"I apologise for any who don't take this as a joke, I just thought it was a funny picture no disrespect meant! Assef!! ". [sorry]
According to various news sources, Facebook pages materialized calling for a boycott of Sawiris' cell phone company, with one group accruing over 60,000 followers. Although I was unable to track it down, the "We are joking Sawiris" group supposedly had the following posted on its page:
"If you are really a Muslim, and you love your religion, boycott his projects. We have to cut out the tongue of any person who attacks our religion."It's quite obvious conservative Muslims lack a sense of humour. Time and again they demonstrate a serious inability to find the grace and humour in life, which is perhaps why they so often resort to violence. If they lightened up a bit, life would be much more pleasant- and peaceful- for the rest of the world. But no, they consistently choose to be offended by even the most innocuous of things. Like a veiled Minnie and bearded Mickey.
