Lego Caves to Jabba the Hutt Jihad

By Debbie Schlussel

Back in January, I told you about Austrian Muslims going nuts over a Lego Star Wars Jabba the Hutt Palace toy, which they claimed resembled two different mosques, including a Turkish church, the Hagia Sophia, which Muslims forcibly took over and converted into a mosque. And I predicted on my Facebook account that Lego would give in. Well, it didn’t take long. On Saturday, Lego announced that it would end production of Jabba the Hutt’s Palace. I don’t blame the uber-idiocy and absurdity of the Islamic community as much as I blame Lego for caving. As I’ve previously told you, I’d never buy Lego (except at a thrift shop, where it’s second hand) because Lego is part of the entire Danish anti-Israel, Islamo-pandering world. And, so, this is so predictable.

Behead All Jabba The Hutts & Legos That Insult Islam!

Austria’s Turkish community claimed a victory in its fight against Danish toy giant Lego yesterday after the firm agreed to withdraw a Star Wars toy set featuring a mosque-like building inhabited by an obese, hookah–smoking alien, following complaints that it was anti-Muslim.


Lego added the “Jabba’s Palace” playset to its Star Wars collection in 2012. But in January this year the set started to provoke outrage in Austria’s Islamic community after a Muslim father found that his sister had given one to his son as a present. . . .

Lego initially dug in its heels and refused the request. The company insisted the product was merely a faithful reproduction. “We see no reason to take it off the market, we have simply followed the film,” the company said.

But yesterday it emerged it had backed down and agreed to end its production from 2014 onwards. The decision followed a meeting in Munich between Turkish community leaders and Lego executives. Birol Killic, the president of the TCA, said in a statement: “We are very grateful and congratulate Lego on the decision to take Jabba’s Palace out of production.”

Jabba the Hutt Palace; Hagia Sophia Church Forcibly Converted to a Mosque

Lego was not available for comment yesterday. There was no explanation why the game was not scheduled for immediate withdrawal.

PUH-LEEZE. Of course, there is an explanation. It’s called Islam. It’s called Islamic intolerance, which is a repetitive phase. Sneeze the wrong way, and Muslims will be outraged. And, then, of course, the entire West will give in to this religions which holds everything hostage . . . not just planes on 9/11 and Western oil workers in Africa.

Expect Muslims to win more of these ridiculous toy jihads. If Lego caves, so will other toy companies. This isn’t the first time. But the instant lesson in all of this:

STOP. BUYING. LEGO.

So, Jabba the Hutt resembles a typical Muslim. That is interesting. Those Austrian Muslims drew a comparison that no one else would have thought of. They are not too sharp.

(OT: I have commented on Little Al’s last installment of the the blog post linked below, in case anyone is still interested in the dispute.

Good grief! Muslims make absurd “demands” just to keep wimpy infidels in the habit of continually deferring to the Ummah.

Go out and buy every one of these sets you can get your hands on. DON’T OPEN THEM. Store them in a closet out of sunlight for a couple years. Then throw them up on Ebay and see how many hundreds of dollars they go for. Trust me. Go to Ebay right now and search for Star Wars Lego sets. Discontinued sets sell for huge money.

Trust me. I’m a dork with over 1000 positive Ebay transactions. I know what I’m talking about.

I guess that Star Wars movie will be their next target, since it shows the “Mosque.” Will it end up being edited out of the movie?

@WilliamMunny, seems reasonable.
If the toy is offensive then why wouldn’t the movie that inspired it be more so.
This is the inevitable conclusion of PC madness and countries like Denmark are nothing if not PC.
As kid Lego was one of my favorite toys but I have to say I hope this decision costs them a lot of money.

Another company could create a similar product and make a fortune.

Mom could create palace birthday cakes and palace themed parties, then plaster their ideas all over social media and craft sharing websites.

That Jabba the Hutt Palace is going to be EVERYWHERE. hee hee

If I take a guava off one of the trees on my farm, cut it in half, place the two halves upside down on a plate, and top each one with a little dab of whipped cream, they MIGHT resemble mosques. Excuse me, I have to take one of my machetes and cut my head off, for even THINKING of such a deed.

Oh, the next time I see one of my favorite Danish cheeses in the supermarket, I’m going to pass right by it. Denmark can kiss the Jewish half of my ass in Macy’s window at high noon on December 24th.

I don’t think LEGO really caved in. I suspect they were going to discontinue production anyway. If you go to a LEGO store you will see that many themes only last a few weeks. Try finding a LEGO Sopwith Camel or Maersk ccontainer ship. There is a LEGO store in my mall and I even asked one of the salesman about this strategy.

    Then why even MEET with Muslims to discuss this? And why come to an agreement? I would have told them, look, you people say EVERYTHING offends your Islamic sensibilities, (as Debbie said, sneezing), this has gone too far. We’re taking a stand, and if you bomb our factories, we’re going to send Hansolo after you, LOL!!!

    When I predicted back in the early 80′s that some day getting offended would become a major problem in America, I never thought Islam would be one of the components in that cultural change. I also had predicted that some day Muslims would attack us on our own soil, but they have also learned all too well the “destroy a culture from within” philosophy. Now playing at a country near you, cultural jihad.

    Okay, time to sharpen those machetes, there’s a beheading at high noon, vile Jewish pig that I am.

    Alfredo from Puerto Rico on April 2, 2013 at 11:00 am

@Pete,
Yes I’m sure they didn’t get to be one of the biggest toy manufactures in the world by being idiots. No doubt they maximized their profit potential but there’s also no doubt they caved or they wouldn’t have resisted pressure initially.

Now that the precedent has been set special interest Muslim groups can focus on other things like attacking other smaller less well known companies or even getting Lego to respond more quickly next time round.

The funny thing about expediency is that it’s almost always not so expedient for somebody else or even yourself in the long run.
These changes happen incrementally.

Heh, its funny when Muslims are “insulted”, anyone and everyone bends over backwards to correct this. Yet look at how these same apologists try defending the Cesar Chavez adulatiion on Easter, as “right-wing conservatives going ape-shit” over something trivial, like one twit on Twitter told me. I ask this fool if it was a muslim crying foul would he say the same thing and just…silence. Like Debbie said, I loved Legos when I was a kid but as soon as she pointed out, that Lego is anti-israel, well seems my my kid will get something like Legos but not Legos.
