First Take The Lego Out Of Your Own Toy Box

Lego-Style Islamic Terrorist Figurine Sparks Outrage
A Lego-style figurine resembling an Islamic terrorist strapped with explosives and made by a small American company has caused an uproar among Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

The controversial miniature figure, created by Seattle-based Will Chapman as part of his BrickArms military fighters line, is a bearded militant with a face-covering hood, a tiny toy assault rifle, a little grenade launcher and plastic bombs that can be attached to an explosives belt.

The character is called "Bandit — Mr. White" and sells for $14.

The jarring toy has outraged the British Muslim organization known as the Ramadhan Foundation, which called the figurine "absolutely disgusting," according to Sky News.

The foundation's chief executive, Mohammed Shafiq, complained that the toy is "glorifying terrorism."
I'm sorry, did you say "shocked"? How dare you feign shock over a toy when your own culture and religion uses children like this:
and this:


Personally, I think this toy is in bad taste at best, considering all the innocent lives that have been taken by terrorism. However, I'd prefer that you be "shocked" by the actual violence and murder perpetrated by your own people, Mr. Shafiq, before you start lecturing anyone else about "glorifying terrorism."
