Saudi Arabia arrests six men for anti-Islam Geert Wilders cake
Saudi Arabia’s ridiculous sounding The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice in Saudi Arabia has arrested six Arab men for selling cakes deemed offensive to Islam.
The commission raided the shop after they received a tip from a client complaining about the cakes that featured a plane and anti Islam messages… The messages were inspired by Geert Wilders’ idea for a new Saudi flag. His idea changes the Islamic declaration of faith into anti Prophet, anti Islam and anti Koran words.
Wilders is the Dutch filmmaker and MP banned from the UK for making anti-Islamic comments and whose bitter hatred of Islam marks him out as a curio for professors and students in mental health to observe and write theses on.
Wilders distributed these flag stickers in May, causing Saudi Arabia to issue trade sanctions against the Netherlands. Frans Timmermans, then the Minister of Foreign Affairs, had to visit the kingdom to calm tensions.
The NL Times then delivers this wondrous line:
Social media users have called for stiff action against the offenders, condemning the use of cakes to target local values and traditions.
Next time use Jaffa cakes. Which are biscuits, right?
