Legos & the Turkish Cultural Community of Austria

Muslim folks haling from the Turkish Cultural Community of Austria are pissed because Jabba’s Lego Palace resembles the Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul:

The Jabba’s Palace Lego po’d the Turkish Cultural Community of Austria group

Lego has been accused of racism by the Turkish community over a Star Wars toy allegedly depicting  a mosque.

The critics claim that the Jabba’s Palace model, part of Lego’s Star Wars range, offends Muslims as it resembles the Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul – one of the world’s most renowned mosques.

Members of the Turkish Cultural Community of Austria group also accused the toy manufacturer of depicting Asians as having ‘deceitful and criminal personalities’.

I wonder what this Muslim group thinks of the DARTZ Motorz Company’s Black Snake.

  1. Personally, I wonder if they have bothered to educate themselves about the fact that it’s called “Hagia Sophia” because it’s really an Orthodox Christian basilica until the “religion of peace” came around took it, or do they even care about that?

    If they get to take offence to something like that, then I feel entitled to taking offence to them violating a place of worship built by a completely different culture and religion, and claiming it to belong to them because they put up a few murals where they’d hacked out some of the old ones.

  2. Struan: I love Turkish culture right around Thanksgiving. . .
    Anthony: Very good point, but I doubt they care or know.

  3. Is that something like what the current administration has done to and for NASA, that its current mission is to be a “Muslim outreach” thing???…a sad letdown to co-opt what a once proud organization has been…reality and history tend to take it in the shorts for political correctness….waiting for that wake-up call….k
