Some Crazy Facts About Apple’s Cube Store
And The Controversy!!
The Fifth Avenue Apple Cube Store is offensive to Muslims as reported by a Middle East Research Organization. Read the excerpt from the report,
The cube-shaped building which is being constructed in New York City, on Fifth Avenue between 58th and 59th Streets in midtown Manhattan, is clearly meant to provoke Muslims. The fact that the building resembles the Ka’ba (see picture below), is called “Apple Mecca,” is intended to be open 24 hours a day like the Ka’ba, and moreover, contains bars selling alcoholic beverages, constitutes a blatant insult to Islam. The message urges Muslims to spread this alert, in hope that “Muslims will be able to stop the project.”
Actually the bars at Apple Cube Store are “Genius bar” and “iPod bar” which might have created that misunderstanding of selling alcohol. Poor chap.
