Saad El-Katatni speaker of the People's Assembly referred to the economics committee the issue of Chinese-made children's toys that "humiliate Islam and its figures."

Parliament member Mustafa Morsy made a speech during Monday’s session about how imported games and toys can be harmful to Egyptian and Muslim culture.

“Our kids play with computer games in which you shoot the holy Quran and Islamic symbols,” Morsy said in his speech.

“This toy gun for example costs only five pounds and when you shoot, it says ‘shoot Sayyida Aisha,' wife of Islam’s prophet Muhammad,” Morsy claimed while showing a colourful toy gun during the session.

“Kuwaiti law punishes anyone who humiliates Muslim figures like prophets and their families,” he added.

There was a recent debate in Saudi Arabia about a similar toy gun that, when the trigger is pulled, says “Go go go, pull over and save the hostages". Some claimed that it says “shoot Sayyida Aisha.”

Death to the belittler,
Most of us, Christians, Jews, Messianics, Bahai, etc., would be dead if Sharia becomes the law of America, as it is already becoming in our European "partners' and our neighhoring Canada.. Canada.....

YOU HAVE TO LAUGH!
No jobs, No money, No investment, No petrol, No gas to cook with, Blood on the streets, Fighting everyday, No security, Dead bodies in Abasaya.... But what do Parliament do? They spend their time talking about Chinese toys??? Do we really believe that this country will get any better? With this kind of thinking we will always be a 3rd world country who rely on other countries money! The joy we face everyday for having an Islamic majority Parliament! The sooner these people start working for the "People of Egypt" and not their own agenda the better!
