Nissan caves to Saudi threats
Thereby further convincing Muslims around the world that, yes, your protests and complaints for special treatment — provided they are loud and angry enough — will always be honored. Still, Nissan, the oil-rich sheikhsÂ await apologies; and now that you’ve conceded this much, prepare to go all the way, in good dhimmi fashion. “Nissan orders Israeli ally to pull commercial,” fromÂ Japan Times, August 9:
JERUSALEM (Kyodo) Nissan Motor Co. hasÂ orderedÂ its Israeli business ally to immediately stop airingÂ a television commercialÂ depicting Arab oil barons angered at the high fuel efficiency of a Nissan car, officials of the automaker said Thursday.Â
“The commercial was produced by a local automobile distributor based on its own judgment, andÂ Nissan Motor has nothing to do with the commercial,” a Nissan spokesman in Japan said.
The commercial depicts wealthy Arab oil barons becoming so enraged at a fuel-efficient Nissan Tiida that one of them kicks the car, bangs on the hood and windshield and heaps abuse on the vehicle.
