Jihad against the giant teapot

Arsonists have attacked the base of a small inter-faith sect in Malaysia called the Sky Kingdom.
The sect is noted for building a giant teapot to symbolise its belief in the healing purity of water, and is accused of luring Muslims away from Islam.
Bad teapot!

Allah is finally happy, the evil teapot was distroyed. A couple years ago, muslims blew up thousands of year old buddist statues, now teapots that threaten them. See how tolerant islam is when it is the majority. I am surprised the pyramids are still standing. Next will be gothic cathedrals in Eurarbia.

Did you know:

Throughout Arabian elections, the Fundamental Conservatives consistently pulled less than 5%. These aren't even the groups advocating violence, but are the fundamental ideas behind the attackers. I think this shows fairly well how the fundamentalists are not supported by the rest of Islam, despite what you would have us believe :P

Islamists Dominate Saudi Arabia Elections
JIDDAH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - Candidates backed by conservative clerics dominated the final stage of Saudi Arabia's landmark municipal elections, according to results announced Saturday. In the kingdom's commercial capital of Jiddah, the seven winning candidates were those whose names appeared on what was dubbed the "golden list" - the picks of fundamentalist clerics.

Five of the six winners in Buraydah, capital of ultraconservative Qassem province, also received a clerical nod, and the holy city of Medina also saw Islamist candidates finishing well. Many Islamists also won seats in municipal council polling elsewhere in February and March.

...

Nabil Qamlu, a liberal lawyer who lost to one of Jiddah's "golden" candidates, accused the powerful clergy of interfering in the elections. Some losing candidates were expected to lodge complaints with the election commission, which largely ignored such complaints made before the vote.

"This is neither democracy nor equal opportunity," Qamlu said. "Who has given them such power to determine whom should the electorate choose.

"For the next election, I must grow a beard in order to get elected."
