Ice Cream Blasphemy: "I Feel Humiliated!" Waaaahhhhhh!!!

Ice Cream Blasphemy: "I Feel Humiliated!"

Cartoon Jihad gives way to Ice-Cream Fury!

Do you like "Allah Ice-Cream"? If not, stay away from that Dark Den of Satanic Evil, Burger King.

From a report in Harpers, the artistic graphic on the cardboard lid of their ice-cream cones spells the word "Allah", insulting Muslims the world over. So once again, it is "BEHEAD THOSE WHO INSULT ISLAM"!!! Down on your knees, Burger King!!

And double-damn you if you dare to now throw that bit of wrapper into the garbage can, which is tantamount to flushing a Koran in your toilet, something which Evil Westerners do on a frequent basis, to deliberately provoke peaceful Muslims.

It makes one appreciate the crazy Christians who see an image of Jesus or Mother Mary in a slice of toast, or on a bit of lumber. At least they don't claim the waitress at the local diner is an Agent of The Devil, out to destroy the Church, and rather than burning down the bread factory or lumber mill, would simply make a nuisance of themselves with shrines and such in the parking lot. Which is to say, there's a gigantic difference in the relative levels of human armoring and the urge-to-violence between the secularized Judeo-Christian West and the Muslim world.

In my Saharasia book, one of the 63 variables for indicators of extreme armoring and patrism was "extreme insult sensitivity" (see p.418-420). Using a world sample of 400 different cultures as given in the Textor data base (read my book Saharasia for details) that variable is positively correlated, at a statistically-significant level, to the following other cultural factors:

Low Infant Indulgence
Low Child Nurturing
Low Infant Breastfeeding
Marital Residence Near Male Kin
Unrestricted Polygamy
High Class Stratification
Slavery is Present
High Military Glory Emphasis
Bellicosity is High
Narcissism Index is High
Boastfullness is Extreme

Clearly, this kind of "I Feel Humiliated" impulse comes from having been neglected as a child, and then growing up in a highly structured patriarchal-authoritarian society composed of narcissistic warlike adults with a hair-trigger temper. In short: Islam.
