Over at BelchSpeak, Pat has a link to an article about a new Lego toy, featuring a terrorist.....
I love the RPG and how the dude's brow is furrowed in righteous anger. And the scruffy beard characteristic of swarthy middle-eastern men is priceless.
Of course Muslims are shocked, shocked I say. Their whining is described as follows.....
Islamic terrorist militant Lego-style fighting figurines has sparked outrage among Muslims.
The toy mini-figures, made by American Will Chapman, includes a masked terrorist bandit with an assault rifle, grenade launcher and belt of explosives.
Shocked by the playthings, British Muslim organisation the Ramadhan Foundation has branded the figurines “absolutely disgusting”.
Chief executive Mohammed Shafiq said the figures were “glorifying terrorism”.
Gimme a break already! If terrorist perps weren't 99.9% Muslim, and if 99.9% of terrorists acts weren't done in the name of Islam, he might have a point. Savagery, barbarism, and blood-shed are integral parts of Islam as it's practiced by it's hightest profile zealots. That the rest of the world's Islamic practitioners sit on their hands while blood is shed, tells me that while they may not want to saw off the heads of infidels themselves, they agree in principle with the practice of infidel head-sawing.
If my kid were a little younger and into Legos, I'd buy the whole collection.
