Egypt: Islamist Group Forbids Eating Tomatoes Because They Are ‘Christian’

“Allah” — the alleged creator of all things in Islam — creating food with crosses, not to mention “Zionist” snowflakes? Oh, the humanity! I wonder how they feel about the fact that the universe itself exists as a “Trinity” of time, space and matter, which are themselves comprised of past-present-future, length-width-depth, and solid-liquid-gas? Will they begin forbidding any discussion about the nature of the universe due to the fact that it was created as “Trinities within a Trinity”? …

By Angie Nassar – “This makes perfect sense… because it makes no sense.

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.” Read more.

Maybe someone should remind these Islamists that Facebook was a Jewish creation. Perhaps they’ll then ban Facebook, eliminating another way of spreading this nonsensical drivel …

Flashback: Egyptian Sheikh: Chevrolet’s Logo Resembles Christian Cross, Issues Fatwa Forbidding Muslims from Buying or Driving Chevys – “A Salafi sheikh in Egypt has reportedly issued a fatwa that buying [or driving] a Chevrolet vehicle is haram because the American brand’s logo looks like the Christian cross. In the video below, prominent Egyptian TV presenter Amr Adeeb takes the sheikh’s joke-of-a-fatwa to task, saying, ‘We’ve reached a really strange place with this.’ ‘The car’s been around [for a century] and only now did you notice there’s a cross on the car?’” Read more.

Flashback: Islamist Group Bans Samosas After Deciding They’re Too ‘Christian’ – “Apparently triangles are not halal in Somalia. These exceptionally deep-thinking Islamists would rather see children starve to death than see them eat a three-sided snack food. It might remind somebody of the Trinity. Finally, I understand my addiction to Doritos. And thank goodness it never snows in Somalia, otherwise Jack Handey bin Laden would have to issue a fatwa against Jack Frost bin Chillin, and we’d never enjoy a White Christmas ever again …” Read more.

Flashback: Saudi Arabia May Ban Letter ‘X’ Because of Similarity to a Christian Cross – “A group of Islamic clergy in Saudi Arabia has condemned the letter ‘X’ because of its similarity to a hated banned symbol – the cross. The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, which has the ultimate say in all legal, civil and governance matters in the kingdom, issued a fatwa, or religious edict, against the ‘X.’ It came in response to a Ministry of Trade query about whether a Saudi businessman could be granted trademark protection for a new service with the English name ‘Explorer.’” Read more.

    I would say if they saw the cross in a tomato then God was trying to tell them something. This would be funny if it wasn’t so serious.

    Pray for their conversion.

    Yes that’s very true. Thanks for reminding me, indeed we do need to pray for their conversion.

    God made tomatoes. These tomatoes have crosses in them. God created tomatoes that have crosses in them. Everything that sows a seed is good. God created tomatoes that have crosses in them and it is good! Be silent!

    Also, the world isn’t dependent on Muslim oil, or things would be far worse. Do not believe the lies of the media. The oil sheiks fear Israeli nukes.

    By the way, how do Muslims know the difference between a case of taqiyya, and a genuine apostate?

      kitman is relatively unknown but another mechanism frequently used. it is similar to taqiyya and can even be a part of it but includes omission.

    I’m not sure where your going with your last two comments, but I do know the Bible commands us to pray for our enemies, and to love everyone as we love ourselves. I personally am praying for the whole of the middle east for God’s mercy, love and guidance. Because they all need the light of Christ. Our Lord tells us that all liars will have their part in the lake of fire. I believe that. God Bless.

      Amen to that! I randomly pray for worldwide salvation. When Jesus comes, I hope the full number of Gentiles will be maxed out

    Islamists in Turkey and Iran like swastikas, however, even though they are cross-shaped, per earlier stories posted by ICA.

      Today tomatoes in the crosshairs tomorrow: Doritos

    Thank you Islamists for making me to know that there is a cross inside tomato. Now I understand that Jesus is God therefore he made to know us that He is the God of creation and Allah is not. If Allah was the creator he would’t put the cross inside tomato.
