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.

  1. And they shall rule the world!

  2. kind of what the democratic party is doing to the united states, a law for everything.

  3. How any one can take them seriously…. PC has a LOT to answer for.

  4. So ignorant. So ridiculous.

  5. Now, I know why I love tomatoes.

  6. Francesa/#3 said,
    so ridiculous.


  7. 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!

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

  9. Salafists warned Egyptians to stop eating tomatoes because it’s a Christian fruit which holds the Cross in it.

    Sounds good to me.

    Less for them, more for everyone else.

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

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

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

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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. 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.

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