Of course, because that building is the only domed structure in the entire universe. :roll:

Shouldn't they be bitching at Star Wars since the Lego set is based off the Star Wars design? What I'm pissed about is that it's the only lego set with a Twi'lek dancing girl mini-fig.

Isn't the mosque they are referring to originally a Christian Cathedral? So anything that vaguely looks like it, a domed structure is offensive? Damn, I thought PETA was bad about bullshit protests. Jabba's Palace actually looks like the Pantheon in Rome.

Yeah, it was a Roman Orthodox cathedral long before it was co-opted into a mosque.

Lol, I am surprised this made news somewhere else, here only the most mainstream news wrote about it but pretty much everyone took it as a joke.

Point is we are pretty much defenseless against such nonsense. Everywhere else immegrants are just told to shut up and start integrating themselves, as soon as we do it someone is sure to scream "NAZI". To be fair, most immegrants have no problem integrating themselves and mostly the second generation is indistinguishable from other austrians...the turks however are different. They want to live here, yet many refuse to even learn even german. Suffice it to say that if our immegration laws would be even half as strict as those of - let's say the US for example - we would need to send probably the majority of them back. Now of course this is a very rough generalization but wheras folks from other nations integrate themselves well, turkish folks is slowly building a subculture for themselves here and imho this will become a problem someday.

Ha! The issue you're describing sounds incredibly close to a complaint that millions of Americans make.

Actually, such sentiment in Europe is nothing new.
