Saudis Demand McDonald’s Be Punished For Happy Meal Toy That Insults Muhammed
inquisitr.com ^ | 05/29/2012 | n/a

Posted on 05/29/2012 6:16:21 AM PDT by massmike

The people of Saudi Arabia are furious with the McDonald’s fast food chain for a toy which they say desecrates the name of Muhammed, the prophet of Islam. They are demanding retribution.

According to the Arabic news website, Kermalkom.com,

“[the McDonald's fast food restaurant] abused the Prophet Muhammad by placing his name at the base of a toy that is being distributed as part of the Happy Meal, a toy which steps on the name ‘Muhammad.’”

The toy is a blue super hero on a blue base. The toy looks like a Mighty Morphin Power Ranger samurai warrior. The toy stand on one of its legs and the other leg hangs over the side of the base. When a lever is pressed the toy’s other leg smahes against the base of the toy in a stomping motion.

The Saudis are claiming that the base of the toy, where it stomps its foot, is covered with the name Muhammed. They claim the name is written several times in circles all over the base so every time it stomps it is stomping on Muhammed.

If true, this is awesome! What’s so special about the name of a 6h century sand pirate? How is this any different than an action figure that stomps on the name “Adolph”?

The first fatwa was from from Moochelle to reduce fat.
The second fatwa may be to decapitate Ronald McDonald for blaspheme.

Islam is always at war with Islam

McDonald did not do a nice enough rendition of Islam for another sort of whahabi islam..

There, so, by embracing islamic moderation, we have engaged ourselves further into the islam vanity furball, accepted the beatings and the extremists now can argue with us the merits of our practices... until it all reaches a point where the “perfect mahdi” faggotness is fought for and claimed for.

Islam is not peace, it is the highway to hell and more beatings.

They have free oil, now they want free hamburgers. Islam is 6th century progressed liberalism, suing for the best PC practice, surrendering to more and more extreme forms of abuse as we have gone the slippery slope of “moderation”.

No wonder Zero was bowing to WHahab terrorist leaders of Saudi Arabia. His deeply offended wife wants free hamburgers too, Alal perfect PC. This is exactly what Obama is doing, suing MeekyD for vanities and frivolities of pimping rights. They dont even have to go to the sophistications of communist scientific antireligious snobery PC.

Or it is a random design that these folks perceive as the word Mohammed, much like the people see the Virgin Mary on a taco shell. Look at the Nike shoes with the word air written out in a flame design that supposedly looks like the word Allah. They got all worked up about tat one too.

Boy, I learn something new every day.

I would have thought it impossible to insult a satanic child molester. Who knew 6th century prehistoric sand monkeys could be so easily offended.

And we though it was funny taking pictures of the Amish was verboten.

Leni, don't be so uick to believe it. It is likely that the little squiggly designs on the tody HAPPEN to look A LITTLE like the little squiggly designs that, in their weird language, spells MoHamHead.

But, this is raw paranoia and an insane view on their part. The insane paranoia is nothing new: Witness the Laser Controlled Penis Melting Zionist Robot Comb.

Those squiggles look amazingly similar to the pattern formed by a pile of dog excrement that I spotted by the side of a road this morning.

Who even knew that the dog was writing ‘Muhammad’...

It may look like squiggles to most Americans, but that's a legible "Muhammad" to anyone familiar with Arabic scripts.

The funny thing is that the same people who criticize Christians as being intolerant and thin skinned for having the temerity to object to crucifixes in urine and condoms on crosses will join the muzzies in condemnimg McDonald’s for this ‘outrage’.

I'm not quick to believe ANYTHING these days.

My comment was an observation on the reality OR the perception that the squiggles represent the name of Muhammed.

Either way, it appears that nobody in Mickey D's upper management and advertising/art departments were too swift in checking out the design....unless they were looking for an uproar for publicity purposes....or it was sly sabotage.

Otherwise, I couldn't care less if anyone's feelings are hurt over squiggles on a piece of plastic junk from hamburger heaven.

I take a different tack: I am SOOO done with the perpetually-offended. The homosexuals that get all upset at the slightest provocation; the racial off-limits just about everywhere, and the Religion of the Perpetually Upset (Islam). I say screw 'em. Man up. Learn how to deal with words.

I'm actually starting to go out of my way to offend the delicate little bastards.

If I owned a company, I would headquarter it outside the US to avoid the Feds breathing down my neck, and then I would *purposely* offend certain groups, and rely on the backlash to gain customers in more rebellious, mainstream customer bases.
