Any claim of racism or anti-Islamism is ridiculous. They look like everyone else until they go boom.
Ignore it and leave. I figured it was a device, but I take issue with the intent of that device. That smile is actually a wince, so its all instructjons guys. And I skimmed most of the other ones about half an hour ago.
The point is that the image depicts hkmvee unarmed person being intentionally crushed beneath the wheel of a military vehicle. Maybe we should all agree to only include blank, gray, accessory-less minifigs in all future MOCs so that no one mistakes our intentions. Bad guys wear black hats. If he had an RPG or something and the soldiers were mounted up, I think I would have just passed over it as a battle scene.
Its about the fact that this photo show a human being happy with the suffering and death of another one. Maybe it is an attack on an unarmed civilian. For everyone to assume that the minifig under the wheel has no weapon because one is not displayed is as silly as saying that because he appears Arab he must be a terrorist.
Woah, I totally missed the humvre of this picture.
Also, what Catsy said. The Ranger of Awesomeness: I think that it is not the fact that this picture is political, it is the fact that this picture is encouraging one side of a very controversial war. The act of creation has consequences both for the creator and the audience; the act of publicizing said creation has further consequences.
However, I do feel plenty bothered by the ignorance it has already brought out both here and on Flickr. This is what racism is like for those on the receiving end, phrased in a way to reach the largest group of readers on this blog.

As has been said, if someone posted a photo of the same scene, but with GI Joes or space police and aliens, or knights and trolls, etc there would be no such discussion.
I’m flat out embarrassed that people are bringing racism into this discussion at all. Yet it might not be very nice to view for the kids who also watch this blog. There could be multiple interpretations of this.
I fundamentally take issue with the assumption that this minifug is a terrorist. There are still soldiers deep in the suck right now and horrible things like this actually do occur—and whether you like it or not, the issue of war crimes in the ongoing conflicts is a very real leg. Either crop the picture or leave it be.

Further, assuming that the figure in a LEGO ninja headpiece is a terrorist or a combatant does not make someone a racist — it is one of two interpretive possibilities. Does being run over by American military hardware make a person a terrorist? Which, while true, has nothing to do with the question of whether or not the image was appropriate to make—or blog. BTW, awesome design and great instructions.
I know that the REAL story here is that this Humvee was in need of assistance and a friendly ninja came to help, but there was a terrible accident. No sense in bitching about it. I submit that no matter who is under the tire, what the make of the vehicle is, what the minifig is wearing: The primary issue I have with the image is its context. Beautiful MOC, wonderful instructions and generosity in making them. I thought the ninja mechanic was fixing the axle and the soldier is calling for help because the jack collapsed.
