Lego accused of racism by Turkish community who say toy is offensive because it is 'based on a mosque'
From the Daily Mail.
Lego has been accused of racism by the Turkish community over a Star Wars toy allegedly depicting a mosque. The critics claim that the Jabba's Palace model, part of Lego's Star Wars range, offends Muslims as it resembles the Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul - one of the world's most renowned mosques.
Members of the Turkish Cultural Community of Austria group also accused the toy manufacturer of depicting Asians as having 'deceitful and criminal personalities'.
'We regret that the product has caused the members of the Turkish cultural community to come to a wrong interpretation, but point out that when designing the product only the fictional content of the Star Wars saga were referred to.'
What ever would they have done had the picture below not been a 2006 spoof?

Of course, what everybody's ignoring is that the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople was originally a Greek Orthodox CHURCH, and that it was a church for no less than one thousand years before the Muslims invaded and sacked Constantinople and - in the haunting words of a writer whose name I cannot now remember - "the most beautiful church in Christendom became a mosque".
The stereotypical Muslim mosque design - box and dome - is a ripoff of the classic Greek Orthodox church design! The Orthodox Christians are the ones who should be offended.
And the awful truth is that mosques have very frequently been and still are fons et origo of precisely the sorts of vile behaviours that one sees inside Jabba's palace.
Infidel women - and little girls - were seized and stripped naked and used and abused as sex slaves - even tortured, mutilated and murdered - by Mohammedan gang bosses, including the Sultans of Constantinople.
Mohammed himself was a rapist,. a person who captured and enslaved people, raped captives and slave girls (Safiyya whose husband was murdered at Mohammed's orders on the very same day that Mohammed raped her and added her to his harem; and Rayhana, and Maria the Copt) and made money by selling people as slaves, people who had been free people until his gang of armed bandits appeared on the scene, killing and robbing.
Mohammed was, if anything, worse than Jabba the Hutt (who is simply a stereotypical Organised Crime Boss). And untold numbers of Mohammed's followers have been exactly like him - many a sultan, pasha and bey, many a sheikh, and many a run-of-the-mill Mohammedan male seizing and raping and imprisoning and brutalising non-Muslim females. Like those Mohammedthugs who, all over the UK, have been preying upon underage non-Muslim girls and, in some cases, branding them as if they were cattle.

"And untold numbers of Mohammed's followers have been exactly like him..." Can you guess the event Gibbon is describing in the following quotation? "The male sex was exterminated by the sword; ten thousand youths were led into captivity; the weight of the precious spoil exceeded the strength and number of the beasts of burthen; the superfluous remainder was burnt; and, after a licentious possession of ten days, ______ marched away from the naked and bleeding city."

Picture is a bit much for preaching to anyone outside the converted...
