A simple tweet with link to above image has caused Islamic outrage in Egypt. One would think they would be pleased with the image, go figure.

The Horror!!

CAIRO - An Egyptian Christian telecom mogul has angered Islamic hard-liners by posting an online cartoon of Mickey Mouse with a beard and Minnie in a face veil.

The ultraconservative Islamists, known as Salafis, called the cartoon posted by Naguib Sawiris on Twitter a mockery of Islam. They launched an online campaign calling on Muslims in Egypt to boycott Sawiris' mobile phone company Mobinil. Shares of Mobinil and Orascom Telecom, which Sawiris founded, both fell Monday on the Egyptian stock exchange.

Sawiris, who is also a politician, promotes a secular Egypt. He owns media companies and, after President Hosni Mubarak stepped down on Feb. 11, he launched a political party that calls for separation of state and religion.

Sawiris tweeted an apology:

Twitter _Naguib Sawiris_ I apologise for any who do .jpg

The apology means nothing to these Islamic rage boys, they are out to destroy him and his business. Facebook and twitter campaigns have been launched against him.

The Blaze has more on this

h/t RP who noted none of the MSM have the offending image. Unlike MSM I have no problem posting the image......Fatwa?
