'Run Hadji Run' fireworks pulled off shelves
Star-Tribune (Minnesota) ^ | July 4, 2009 | JEFF STRICKLER

Posted on 07/04/2009 12:37:52 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

Fireworks called Run Hadji Run were pulled off the shelves of a Wisconsin store after Minnesota Muslims complained that they were racist.

The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) said that both the name and the packaging are demeaning. One side of the package has a drawing of Uncle Sam yanking the long beard of a man in traditional Muslim attire, while the other shows a Stealth bomber flying over a group of Arabs riding camels. In addition, "Hadji" is an honorific for those who have completed the pilgrimage to Mecca.

More appropriate would have been ‘Run Hussein, run..’

Why would anyone bow to CAIR?? They would love to sell fireworks showing terrorists killing infidels.

Can I still buy those on E-bay?

Muslims need to get a sense of humor.

Or perhaps, they could quit bombing and killing and we might not make fun of them.

Why would murdering, suicide-bombing Muslims be offended?

“Muslims need to get a sense of humor. Or perhaps, they could quit bombing and killing and we might not make fun of them.”

If they did that they would no longer be moslems.

Yeah, Hadji is racist and anti-muzzi but we're told by The One that "Hussein" is "American as apple pie"!

The Hadjis should be afraid of us but they aren’t. We run from them here in America because we are so PC. The America I knew as a child is lost. Independence Day is somewhat bittersweet this year. I celebrate “Independence” when I am a slave to the government. I hope to see the day when the People throw off the shackles and gain true freedom once again.

Images that poke fun at terrorists are not racist - these Muslim whiners should have been ignored.

"Run Hadji Run fireworks"

Personally, I think this is a hoot.

See the image below of the fireworks box.

Calling the Minnesota thought police ... time to file charges about a hate crime.

Why, Muslims have a GREAT sense of humor. Ever seen one NOT smiling after having beheaded someone?

I think Hadji was an orphan, and was somehow adopted by Dr. Quest. I have to refresh my memory of Johnny Quest. It’s been years since I’ve seen it. It was a great cartoon.

The idea to NUKE MECCA was the best single idea ever to come out of the W years. I can’t remember who said it first. Whoever thought of it deserves a smartly rendered salute and a free beer.
