"Fatwa Fridays"

It's almost October, have you been thinking about your kids are going to wear this Halloween? Some progressive car sales folks in Columbus, Ohio, are giving away some accessories this October that are to die for:

A car commercial proclaiming a jihad on the U.S. auto market and offering "Fatwa Fridays" with free swords for the kids is offensive and should not be aired, Muslim leaders said on Sunday.

The radio advertisement for the Dennis Mitsubishi car dealership in Columbus, Ohio, has "a whole jihad theme," said Adnan Mirza, director of the Columbus office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

"They are planning on launching a jihad on the automotive market and their representatives would be wearing burqas ... ," Mirza said. "They mentioned the pope in there and also about giving rubber swords out to the kiddies -- really just reprehensible-type comments."

I see what's in it for the kid-a-heen, but what about Mutwa and Fatwa?

That's hillarious.

Is that 'hilarious' as in 'funny', or some sort of word connected with Hillary Clinton?

If we don't make fun of them, then the terrorists will have won.

There's a lot of them about.

Given that Islamic suicide bombers come from a broad strata of Western Christian society then it is quite reasonable to believe that this non-Islamic youth is really an Islamic suicide bomber. I can see from the look of pain and angst on his face that he is outraged over the lack of social spending to fight the inner city vitamin shortages.

He also said the Council on American-Islamic Relations would likely contact the dealer to "offer some kind of cultural or sensitivity awareness training."-Reuters

Does that mean the car dealership is in for good old fashioned stoning?

Here is a really sane interview with a CAIR representative about the ad:
