    Malaysia's Proton Plans to Make 'Islamic Cars' With Iran, Turkey

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- Malaysian automaker Proton plans to team up with companies in Iran and Turkey to produce "Islamic cars" for the global market, a news report said Sunday.
    Proposed by Iran, the collaboration would include installing features in automobiles such as a compass to determine the direction of Mecca for prayers, and compartments for storing the Quran and headscarves, Proton's Managing Director Syed Zainal Abidin told national news agency Bernama.
    "What they (Iran) want to do is to call that an Islamic car," he was quoted as saying while on a visit in Iran. "The car will have all the Islamic features and should be meant for export purposes. We will identify a car that we can develop to be produced in Malaysia, Iran or Turkey."
    The report didn't give further details.

    SUCH AS: Extra compartments for safe storage of roadside bombs.

    Don't forget the device that keeps women from turning it on.

    Can't you see the salesmen pitching this thing to a prospective buyer?
    "Look at all that trunk space! Why, you can fit a ton of explosives or three infidels in there, AND still have room for one or two of your brides to sit comfortably!"

    Doesn't this modern technology go against everything the Koran says? How dare Malaysia conform to Western ways of thinking.

    As long as its got enough pep to run over a few of those westerners, it's all good. Says so on page 73 of the Koran.

    How are these jokes not racist? Are all Muslims terrorists?

    Would be much funnier if they were making an Islamic version of "Cars" the Pixar movie.

    Because Islam is not a race.
  11. I can see the commercials: "... and for the extremists, we bring you the new Jihad! Features include a hatchback and hidden trunk space for kidnapping journalists."

    Will there be factory-installed nail bombs?
