Tomatoes are a Crusader plot against Islam!!

**Posted by Phineas

And they wonder why we laugh and point sometimes:

OMG! A cross!!

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).

We all know this is ridiculous, of course. Tomatoes in no way offend Islam. Besides, they’re great in kebabs.

Ice cream cones, on the other hand, are an insult worthy of jihad.

UPDATE: And how could I forget that other decadent, anti-Islamic food, pizza?

  1. If the Muzzies began eating tomatoes, next it would be bacon, then baby back ribs. All the stores where I live (Little Kabul) would be sold out 9/11 weekend because of all the BBQ parties. Lets encourage them to leave Christian food alone. …I need to go make a BLT now, thank Jesus.

  2. More proof that nature itself points us to knowing that the Lord is God!!!

    I will be incorporating more tomatoes into my diet because they must be a holy fruit. LOL :o) – Lorica

  3. Extra tomato on my pizza please; and throw on some canadian bacon, pepperoni and ham bits for good measure.

  4. And wash it all down with some cold beer, too. They do not drink alcohol; that is why they are pi**ed off all the time, running around flying airplanes into the side of buildings and such.

  5. Surely the muslims also know to avoid apples. When cut horizontally, an apple reveals the seeds in the shape of the Star of Bethlehem. This symbolizes redemption of Christ’s birth within the apple that the serpent used to tempt Adam and Eve.

    Darned old Christian God is everywhere with symbols!

    Oh, and let’s not forget the Dogwood, whose flowers are in the shape of a cross and even have blood stains at the tips of the petals.

  6. David, Carlos:

    That is one of the things I have while visiting my mother in Maine when I am home from my job in Saudi Arabia – a meat lovers special containing “real” peperoni, bacon, Canadian bacon, and Italian sausage. YUM!

  7. Happened to have had one just the other day, at the Italian pizza joint named for Peter. Best pizza I’ve had in a while.

    And so anti-mooooslim! Makes it even better.

    My other favorite place on the road is a BBQ shack just down the street from where I stay north of Tacoma. Best all-around BBQ pork I’ve had outside of Texas.

  8. This is nonsense. As everybody knows, tomatos have three section and not four as shown on this manipulated picture. Cannot make a cross in a fruit that has three sections.
