Let's pretend for a moment that this bizarre paranoid claim is true, exactly who is it aimed at? How many kafir do you think can read mutilated arabic writing backwards?

Given that the original ingredients were the coca leaf and cola nut, it seems reasonable that the drink be called coca-cola, and those names were the same before this logo existed. If there really is a message in there it seems like too much of a coincidence to me, sounds more like divine providence.

It is only fair to show there is another opinion:

In the Name of God The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
The Arab Republic of Egypt
Legal Opinion ( Ifta’a) Institute
Mufti’s Office
Thanks to God only and prayers and greetings on whom after there is no prophet.
We reviewed the request made by Mr. Mahmoud Hamdy, the Regional
Technical External Affairs Manager at the Coca-Cola Company registered under
number 431 for the year 2000.
The inquirer says:
There have recently been rumors regarding our company’s logo accusing us of
injuring the true Islamic religion. These rumors stress that reading our
company’s logo upside down (in front of a mirror) is a lessening of the status of
the Prophet, Peace Be upon Him and of the Noble Kaaba (God Forbid). The
inquirer asks if the enclosed logo injures Islam or not?
The Answer
God says in his book and he is the truest of speakers ( Koran). ( Koran). The
Prophet Peace Be Upon Him says, showing the danger of talking about a person
or society in a way that harms them or spoils the relationship between them
without proof. “ He who believes in God and the Day of Judgement, must be
generous with his neighbor, and he who believes in God and the Day of
Judgement must be generous with his guest, and he who believes in God and the
Day of Judgement must say something good or keep silent,”.
These texts from the Koran and the noble Prophet’s Sunna urge Moslems in
every age and everywhere to refer back to God’s book and his Prophet’s sunna
and the responsible officials from Islamic scientists and specialists if they
disagree about an issue. The texts urge Moslems not to spread unfair rumors,
false accusations, and untrue sayings which aim at harming peoples’ interests in
general or someone’s interest in particular at all times and at all places without
having a legal proof that they are true. This aims to shake confidence in what is
allowed and fixed and existing between people. The believer is also true in his
belief and he should thus- as a result of his belief- not say except good and not
speak except truth and not speak about something without proof. A word spoken by someone can place him in hell for 70 years as said by the Prophet, Peace be
Upon Him.
In answer to the question: Coca-Cola Egypt’s trademark- whose logo has been
attached to the request- was reviewed by legal opinion (Ifta’e) committees at the
Egyptian Ifta’e Institute. The committees were composed of the Institute’s
consultants and researchers. The trademark was also reviewed by numerous
members of the public who visited the Institute. The trademark was likewise
reviewed in an extended meeting headed by the Mufti of the Republic. This logo
was studied from all its aspects in this meeting and none of the researchers,
university professors or members of the public found any injury done the true
Islamic religion directly or indirectly. The legal rule is that things are allowed
unless there is a text disallowing it. It became clear to us that this trademark for
which a legal opinion was requested, was designed more than 114 years ago and
no one objected to it until today. The trademark was used in more than 200
Islamic and non-Islamic countries throughout the world. The trademark was
originally designed more than 114 years ago in cities in the State of Georgia in
the United States. It was designed for non-Moslems who do not know Islam’s
origins and branches. This trademark was not changed since it was designed until
now. It is written in a foreign language and not in Arabic and all this proves that
this trademark does not injure Islam or Moslems directly or indirectly because
Islam’s rules stipulate justice between all people. Those who spread these rumors
should fear God in their religion and country and fear God in all their sayings
and actions because such a rumor can harm their country and their religion
(Islam) more than it benefits it. This is because it leads to the displacement of
thousands of workers in the company and harms their families and children.
Islam totally banned harming persons’, the nation’s and peoples’ interests. The
Prophet Peace be Upon Him said: “ Do not harm yourself and do not harm
others”. Moslems now really need to protect their economy, increase their
production, protect their workers’ rights, and the strength of their unity so they
can become a power that can protect their nation from their enemies’ envy and
to reach the highest level of advancement and prosperity in ( Koran) and
( Koran).
If this is your question,
The preceding text is the answer,
And God is highest and more knowledgeable
Professor Doctor Nasser Farid Wassel
Mufti of the Arab Republic of Egypt
10/5/2000
Registered under number 39/28 A ( Masaleh)
Dated 6 Safar 1421 Hijri
May 10, 2000

