Not only is Islam not a “Religion of Peace” — an expression coined by George W. Bush, lest we forget — some Muslims are downright demented.
A radical Islamic group called Salafists are urging fellow Muslims not to eat tomatoes because the veggie-fruit is Christian.
Bare Naked Islam on June 17, 2012, reblogging a post from the site Iran Aware, alerts us to the Salafist group called the Popular Egyptian Islamic Association that issued a warning about eating tomatoes on its Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/IEPAS
Because the dementers found a tomato that, when cut in half, appears to reveal the shape of a cross. Here’s the pic of the tomato:
Accompanying the tomato pic is this warning:
“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).”
You just can’t make this stuff up!
