And you thought cartoon outrage was about ice cream & Nike outrage?
That's right...courtesey of Dhimmi Watch, the UK's Sun reported in September of 2005 about ice creams being withdrawn from Burger King — because a design on the lid looks like the word Allah.

The fast food chain had dozens of complaints about the coloured symbol - meant to be a spinning whirl - on its range of BK Cones. Now I've heard it all,
sacrilegious ice cream. Bloody brilliant.

On June 22, 1989, a newspaper closely linked to the political opposition printed a story stating that a sandal produced by Footwear had the word
Allah as part of the design on the insole and that this was an insult to all Muslims. The story went on to link Footwear with Salman Rushdie and an international Jewish conspiracy against Muslims. The situation deteriorated rapidly and soon involved the threat of student demonstrations and criminal charges against John Carlson, the Managing Director, and three other Footwear managers.

Does all this Muhammad insecurity leave anyone else wondering if Muslim's really believe in the Prophet as much as they say?

Oh well, Allahu Akbar!!!
