Ministry of Irony: Turks Issue Fatwa Against Jabba's Fortress

Telegraph:

Lego has been accused of racism by the Turkish community over a Star Wars model that supposedly resembles one of Istanbul’s most revered mosques.
Not only does the model kind of sort of look like Hagia Sophia Turkey says the characters at Jabba's house hurt religious and cultural feelings, of Asians(Muslims) and Orientals(Muslims) because they portray them as armed, violent and prone to crimes like say terrorism, slavery, murder.

Which is kind of funny because the Hagia Sophia is a former Christian Basilica which was taken by when Mehmed the Conqueror. Mehmed's brutality was only surpassed by Vlad the Impaler.

But the main difference between Jabba the Hut and Mehmed the Conqueror is that Jabba wasn't gay.

Mehmed II ordered the 14-year old son of the Grand Duke Lucas Notaras brought to him "for his pleasure". When the father refused to deliver his son to such a fate he had them both decapitated on the spot.

Some dispute the account of Mehmed the Conqueror's gayness due to the fact that it he killed all the witnesses.

Furthermore according to Ottoman sources Notaras and all the other Christian dignitaries in the city were executed for purely political reasons.
See totally 100% not gay.

1 Why do we have to give a [beep] about their feelings? Their quran says 'lay any ambush against the unbelievers' and 'strike them at the neck'. That implies 'armed' and 'violent'.

3 "Mehmed's brutality was only surpassed by Vlad the Impaler."

Gosh, this is so, SO "WRONG"!! In the first place, Mehmed did what he did due to the 20th Century "occupation" of "Palestine" by the "evil" Jews, and in the second place, Vlad the Impaler was, like, the Dracula guy!

6 @MtTB Yeah Vlad knew WTF to do.... Mehmet was scared shitless of him.

Good man that Vlad, you just have to consider what side he was on, what he faced and the context of times.


One magnificent bastard!

Yep, the "In Search Of" episode onhim(1970's w/Leonard Nimoy) introduced me to the real guy, and Vlad was truly brutalized as a youngster by the Turks. I learned in the episode that he had nailed the caps of the Turkish ambassadors to their heads, as they had failed to doff them to him out of respect (he was either the ruler or nobility of a higher level than they) when they came to negotiate.

G_d, I wish we still did stuff like that.......

8 Can I lament the loss of the mosaic work which the Muslims plastered over in that cathedral-turned-mosque? I've seen the exquisite Byzantine mosaics in Ravenna, Italy. Even today, they shine as brightly as jewels. But those were in small churhes, how much more impressive they must have been in such a cathedral. What a waste.

9 Oops, it seems it wasn't all lost. Some has been uncovered it looks like.

10 @MtTB and here at Jawa we know how the turks really feel about things.

I can't recall the number of Turks posting about their "cockular" or whatever and wanting to cut my throat. They're pretty nasty, and gay.

Did I mention that Turks are gay?

11 I thought the whole point of this website, Jawa Report, was that muslims look like jawas (the muslim hoodie thing), LOL.

Hence, Jawa (muslim) Report.
