See the cross? See it? Why are you laughing?
Warning! Your salad could be making you into an Infidel! "Salafist group warns tomatoes are 'Christian,' by Angie Nassar for NowLebanon.com, June 12 (thanks to Lachlan)
...A Salafist group called the Popular Egyptian Islamic Association has come under fire after sending out a warning on Facebook urging its followers not to eat tomatoes because the vegetable (or fruit) is a Christian food. The group posted a photo on its page of a tomato - which appears to reveal the shape of a cross after being cut in half along with the message: Eating tomatoes is forbidden because they are Christian. [The tomato] praises the cross instead of Allah and says that Allah is three (a reference to the Trinity).
[God help us]. I implore you to spread this photo because there is a sister from Palestine who saw the prophet of Allah [Mohammad] in a vision and he was crying, warning his nation against eating them [tomatoes]. If you dont spread this [message], know that it is the devil who stopped you.
Predictably, Facebook users expressed outrage over the post, which prompted the group to clarify its stance on the controversy with the update, We didnt say you cant eat tomatoes. We said dont cut it in [such a way that reveals] the cross shape....
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Those infidels are sneaky.
Red...looks like the ragheads may be declaring a ‘fatwa’ on our gardens pretty soon...you might want to ‘ping’ the garden list so they can get prepared to defend their tomatoes... :-)
Neanderthal fools who are working on their first atomic bomb.
Worse than monkeys with hand grenades.
The poor tomato that did nothing to anyone. First it was Christians who shuned it and now it’s muslims.
Christophobia is a terrible thing, but anything that makes Muslims uncomfortable in their ignorance is a good thing. Thank God for the goodness of tomatoes, the love apple.
It’s exactly this type of thinking that keeps these morons in the third century.
Did these idiots ever think that maybe it’s just a “t” which stands for “tomato” possibly?
Or maybe they are holding it wrong and it is an “x”
They should stop eating all food.....just to be sure.
It looks like a Maltese cross anyway.
I guess they’ve never been exposed to
Attack of the Killer Tomatos!
or else they’d know there is more
to fear than the cross.
All foods are also Christian foods, so I hope they starve. haha. Morons.
Maybe we can convince them that oxygen is Christan as well?
This is a male oriented cult plain and simple, has nothing to do with religion. Its about control
Oh well, maybe they can get into wheat... fields of wheat, acres of wheat, cream of wheat...
GMTA! I made a similar point to my wife when I first saw this thread...ALL food is a creation of G-d, so Muslims should just quit eating. Do the 'Jim Jones' thing, musloids...before you defile your body with Christian food any further...
Well, maybe they should eat polonium instead....
Even worse! It’s the food of Teotl worshippers.
Are you referring to the belief that the lowly tomato was thought to be Eve’s, then Adam’s, apple from the the Garden of Eden?
What’s next, lettuce? Send them a BLT (Bacon Lettuce Tomato) sandwich.
Nine out of ten vampires would agree.
Just wait until one of them finds the image of the Virgin Mary in a lamb haunch.
“It looks like a Maltese cross anyway.”
Ooooooh, that makes it even more of an insidious Infidel plot! This imam may be on to something!
“...the Maltese Cross. The cross is eight-pointed and has the form of four “V”-shaped elements joined together at their tips, so that each arm has two points. Its design is based on crosses used since the First Crusade.”
post other foods with a cross, here’s a t-bone steak
LOL, NEIN! Its an Iron Cross. What we have here is a Religion going beyond the fringe of lunacy. IGNORANCE supreme.
“See the cross? See it?”
1 Corinthians 1:18-20
King James Version (KJV)
18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
Thanks SJackson. What a bunch of morons they are.
Water is Christian too, and should be avoided at all cost!
Yes , this could get real good ,just think of the things we could Christianize( is that a word )
Actually, tomatos are pagan - even worse!
They came from the Aztecs, did they not?
Think I’ll make a BLT...with cross tomatoes, bacon, and toast with the image of Jesus on it.
Call it an “infidel sandwich”.
Wonder what they do when they come to a crossroad.
That's a real "chicken or the egg" quandary, isn't it? Are they "stuck in the 3rd Century" because they think "that way," or do they think "that way" because they're "stuck in the 3rd Century?"
Not to put too fine a point on it, I think the "3rd Century" analogy is giving them way too much credit, being far too generous.
They are actually stuck somewhere between "homo erectus" and "Neanderthal," possibly "Cro Magnon." Actual Stone Age cave-men, and I'm not trying to be glib or cute. These dismal abysmals have no place in modern society, and the world as it exists today cannot afford to continue to pat them on the head and coddle them for too much longer.
Doing so will absolutely result in a massive, brutal global conflagration, and we'll have only our spineless "political correctness" to blame.
Well, if you can’t eat bacon and you can’t eat tomatoes, what can you eat? Is lettuce halal?
I got to develop a "Pig roll" pastry (like a jellyroll) which you must slice properly, otherwise it reveals an image of mohamed...
God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life...
God is love...
OK, they're right - no Muslims can eat tomatoes, salsa, pizza, spaghetti etc. God in his wisdom has sent a sign - in a tomato... and in McDonald's french fries... shaped like the Madonna... no potatoes either....
Wow. Even tomatoes rebuke the Islam tenets and embrace Truth.
I guess some folk will pay closer attention to their salads from now on..
These people are absolutely insane, and I see no hope of them ever being otherwise.
Guess this means muslims must beware of persimmons and cranberries too...
Sounds good to me. I think I should have called them Christaphopes, not Christophobes. There is a lot of Christaphobia going around these days. People are truly fearful of God’s love.
Check the definition of "crucifer" online -- "1, one who carries a cross especially at the head of an ecclesiastical procession. 2, any of a family (Cruciferae syn. Brassicaceae) of plants including the cabbage..." Worse than tomatoes!
So throw tomato halves at the sand rats.
No wonder these muzzie asshats regressed after mohamhead appeared on the scene. I’m waiting for them to start walking on all fours again.
