According to the Saudis, the designs that appear all around the base, where the figure stomps its foot, is really the name “Muhammed” written several times in circles.
Saudi Arabians are angry at a McDonald’s toy which they say mocks their prophet Muhammad. According to a report appearing today (5/27/12) on 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 consists of a blue superhero figurine (apparently a Power Ranger Samurai; click here for pictures). It stands on one leg, and, when the lever is pressed, it pounds on the base with the other leg. According to the Saudis, the designs that appear all around the base, where the figurine stomps its foot, is really the name “Muhammad” written several times in circles.
The toy had been distributed a few days before Saudi children and their parents began to take note of the name. Soon thereafter, Saudi Muslims launched several campaigns against McDonald’s in “response to the savage attacks on the noble Prophet,” under banners like “Help your Prophet!” and “Together in support of the Prophet.”
Saudis, “demanding the strongest possible punishment for the restaurant” and insisting that “they will not be silent until this is realized,” further complained how such an obvious insult could pass the supervision of the management at McDonalds.
In response, “Saudi McDonald’s” has withdrawn the toy from all its restaurants, “in order to safeguard against any accusations or misunderstandings.”
Geeze! I sometimes think the world has gone completely mad!
2. Can we buy these things in the millions and carpet bomb the Middle East with them?
Poor McDonald’s. The toys are my kids’ favorite part of going, and soon, there will be none. We only go about once a month, so it is a treat for them. I’m so tired of the PC crap!
These are the same people who riot over cartoons, they have been mad for a while now.
But they seem to be cool with the giant marihuana leaf planted on the figure’s face...
(I would have thought those scribbles would be lightning or sparks or something like that - but then I’m no Saudi.)
Guess the muzzieâs stepped in it this time. Why does line squiggles make them think it is mohammad is beyond any relational thought. They truely are mad.
“These are the same people who riot over cartoons, they have been mad for a while now.”
Since about 700 AD.
I think your thread is gonna get locked.
Problem? Dup, about 16 minutes ago.
That actually does look like the name Muhammad in common Arabic scrawl.
Stomps on the name of Mo?.........I GOTTA GET ME ONE OF THESE!!!!!!!!!............checking eBay..............
It’s not the world, it’s the Middle East and we seem to cater to them. All American companies should pull out of that area of the world and see if they survive in the worlds economy. I would doubt it very much. If they want to live in the 7th Century, let them.
That child-raping madman Mohammed was not a prophet.
I demand punishment for Saudis
Too much drama, Conrad. If you’re not Sam Elliott drinking sarsaparilla soda in a cult classic, calling someone out as “dude” is probably too much.
Oil soaked bloody savages!!
A McMuzzie, how quaint.
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’.
That pretty much explains it...
they just realized they have been worshiping a squiggle for 1312 years.
Give ‘em all a free McRib to make up for it.
Well Boo, hoo, hoo!
Hey, you Mooselimb, Saudi, Sand Monkeys and Smelly Camel Jocks, here's something guaranteed to "offend" and get enraged over:
This is what I think of your psychotic, murdering, pederast, "profit", Moo-Ham-Ud:
And this is what I think of your so called "holy book" which governs you cult-cum-Religion of Pieces:
Now, I dare you to come and "take me to task" for insulting your eeeevil, barbaric, misogynistic, faux, religion.
McDonald’s is just trying to maximize prophets.
“Hope they don’t find out about the crescent moon design on our outhouses. “
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I don’t want these prehistoric 6th century monkey boys getting in a snit when I have to go take a Mohammud.
That does NOT spell out Muhammad in Arabic; CLEARLY, that is Krunassian script for “Eat at Burger King”.
Somebody’s idea of an “inside” joke.
“Terrible! Muslims outraged! Heads must roll! Obama must apologize! How could they??”
FUSaudi’s...and all the rest of you Muzzies...it really is getting time to turn Mecca into a sea of glass. Muhammed the pedofile. What a POS!
” I dont want these prehistoric 6th century monkey boys getting in a snit when I have to go take a Mohammud.”
LOL! It is just that the Saudi’s can’t spell $hit...
Have another ham ... burger. Slipping in the ham (on 'em) for years, and LOL.
With their simple alphabet looking like hen scratches, any nonsense marks could insult islam.
Gee, what’s the fuss?
I heard some shoe manufacturers write the name Mohammad on the inside linings of their shoes!!
I even heard some toilette companies write the name “Mohammad” on the bottom lips of their public toilette seats!!!
I guess Muslims should check all the public toilettes before using public toilettes. Also, they should start checking all their shoes.
This is hilarious. The Power Rangers was produced by a couple of Jewish guys at Saban Entertainment (later bought out by Disney).
Since the Power Rangers could be viewed by the Muzzies as being Jewish then having them step on the name of old Mo (Piss Be Upon Him) could be seen as even worse insult! LOL!
I’d rather have the Mohamhead logo emblazoned on every sheet of a roll of toilet paper. I’d buy a pallet full.
If the figure does indeed have semblance to Mohammed I can understand Muslim anger at it being in a Muslim nation. However as for me the situation shows a relationship that has been bought and paid for by Saudi oil. It is a situation the Founding Fathers would have deplored. That the USA being bound to a Muslim nation for the sake of a ‘new world order’ in this situation is a direct example of unknown consequences. If it just stayed in Saudi Arabia it would not be much of a bother to me at this time though I still remember the Muslims favored and supported Hitler and his Nazis. The USA cannot afford to allow such influence as Muslims seek if the Nation is to survive as intended by the Founders.
When your written language looks like a track made by an inked worm on LSD you can see anything you want in any other squiggle.
So does a road map of a 100 square mile section (10 x 10) just south of Augusta Georgia.miles.
You have to read his name by you turning the map so North is South.
I'm going to predict there is going to be a repeat of 2006 the last time muslims were outraged at McDonald's for whatever reason.
The La Raza types and illegals are going to start marching in the streets demanding amnesty.
Anybody get the connection between La Raza/illegals and muslims pissed at McDonald's?
