Salafist Group Warns Followers To Avoid Eating Christian Tomatoes


The Salafists claim the tomato is a Christian food because it has a cross in it. (Now Lebanon)

Salafists warned Egyptians to stop eating tomatoes because it’s a Christian fruit which holds the Cross in it.
Now Lebanon reported, via ROP:

A Salafist group called the Popular Egyptian Islamic Association has come under fire after sending out a warning on Facebook urging its followers not to eat tomatoes because the vegetable (or fruit) is a Christian food.

The group posted a photo on its page of a tomato – which appears to reveal the shape of a cross after being cut in half – along with the message: “Eating tomatoes is forbidden because they are Christian. [The tomato] praises the cross instead of Allah and says that Allah is three (a reference to the Trinity).

[God help us]. I implore you to spread this photo because there is a sister from Palestine who saw the prophet of Allah [Mohammad] in a vision and he was crying, warning his nation against eating them [tomatoes]. If you don’t spread this [message], know that it is the devil who stopped you.”

In 2007 Al Qaeda in Iraq warned street vendors not to place tomatoes beside cucumbers because the vegetables are different genders.

    Those four sides of the tomato represent the chambers of the heart. In other words, eating tomatoes is good for your heart. It has nothing to do with the Crucifixion. Man, these Muslims are brainwashed to the extreme!

  • BurmaShave

    These silly people; don’t they know you’re supposed to slice the tomato from top to bottom not across? -;)

    Sounds good to me.

    Less for them, more for everyone else.

    There must be some term or diagnosis for this mass, widespread mental illness that masks itself as religion. I’m speechless..

  • dunce

    If they believe God created the world, then that includes tomatoes. Of course he created pigs too.

  • Truck Monkey

    They should love this tomato. That is the Iron Cross of Nazi fame.

  • SeniorD

    Pretty soon they’ll be outlaing Sand Dollars for the same reason.

  • Danny Lemieux

    Pretty amazing! Tomatoes are of South American Origin. They hadn’t even been discovered by the Old World when Mohammed was around. Ah well, let them slide back into barbarism, with or without pizza or spaghetti sauce.

  • CV1

    I hope the media follow up on this story. Let’s see if Muslims have still abandonned the tomato after six months…maybe a year.

    Sounds like a cheap news story to me.

  • Nina

    Too late—your dead.

    Really, this is a stretch. That’s the first tomato I ever seen with a cross and that’s because it’s distorted. lol

  • Big T Machine

    Truck Monkey , the German Iron Cross is based on the Cross of the Teutonic Knights from the thirteenth century and has nothing to do with National Socialism, unlike the swastika. That being said, these guys and Obama’s pals the Muslim Brotherhood are all fascist nutjobs.

  • Tim in Cali

    Hey Salafists, all veggies are Christian foods.You’ll have to eat only dogs ,like your leader Barack Kardashian…mm mm mm

    I’m not quite sure what is worse – that these people are really that stupid, or that so many on the left put them on a pedestal only slightly lower then “the One’s”…

  • Patty

    And the Italians love tomatoes, too. What sort of beliefs are these. So, happy that we live here and they live there. Some anyway.

    I suppose the scopes on their weapons should be included in the cross-purging?

    Is this the kind of scientific contribution that NASA is supposed to conduct outreach to Muslim countries for?

    Somebody should warn those folks about living, working, or shopping in wood or steel framed buildings. Everywhere those beams and joists meet they form a Christian cross which dis-honors allah. They must immediatly burn down those structures and go back tents or mud and stone huts. I would advise, however that they leave the mud and stone huts before all earthquakes.

    Yes, Imam, but what if the good Muslim crushes the tomato and it’s abhorrent cross before cooking or eating the tomato? Would not this be another way to honor Allah and his Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him, much as you have told us burning down churches, desecrating cemeteries, or murdering Jews and Christians are blessed ways to honor Allah?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Why bother? Tell em to take shelter. It saves on brass and lead in future endeavors.

    Wonder how they feel about a BigMac HAMburger?
    A HAMburger with the patty cooked on a grill that’s been seasoned with smoked bacon grease is just not complete without a huge slice of tomato now is it?
    Ahh hell, their loss…. But raw goat burger, cut the tomato, to go, ain’t ever gonna sell, I’ll bet.

  • Limousine Barry

    I agree.

    Eat the rotten tomatoes.

    ((((Splat))))

    Who threw that rotten tomato against my Limousine! You can’t hide from Eric Holder. Well, you can if you pay him enough. Good day.

  • OldSailor

    Tomatos are a creation of God’s. Do these nutbars beleave that God Himself is a Christian or is anti-Muslim? Talk about not have both oars in the water …

    “Al Qaeda in Iraq warned street vendors not to place tomatoes beside cucumbers because the vegetables are different genders. ”

    Islam would be a big joke if it were not for all the murders, beheadings, mutilations, pedophilia, necrophilia, bestiality and other perversions they embrace.

    It is OK to have sex with your goat or your recently dead wife, but please don’t put your tomatoes and cucumbers next to each other and don’t cut your tomatoes across.

    Try halving it the other way; that’s what the anti-Christ does. /silliness

    Much like the ‘leaders’ of the leftist stupidity, it appears that amongst mooslimes those with any modicum of intelligence or skill do NOT matriculate into the religion’s priesthood. Rather, all the mental defectives and nutters do. QED.

  • Bad Actor

    These folks are truly from the 8th century. Let’s develop our natural resources and tell those cretins to drink their oil, or whatever. We don’t need them. Let them kill each other, the Shiites and the Sunnis.

  • suess

    Scary thought, but a tomato would be an easy fruit to inject with poison, maybe they’re getting their followers to stop eating tomatoes for some huge tomato terrorist attack, lol. I also have to wonder, what would the offspring of a cucumber and tomato look like? Lol! 😉

    All this just makes that BLT a little more delicious. Lets tell the religitards that lettuce is an evil Christo/Satanic plot and we’ll have a trifecta – the world’s most perfect sandwich.
