'Tomatoes are Christian,' Salafi group warns

42 posts in this topic

Still Waters

A Salafi group called the "Popular Egyptian Islamic Association" has warned Muslims against eating tomatoes on the grounds that the fruit is a "Christian food," NowLebanon.com has reported.

The group based its claim on the fact that a shape resembling a cross is revealed when one cuts a tomato in half.

The association published the warning on its Facebook page with a photo of a tomato cut in half, revealing a cross-shaped interior.

Well, an Apple has a five pointed Star in the middle if you cut it in half horizontally. What does that tell us?

Well, I expect it's probably something to do with the Illiminati. Most things are. :santa:

They should avoid anything grown from seeds, because Jesus talked about sowing seeds and the growth of seeds.

(Ealdwita Useless Snippet alert)

The 'cross' shape seen in a dissected tomato isn't the crux ordinaria or 'Latin' cross of Christianity. It's shaped more like the heraldic 'cross pattée, or formée, which is the shape used for the German Iron Cross award. So forget the Christian threat, but keep your eyes peeled for those dastardly Jerries!

And what about Donkeys, then? According to popular legend, the cross pattern on their back originated when Christ rode one into Jerusalem.

They could still have beefsteak tomatoes, they don't look like that. That looks like a plum tomato.

I was thinking the same thing. There are lot's of tomatoes that don't have a cross in them.

I guess I can sympathise a bit with them on this... I mean in the grand scheme of things Islam is a realtively young religion (as major religions go) and all the good foods have already been taken...

Whats left? Asparagus? I'd be depressed too....

Hmmm... I think they must have found Christian symbolism in the definition of "common sense" :passifier:

About the OP, no one takes such people seriously, but they do provide a source for some good jokes and right now Egyptians need a good laugh!