Now for Clarity here is Coca Cola written in Arabic:




I do not support the drinking of Coca Cola and think we should all avoid it, but let us avoid based on factual reasons and not in playing with language and alphabet illusions.

Coca Cola is an international corporation and has stock holders from every country and franchises owned by different people in over 200 different countries.

Coca cola and Israel do not seem to be on good terms with each other.

Check this link:


http://www.snopes.com/cokelore/israel.asp

I do not know if it is still there but the only coca cola plant near Israel was the one in the West Bank of Palestine and was owned by Palestinians. At one time Coca Cola sold in Israel was imported from Iran. But I doubt if that is still true after reading this:


While attacks on firms for alleged Zionist links are often seen in the Iranian media, this time the government has become directly involved in the attacks on Coca-Cola. The daily Kayhan reported that Industries Minister Mehrabian has set a deadline for the Coke bottler in Iran, the Khoshgovar Company, to explain its ties to Coke. (The date of the deadline, however, has not been reported, prompting further speculation that the talk of boycotting Israel is little more than talk.)

Coke is caught in the middle. Critics in the United States have often lambasted Coca-Cola for doing business in Iran. Many people have asked how it can do so under the U.S. sanctions law. Coca-Cola, which is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, has explained many times that it--the Atlanta firm--does no business with Iran.

But Coke's independently-owned Irish subsidiary does provide Khoshgovar, based in Mashhad, with Coca-Cola syrup and services. Apparently, this fulfills the requirements of the sanctions law as the Treasury Department has taken no action against Coca-Cola after years of discussion of this point.

I also do not drink it. I join in with all of you in saying we should not drink it. But let us refuse to drink it for verifiable, undisputable reasons. It is bad for your health.

There are many of these spoof claims floating around the internet lately, calling for the abandonment of brands right and left for such lame illusive basis or made up stories about questionable content, telling muslims it is their duty to comply and forward to others, and... TO SWITCH TO COMPETITION!

That is basically the gist of it now. In the fierce battleground of market share , every weapon is used, including smearing the competition and illuding people that it is unacceptable to do so in order to adopt the competing brand.

Last one I got was that "Crystal" tobasco sauce was polluted with pig "oil" (when it's nothing but cayenne pepper in vinegar and salt solution). Before that Nokia was owned by Israel, and Nestle used pork gluten in their milk powder.

The Coca Cola one is really old, and it is clear they had to "cross lines" and connect dots and wipe tidbits here and there, and still coming up with a horribly disfigured shape that actually reads L Mohamad L MaKKam at most.

These rumours are so false they're funny. 'Flip the logo backwards, alter it, and it looks offensive in Arabic!'

There are even rumours about Pepsi. 'PEPSI stands for Pay Every Penny Save Israel'. Which doesn't make grammatical sense, and which is also stupid.

Muslims and non-Muslims would do well in avoiding Coke and Pepsi simply in the interests of a healthy diet.

I don't drink sodas, let alone caffeinated cola.
And I'm always amazed at how much sugar-laden sodas americans drink.

Coca Cola and Pepsi are not in competition but really in war.

Coca Cola has (or had) special team named "Kill Pepsi". Their duty is find every way, even dirty way to defeat Pepsi in market. And I guess, Pepsi has (had) similar team.

Maybe those rumors were created by those teams.

Actually, it is said that if you read it upside down or something, it reads no muhammed, no mekka.
