    May 29, 2012 McDonald's toy causes Saudi heads to explode

    Rick Moran

    Nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to crazy Islamists. But this story about a McDonald's Happy Meal toy figurine that some Saudi religious fanatics see the name of the prophet being stepped on is just incredible.
    Ray Ibrahim:
    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    In response, "Saudi McDonald's" has withdrawn the toy from all its restaurants, "in order to safeguard against any accusations or misunderstandings."
    Maybe it was able to "pass the supervision" at McDonalds because the drooling fanatics see something that isn't there.
    I'd hate to think what the "strongest possible punishment" they might have in mind. Perhaps immersing the manager's hand in the boiling french fry oil. A real torture would be to make them all eat the Filet-o-Fish sandwiches. Or fries that are 3 hours old. Or a Big Mac made by an uninterested 15 year old kid.

    No matter. The Religion of Perpetual Outrage will find something else to vent their rage against. Maybe they think the Kentucky Fried Chicken Colonel looks too much like the prophet. Or they'll find a hidden message insluting to Islam in a Whopper.

    When you are disconnected from reality, the possibilities are endless.

    Finally, common ground between San Francisco leftists and Saudi clerics! Besides hatred of Israel, that is.

    There is no hope for these people. A few years ago they all walked out of a meeting because the ringtone on someone's cell phone sounded (to them) like the Muslim call to prayer.

    McDonalds probably kills hundreds of people a year with their greasy food, and they should be punished over a toy? lol. Oh boy. Grow up Saudis.

    Correction: Hundreds of people die every year because they eat too much greasy food, some of it from McDonalds.

    Exactly.

    However, the issue here, if I may bring us back to the OP, is a mindset that is so paranoid, hypersensitive and violent that it seeks offense in the most innocuous of places. It is a mindset that riots and kills over cartoons, burnt books, even a swirl on the top of an ice cream cone. It cannot be reasoned with, appeased or peacefully coexisted with, but must be defeated.

    All so true yet wasted logic/common sense on libertards. The liberals will simply quibble away with the most non sensical excuses for all things either embraced by their handlers or supported by conservatives. Logic takes a back seat to ideology for liberals, no matter how stupid.
