Muslim group in Egypt: "Eating tomatoes is forbidden because they are Christian" [see the Cross]
Jihad Watch ^ | 6-17-12

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 don’t spread this [message], know that it is the devil who stopped you.”

Yeah... no.

Predictably, Facebook users expressed outrage over the post, which prompted the group to clarify its stance on the controversy with the update, “We didn’t say you can’t eat tomatoes. We said don’t cut it in [such a way that reveals] the cross shape.”...

That’s a five-pointed star, so it’s obviously a Wiccan or Satanist fruit.

Islam is the manifestation of Mohammed’s Obsessive-Compulsive disorder. If you happen to fart while saying your prayers in the bathroom cleansing ritual, you have to begin the ritual all over again.

OK, I've figured out how to get rid of the jihadis: Just get a bunch of Southern rednecks together, and tell them that the jihadis say they can't have 'maters in their BBQ sauce.

Problem solved.

I seem to remember them trying to ban women from buying cucumbers, or maybe putting cucumbers and other vegetables like tomatoes next to each other because they were too phallic looking.

I know there are few to no tomato hothouses in Gaza, but surely across the Arab world, there are Arab tomato farmers, hothouses and tomato field owners, wondering WTF

Probably about four years ago, there was a story on the national news about a Jewish settlement that was ceded by the Government to the "other guys"..
The folks left their greenhouses, water systems, and all the piping so the new "occupants" could grow crops..
Well, the new occupants, started tearing apart anything metal, the pipes, greenhouse supports, etc to sell it all for scrap metal..Then they trashed the wooden growing tables, and the corrugated plastic walls.

It was disgusting to watch. Morons. Talk about self defeating behavior.
"Oh, look, here's a well, and irrigation system. Let's destroy it and sell it for scrap metal."

Oh well, maybe they can get into wheat... fields of wheat, acres of wheat, cream of wheat...

But...,but...wheat is a Christian symbol of converts. Remember the song "Bringing in The Sheaves"? Also, the fish is a well known symbol for Christian converts. Jesus said, "I will make you fishers of men". They better not eat fish either.

Thanks for the video. Freepers and others would not have to express hatred of Muslims, but rather should love them, through God's Holy Spirit, into the true Kingdom of God. People are people, and all people need and can understand love. If we make friends with a Muslim, love them and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them, God will do the rest. Many will be saved.

I read about a harem where the Sultan forbade the residents to eat cucumbers because they were used for, ahem, other purposes. (Those women were very frustrated.)

It just reminds me of WWI German fighter planes. I think the post WWII German AF used them, too.

Most young people today could not tell a Maltese cross from a swastika from a pentagram and a star of David anyway.
