Fatwa Issued Against Tomatoes

Apparently Maters are now Haram in Egypt.

A Salafist group called the Popular Egyptian Islamic Association has come under fire after sending out a warning on Facebook urging its followers not to eat tomatoes because the vegetable (or fruit) is a Christian food.

See the cross there, the represents those pesky cross worshipers. Not to mention that tomatoes are in the nightshade family and poisonous varieties of Nightshade are known as the Sodom's Apple.

Hat Tip: Zip.
