The latest (/obvious/) offense to Austria's Exceptionally Oversensitive Muslim Turkish community originates with a toy manufacturer. Apparently Lego, bless their infidel hearts, now offers a Lego model of Jabba the Hut's palace. Sci Fi fans no doubt remember Jabba as a member of the Huts, a criminal organization on the planet of Tattoine, the "birthplace" of Luke Skywalker, son of Anakin and Padme. Anyway, the most oversensitive religion of Eurasia was able to find a similarity of the Lego model to that of a couple Muslim holy sites, one in Instanbul, and other, Beirut. See:Never mind that Islam is a religion, not a race.
Austria’s Turkish community said the model was based on Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul and that the accompanying figures depicted Asians and Orientals as people with “deceitful and criminal personalities.”
The Turkish Cultural Community of Austria released a statement calling for Lego to apologise for affronting religious and cultural feelings. The anger was provoked by “Jabba’s Palace”, a model of the home of Jabba the Hutt from Lego’s Star Wars product range based on the blockbusting series of science fiction films.
Jabba is the large slug-like creature who holds Han Solo captive in the film Return of the Jedi, and his palace is the setting for several crucial scenes, including using Princess Leia as his slave. Jabba’s domed home and accompanying watchtower bear, according to the statement, an unwanted resemblance to Istanbul’s great Hagia Sophia, and another mosque in Beirut.
Taking into account that many of the Lego figures carry weapons, the Turkish organisation also urged parents “not to buy toys of war or toys of discrimination” as the model goes against the “peaceful coexistence of different cultures in Europe”.Peaceful coexistence?
