Nissan Ad Has Arabs Calling for Boycott

Check out the commercial as it aired in Israel. LOL

Nissan Ad Has Arabs Calling for Boycott

Fox News

The Arab world is fighting mad about a new commercial being aired in Israel by Nissan.

In the commercial, Nissan brags about how fuel efficient their new car the Tiida is by showing how mad it is making Arab Shieks, who start to attack the car and complain about how Nissan is costing them millions of dollars.

The ad is supposed to be funny, but it plays on old Arab stereotypes. In the commercial, the actors playing the Arab Shieks say the car has "destroyed my home," and they direct hatred toward the car saying, "May hawks poke at you day and night," and "May the sun melt you and God take you."

As the ad comes to a close, the announcer declares "when you consume the least fuel, it's obvious they won't like you in the oil emirates."

The Saudi regime, along with other oil-producing Gulf states, is threatening to boycott Nissan -- which is collaborating on the development of the Project Better Place electric car system in Israel -- if the automaker doesn't apologize.


Wild Thing's comment............

“The Saudi regime, along with other oil-producing Gulf states, is threatening to boycott Nissan”


I thought their favorite was a Mercedes. And the Nissan Sunny/Sentra is popular for car bombs.

Good for Nissan. This just proves once again that muslims have no sense of humor and will attack anything and everyone that makes a joke about them.

I just could not resist !

Hey, last November my wife rolled our XTerra fifty-feet down an embankment three weeks after we bought it. Too bad she didn't have King Faisal with her. He would have gone out the sun roof along with a fortune in CD's. Damn, another missed opportunity to squash a petro-punk.

I hope your wife is okay, Rhod. Goodness sakes, how sad.
Faisal has no reason to go all apeshit over a commercial for an energy efficient vehicle. Like he needs any more money. We the people who pay him, need a break from all this high priced oil.
But in actuality, is it opec or the dummys who pulled a fast one on all of us to get us on the fast track to alternative fuels because of global warming? I noticed how now that summer is nearly over, the price of crude oil and gas is going down. We got goudged big time! And I really don't know if it was big oil or the dummys.
But again, Rhod, give your wife my understanding and love. I know how sore one can be after a bad accident. I've been there.

Thank you, Lynn. Like the pig I am, I used the accident as a means to go after the Arabs who are going after Nissan.

I say screw 'em. That sludge under the sand gives them power to assert their view of the world, and the leverage to dignify a culture that should have disappeared a millenium ago.

There are two reasons they're able to perpetuate the lie that Islamic despotisms are respectable members of the modern world. Western technology, which includes Nissan and the means to oil extraction, and the state of Western thinking on Western culture itself.

This balance won't last forever, because the energy exchanges aren't permanent. Their days are numbered. And when the French see their investment in Nissan threatened, all hell will break loose (heh).

Yes this is true Rhod, but... if this country had a leader with one brain, we would be looking for our own oil and become energy independant within a few years, instead of buying it from our 'FRIENDS' the Saudi's.

Yesterday, 5 RINO republicans, led by the Chief Asshole RINO, Lindsey Graham, have made a deal with the democrats, that would almost limit our offshore drilling capability. Basically, the bill would limit drilling to 4 coastal states the drilling would be left up to the state to decide whether to drill or not, BEYOND the 50 mile limit, if there is oil closer to shore forget it we can't get it. The democrats are planning on Huge windfall profits tax on all Oil companies, which of course will drive the price up at the pump, the democrats are planning on $7-8 dollars per gallon. If anyone thinks its bad now wait a few months until winter thats when we will see a huge increases in usage and the price will be disastrous.

Nuclear Energy is out of the question and off the table. Saxby Chambliss one of the RINO's involved in this treasonous scheme, phoned Rush, and tried to explain what the bill was, he as a Senator has not EVEN read the bill and hasn't a clue what is in it yet this pantywaste is supporting the bill.

In the meantime the House Republicans are going to the wall to get an up or down vote, drilling, while their fellow travelers in the Senate are cutting them off at the knees.

So thanks to Linsey Graham, we will not become energy independant, the price of gas will again skyrocket, heating oil is going to be astromical tihs season and in the future, and Harry Reid will paint a rosy picture of how we will become energy independant and off oil only probem is alternatives are so distant in the future that we are going to give up everything just to fuel are current mode of transportation, all because they have decided that 'Big OIL' is the enemy..

