    A RANGE of Lego-style fighting figures -- including an al-Qaeda
    terrorist and Nazi soldiers -- has been slammed by religious leaders.

    The masked follower of 9/11 mastermind Osama Bin Laden comes with a
    rocket launcher, assault rifle and grenades. Mohammed Shaffiq, of
    Muslim organisation The Ramadhan Foundation, branded the toy
    "absolutely disgusting". The £9.50 two-inch figures are customised
    from Lego toys by makers BrickArms, who hope for a Christmas hit.

    They also include a Nazi major, bearing the chilling SS insignia, and a
    storm-trooper brandishing two grenade launchers.
    Edie Friedman, director of the Jewish Council for Racial Equality,
    said: "These distasteful toys are something we could all well do
    without, especially when there is so much tension around."

    Not like they are being mass marketed by Lego themselves but instead a company that makes modified Lego people here http://brickarms.com/

    No different than any other "action figure" in my opinion...

    Religious leaders think THEY ARE GOD and all people that do not believe the same thing they do are going to hell.

    Since the dawn of humans religions were and are being used to control the population. That's what fanaticism does. Make the followers blind and strip them of all rights to question
