Those silly Muslims... They get angry at the drop of a hat. Cartoons, cubes... What doesn't piss them off?
A message was posted at the terrorist al-Hesbah website claiming that the giant Apple cube in New York is "clearly meant to provoke Muslims."
It doesn't take much, does it?
I wonder if our favorite square blogger would be considered an insult? ;)
The website claims that the Apple building is meant to mock the Kabba, a cubicle structure located at the center of Mecca, and said that it hopes "that Muslims will be able to stop the project."
Um, guys... You're a little late. Apple opened the underground store about five months ago.
Not only that, but the website compared the glass cube with a picture of it during it's construction, when it was draped with a black cloth, comparing it with the black Kabba.
The website also decried the sale of alcohol at the store, and complained that it was named "Apple Mecca," despite the store actually being named Apple Fifth Avenue Store, and the only bar there only services and sells iPods.
But hey, what are a few misconstrued facts (or outright lies) amongst Islamofacists?
Anyone up for a beer?
