Allah on Burger King ice cream lids

When divine objects plop out of chickens' assholes we do not see any Muslims running around butchering blasphemous chickens. But let Burger King's Ice Cream lids appear slightly similar in script to the Arabic 'Allah' and they have a cow. Last September Burger King in the UK had to recall its Ice Cream Cones because a design on the lid looked like the word Allah. One Muslim complained about the coloured symbol - meant to be a spinning whirl - on its range of BK Cones.
Shooting The Messenger, 17 Sep 2005, Burger King Says It's Sorry For Offending Allah
THE fast-food chain, Burger King, is withdrawing its ice-cream cones after the lid of the dessert offended a Muslim.
The man claimed the design resembled the Arabic inscription for Allah, and branded it sacrilegious, threatening a "jihad".
The chain is being forced to spend thousands of pounds redesigning the lid with backing from The Muslim Council of Britain. It apologised and said: "The design simply represents a spinning ice-cream cone."
The offending lid was spotted in a branch in Park Royal last week by business development manager Rashad Akhtar, 27, of High Wycombe.
He was not satisfied by the decision to withdraw the cones and has called on Muslims to boycott Burger King. He said: "This is my jihad. How can you say it is a spinning swirl? If you spin it one way to the right you are offending Muslims."
A Muslim Council spokesman said: "We commend the sensitive and prompt action that Burger King has taken."
So as long as the word Allah appears to have been made by nature, it's OK. When infidels do it - it's blasphemy.
Miracles of Islam has a number of photos depicting 'Allah' on various natural entities:
Allah's name appears on the Oceans - picture from Apollo 11 Shuttle
A Plant Fashions itself to Display the Name of Allah.
Allah's Name Written by the Clouds.
So what's at work here? If it's an accident of nature it's a miracle; but if it's an accident of man, it's a blasphemy?
And yes, I know we shouldn't single out just Muslims on this. Even some Christians objected to AOL's new slogan, and we all recall the grilled cheese Madonna that sold for 28 grand. But the difference is that no buildings were burned down nor did anyone die because of an insult to Christianity.