If we do not do something, the next 6 months will be the last of freedom in this country. Our own leaders are flushing us down the toilette and more than likely will be voted back into office to continue this practice of their race toward socialism.

It is not the fault of OPEC, it is OUR OWN FAULT, we have gutless leaders with no spine and no balls to get the job done, they are intimidated and pain off by SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS, We are at war with a ruthless enemy yet not one leader in Washington seems to be aware of this. We have the best Army ever fielded in history, the best equipped, best fed and not the stomach to use them. The bad news is the enemy knows this and this is how they will win.

Whatever is going to happen in Georgia we should pull out now and avoid another embarrassing defeatist Senate screwing our troops and telling us we can't win.

If we can't even find leaders that have confidence in our own Military then why waste their lives in the first place.

Khruschev was right, 'we will bury you from within.'

Mark is on target. Our modern, mass-media democracy seems to have levelled our legislators, so that meatheads like Graham and Chambliss are even possible. And McCain is learning something new about lying down with dogs.

I still want to stand behind the President, but his craven friendship with the Saudis is nearly the last straw. The Saudis are a contagion.

Posted by: Rhod at August 9, 2008 09:45 AM

Pres. Bush can hold hands with the Saudis all he wants - they are not our friends.
I was so disgusted with the new Gang of 10 deal...when will the Republicans learn that compromising with the Democrats always means we get screwed??

For fun - did you check out the comments at the YouTube page? 'I hate, therefore, I am.'

We have had since 1973 to whip this energy problem. The few politicians that have stood up for real energy independence have been shouted down by vocal special interest groups. And of course the (un)wise and (un)informed American electorate has been lead by the MSM to vote for the pie-in-the-sky politicians and their easy schemes.

When the Repubs had all of Congress and the White House right after 9-11, was our best shot ever to reach energy independence. They blew it. We would now, 7 years later, be reaching that independence. We might be today bitching about $1.50 a gal gas. The America hating Arabs are laughing as they are buying up America with our own money and infiltrating their corps of future Sharia law enforcers.

Keep buying ammo. Your kids will need it.

The real issue here is the mentality of Arabs and Muslims when it comes to cartoons, humorous ads, and anything else that they don't like. They are NUTS and react like NUTS. The same goes for people with Arab names like B. Hussein Obama who goes nuts and can't handle humorous criticism, cartoons, or ads against him.

Posted by: Les at August 9, 2008 08:05 PM

Rhod, that is so scary what happened to your wife. I can't imagine what that would feel like to have that happen and the fear that would stay with a person afterward.

I know what you mean about King Faisal though LOL that would be site to see especially having him on the hood of the vehicle.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 9, 2008 11:20 PM

Lynn, I agree, King Faisal can kiss my non enviro butt. I am fed up with giving these people our money when we could be getting our own oil right here at home.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 9, 2008 11:23 PM

Rhod.........."That sludge under the sand gives them power to assert their view of the world, and the leverage to dignify a culture"........ditto that and I am sick of it and them.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 9, 2008 11:28 PM

Mark, I agree sooooo much.

I heard about those 5 Republicans and was and still am so angry. Lindsey Graham and the rest of them shooting down by their actions what the others had done that was so good as a step in the right direction.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 9, 2008 11:31 PM

Cheryl, LOL yes tey can cry me a river too. OH how I wish we would drill and just tell the left to shut up and go sit down in the corner.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 9, 2008 11:33 PM

Rhod, yes that hand holding was so disgusting. augh. We wouldn't have to play kissy face with these arabs if we would do what needs to be done with our own oil right here and screw the arabs.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 9, 2008 11:36 PM

Yankeemom, LOL oh mygosh......LMAO I just checked it out. They are really ticked off.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 9, 2008 11:37 PM

Tom, yes the Arabs are laughing at us.
We had such a great opportunity and so many years to do what had to be done.

Posted by: Wild Thing at August 9, 2008 11:40 PM

Les, that's for sure and one thing about Americans is we have a sense of humor, we are still able to laugh at ourselves.
Arab camel breath's have no sense of humor. If I had been one of those Arabs and all the money they have from the USA for their oil I would have just sat back and laughed.
