Israelis using "Women in Jilbab" urinals?

For a particularly hilarious example of how rumors start in the Muslim world, check out this blog post:
Israel is once again humiliating the Muslims by making fun of the Islamic symbols.

The Israeli mass Media recently published a photo of toilet bowls produced by a certain company, shaped in “Women In Jilbab".

This type of toilet bowl to facilitate urination, according to the Israeli mass Media are selling very well in the Israeli market.

A number of sources as cited by Albawaba, reported that the shape of the toilet bowl was purposely aimed at humiliating the Islamic symbols and the Muslims.

The first productions originated from the US and then imported by Israel. Now, toilet bowls of this shape can be commonly found in Israel.

Sorry to say, but how lowly is the attitude of the people of these two nations (Christian U.S. - Zionist Israel), they have no respect for other people’s religions. They can never stop poking fun at others. Little do they realize that their actions only reveal their immorality further. You can never find the Muslims doing likewise, the Muslims don’t insult other faiths or the lack of it thereof. We dont behave like immature or retarded people.
Of course, this urinal is poking fun at nuns, not Muslim women, and has nothing to do with Israel. And I have no idea if this really came from Albawaba or if the blogger made it up (no link was given.)

(I haven't yet seen any deadly Catholic riots over this, either.)

But truth has little to do with how bizarre rumors spread in the Islamic world, so we might be catching one in its early stages here.

In fact, this blogger may be a source for a number of rumors in the Muslim world.

He has no shortage of completely made-up posts. In at least one case, a post he wrote or pasted ended up being reproduced at Pakistan Daily two days later, about a supposed First Zionist-Christian Congress in Switzerland earlier this month. No real news source mentions this conference.
