their marriage. ..."
"Saira Liaqat, 26, poses for the camera as she holds a portrait of herself before being burnt, at her home in Lahore, Pakistan, Wednesday, July 9, 2008. When she was 15, Saira was married to her relative who would later attack her after insistently demanding her to live with him, although the families had agreed she wouldn't join him until she finished school..."
"Shameem Akhter, 18, poses for a photograph at her home in Jhang, Pakistan, Wednesday, July 10, 2008. Three years ago three boys threw acid on her...."
"Attiya Khalil, 16, poses for a photograph at her home in Lahore, Pakistan, Wednesday, July 9, 2008. Attiya's face was burnt with acid thrown by relatives of a neighbor boy whom she rejected for marriage around 3 years ago...."
Are those Slavic names? Swedish? Plenty more at...
It’s a huge market. Maybe it will work out for the stockholders.
It's just a marketing strategy.
The stuff isn't healthy anyway.
Coke has had Ramadan cans for years. Why is this suddenly news?
Just another reason I drink Pepsi.
LOL, its all about $$$$$$$$$, not religion.
There's an idea. Probably won't sell a lot of soda, however.
I'm addicted to diet coke and still will drink it. I actually am hoping that this will allow them to use Christian type cans along with Ramadan. I have no issue with them using it as long as it is fair across the board. A nice menorah might be pretty nice.
“Quite frankly, I don’t care............they are doing this in select middle eastern countries to sell more of their product.”
So why don’t they do it here? Are we to support companies that appease Muslims. Muslims who will kill us just for not being muslim?
“The stuff isn’t healthy anyway.”
That is true.
Oh another thing, my Grandfather worked for Coca-cola for gosh knows how many years. I bet he would be upset with this but I can't be sure because he died in 1998 way before Muslims came to our country.
Wheres the logic in that? ...”
After sundown, they break the fast and party all night. That's probably what appealed to Coke.
Friends of mine who worked in the middle east said because of the fasting and partying, everyone is massively foul-tempered and there's a lot more family violence. They were always glad when it was over.
Something to commemorate, right? /sarc
Time to start drinking non-coke drinks.
Hey Mooselimbs, screw you and your religion of “peace”.
Can you say Royal Crown Cola?
‘I have no issue with them using it as long as it is fair across the board”
yeah muslims are known for being fair.
keep in mind the people making these “marketing” decisions may very well be muslim. spreading the word about this “peaceful” religion is not Coke’s mission. It is the mission of a muslim though.
Islam is promoted worldwide anyway......so is Christianity. If someone is going follow a religion because of something they saw on a soft drink can, well that's just pretty laughable IMO.
I emailed them that I won’t be buying their products any longer.
It just don't quit at Coke.
How about doing the Pledge of Allegiance at your stockholders meetings, Coke?
"[We're ] an 'international company,' Coca-Cola said, 'If a share owner were to propose that we pledge allegiance, we would certainly consider it in the context of our global business.'
Screw you too.
