Poor old Paris Hilton is the latest infidel to feel the Muslims rage. The ever so sensitive Muslims are a little upset that someone who made a home made sextape has opened a store in the Islamic holy city Mecca near to the Grand Mosque. If its alrite for Muslims to open shops on every street corner in Kafir lands then why shouldn’t a hottie like Paris open a store in a Muslim country. Maybe the Muslims think the designer gear on sale might give the local sexually discriminated against burka clad women ideas

Paris Hilton is celebrating opening up a new store in Mecca… but the move has left some locals a little unhappy
Socialite and hotel heiress Paris Hilton has sparked outrage in the Middle East by opening a new shop in the Saudi Arabian Holy city of Mecca.
Saudis took to Twitter to say Hilton, who once starred in a sex video which went viral on the internet, was ‘insulting Mecca’ – a key site for the world’s 1.2billion Muslims – by opening the branch in Mecca Mall to sell bags and accessories under her name.
They tweeted in their hundreds to attack the celebrity entrepreneur, with some saying it was an ‘affront’ to the ‘principal sanctuary’ of Islam.
Paris Hilton tweets about her new store in Mecca
One person replied to her message, in which she announced the official opening on her Twitter feed last Thursday, by saying: ‘R u kidding?’.
Another added: ‘Saudi claim there are other ways to allow for pilgrims, & if religiosity is of such importance, why is @ParisHilton being allowed a store in Mecca?’
A third person questioned Hilton’s style of products by saying: ‘That’s it? That’s why ppl are not buying it? Not coz she is a porn star who happens to be rich enough to have her own brand and open it in Mecca?’
Another tweeted: ‘How can someone who made such a video open a store in the holy city next to the Grand Mosque?’ And a further added: ‘It is not acceptable to have such a woman open her store here.’
But the 31-year-old remained undeterred by the comments and tweeted a picture of the store alongside the message: ‘Loving my beautiful new store that just opened at Mecca Mall in Saudi Arabia!’
And she later said: ‘This is the 5th store in Saudi Arabia, and store number 42 in total! So proud to keep growing my brand!”
Not all comments about the opening were negative, however, Albawaba.com reports.
One said: ‘Why the attack? This is a global brand found everywhere, whether it was in an Arab country or a European one.’
And another added: ‘Simply put, those who see this is a Western invasion of the Arab world shouldn’t be buying nor marketing their products.
‘But to reject this concept and at the same time, buy all European and Western products is completely hypocritical.’
