The range has been slammed by religious leaders.

Mohammed Shaffiq, of Muslim organisation The Ramadhan Foundation, branded the toy “absolutely disgusting”.

If my kids needed to get to the roof to drop bricks on that little guy, I would go to the garage to get the ladder.

My boy has been into Legos for about 6yrs.. When he first started playing with them, there weren't many guns that I can remember. Now there are guns out the wazoo.

Mohammed Shaffiq, of Muslim organisation The Ramadhan Foundation, branded the toy “absolutely disgusting”.

On the other had, Mr. Saffiq was not in any way offended by the murders of scores of real, live, human beings in last weeks IslamoFacist massacres.

Why is this guy upset? The little LEGO terrorist doesn’t have “Muslim” written on him.

What is he tacitly admitting?

Like the saying goes - we haven’t played “cowboys and Muslims” yet.

Good point.

----------------------

Now heres some lego "communist glorification" /s (If you saw the latest Indiana Jones movie the bad guys were soviet agents)

Or maybe, once again, when kids play they should be able to know who the bad guys are...

It's hard to keep up with the UK mindset nowadays, so, I wonder...

Do they have guns because they're bad guys, or are they bad guys because they have guns?

Are they making a set of good guys (soldiers or police) to fight the bad guys? If so, do the good guys have guns?

Finally, when will these be outlawed as either too violent or disrepectful of Islam?

Hell, that should be easy to figure out. After all hasn't Hollywood and the MSM been telling us for years that the government, the CIA, FBI, the military and anyone who is patriotic the bad guys.

Luke had his Darth Vader.

He Man has his Skeletor.

Surely there is some Lego hero that needs a villian to complete the playset.
