Naughty "Fatwa Friday" in Ohio

We read:

"A car commercial proclaiming a "jihad on the US auto market" and offering "Fatwa Fridays" with free swords for the kids is offensive and should not be aired, Muslim leaders said overnight.

The radio advertisement for the Dennis Mitsubishi car dealership in Columbus, Ohio, has "a whole jihad theme," said Adnan Mirza, director of the Columbus office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations....

Mr Mirza said several local radio stations had already rejected the ad and he hoped the controversy would convince the dealership to rethink its sales strategy.


The advertisement has not yet even been aired.
