Islamic Car to Be Ready in 2011

A spokesperson for Iranian company, Iran Khodro, says its "Islamic Car" should be readily available throughout the Middle East, parts of Asia, and Africa, in three years.

The car will have options including a compass to find Mecca and a compartment for a Koran. Priced between $8,700 and $12,000, the vehicle is meant to appeal to buyers who would like a car designed with Muslims in mind and produced by a company that acts in line with Muslim values.

Iran Khodro is working with Malaysia's Proton to bring the vehicle to Asia's Islamic markets, in a strategic initative to introduce the car worldwide.

The region's largest car manufacturer, Iran Khodro, produces vehicles under license from manufacturers including Peugeot, Renault, Suzuki and Mercedes-Benz.

Will it shout jihadist slogans before it blows up?

Press '1' to shout:
"77 virgins for me before we all die, Western slimedogs!!!"

Press '2' to shout:
"Bin Laden made me do it! AAAIIIIIEEEEEEEEEE!"

Bush and Darth Cheney can use it, too, for their Christian Conservative Corporate terrorism:
Press '1' to shout:
"Waterboarding is NOT torture--it's a little sip of Jesus, ya pagan!"

Press '2' to shout:
"Stop misunderestimating me! AND my friends in the oil business!"

Islamic Car Commercial

Coming in 2012 it's the "Islamic Car." Now you too can become a martyr in style. With rich Corinthian leather. Your new car will include such amenities as a built in cd player so you can listen to the rantings of your favorite immam while using the GPS to direct you to your target. The GPS also doubles as a detonator. The truck has sufficient space for everyone, from the shade tree bomber in the Gaza to the most discriminating martyr from Medina and Mecca. And here's the best, the Islamic Car will go to heaven with you and can miraculously expand to fit your 76 virgins. So save up and come on down to Ahmed's Islamic Car Emporium in 2012. No credit, no problem, we accept only cash. No se llama espanol.

Not a hybrid?

I note that it's not a hybrid. Is ecocide Koran-friendly, just like threaten-oppress-or-kill-everyone-who-doesn't-think-exactly-like-me-and-even-that-is-iffy-cide?

I guess "hybrid" is unIslamic, because it could be interpreted as meaning allowing infidels to coexist, women to mingle with men, or accepting some aspects of modern civilization.

Hah!

I bet the CIA hacks the factory and adds satellite GPS tracking to each car so that cruise missiles can easily take each one out. ;)

You guys are original

You're comments really show some potential, I'm sure as hell you would comment on a car designed for Africans and call them ni***rs. Oh wait you are allowed to be racists as long as it socially accepted by you're society. I can't wait till a major country claims you're religion, beliefs, and everything you grew to believe is considered a threat to humanity so some 32 year old immature men can make themselves look cooler while playing video games. Grow up

I'm appalled by the

I'm appalled by the hostility, if not outright hatred, expressed towards Muslims by so many comments here. One cannot judge an entire religious group based on the activities of extremists. WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE??? Should I follow your example of narrow minded judgement? If so, a la X-Files episode entitled "Home", I would expect you to roll your legless, armless, toothless mother out from under the bed and commence to fornicatin' so's you can keep yer simple-minded xenophobic line going strong!

The shame of it all...

I cant believe the comments... real shame, people just make hateful comments without knowing the truth. Really spread the reality that everyone in the west are racists. Your dwindling populations and decadent lifestyle will slowly reveal your true future... you are doomed.

Muslims against Shariah? Wake up you Swine Muncher!

Muslims against Shariah? get real!

What are you on? This is a blatant Christian Website. Eventough Christians are spending billions on trying to defame Islam, espeacially muslim women; the truth will always prevail Islam is the fastest growing religion in the west and 7/10 of reverts are women.

Maybe you should have a read of your bible, people are running away from Christianity, its countless scientific errors, jiberish, and pornography that are contained in this bible. Not only does the bible contradict established science but it contradicts itself!. If you truly want to follow Jesus (PBUH) and achieve salvation follow the Qura'n, and the Shariah of Muhammed (PBUH), as once Jesus (PBUH) returns he will break the cross and kill the swine, and follow the Shariah.

Wake up and read the Qur'an!
