Chevrolet cars Banned in Egypt for having Cross as Logo

submit to reddit

One of the spiritual leaders of Egypt issued a fatwah (law, regulations) which banned Muslims from driving Chevrolet vehicles. According to the new law, Muslims must not drive Chevrolet cars because the logo of the company is a Christian cross.

The religious law, which bans the use of the cars made by one of the world’s best-known automotive company, raised many eyebrows in Egypt. Many Egyptians found the new fatwah “strange”.

Amr Adib, a popular TV host, made jokes about the new law in his program. The Chevrolet brand exists for 100 years, but the Christian cross on the logo was noticed only in 2012, he said. Egypt, the host added, had a great deal of more important problems to deal with.

It is worthy of note that there are several theories about the origin of the Chevrolet “cross.” One of them says that the designer of the logo was inspired with the pattern on the wallpaper of one of Paris hotels. Another one says that the author of the logo borrowed the idea from an American coal company. Some people say that the designer tried to make a logo that would look like a bow-tie.

    Another self-important, spiritual moron. There should be a Fatwah against this fool to make Fatwahs.

    They’re not happy in Gaza.
    They’re not happy in Egypt.
    They’re not happy in Libya.
    They’re not happy in Morocco.
    They’re not happy in Iran.
    They’re not happy in Iraq.
    They’re not happy in Yemen.
    They’re not happy in Afghanistan.
    They’re not happy in Pakistan.
    They’re not happy in Syria.
    They’re not happy in Lebanon.

    So, where are they happy?

    They’re happy in Australia.
    They’re happy in the UK.
    They’re happy in Canada.
    They’re happy in the US.
    They’re happy in France.
    They’re happy in Germany.
    They’re happy in Italy.
    They’re happy in Sweden.
    They’re happy in Denmark.
    They’re happy in Norway.
    They’re happy in Switzerland.

    So, they’re happy in every country that is not Muslim.
    And who do they blame?
    Not the Islam.
    Not their leadership.
    Not themselves.

      How do you know who’s happy? You said people in the US are happy? I don’t think so. We have a government ramming a police state and a homosexual agenda down our throats. We have monumental unemployment figures. We’ll soon lose the ability to dream. We’ll soon lose the ability to even hope. Ok, I’m through.

      Secondly, when the Bible attacks praying on beads, golden calves, etc, it was attacking a competing religious system .. in Egypt. If the Bible wants to go around attacking other peoples’ religions, then Christianity shouldn’t be too surprised when someone else attacks it.
      Looks to me like Christianity/Judaism can dish it out, but can’t take it. Just saying.

    On the other hand, if we started passing out brand new Corvettes in Egypt, I bet they’d take them!
