Americans unknowingly purchase toy F-16 fighter jets for children for Christmas which play the ‘Muslim Call to Prayer’ instead of jet sounds

Bjorn Thorpe snapped up the toy F-16 fighter jet from Amazon as a Christmas gift for his little three-year-old nephew. However, as the family gathered around the tree and batteries were inserted into the light-up toy, the group was shocked to hear Arabic music as opposed to the rumblings of a jet engine.

UK Express (h/t David Y)  Mr Thorpe said: “We put the batteries in and didn’t get what we expected. “It sounds like Arabic chanting, not fighter jet sounds.” “We were confused on how this would happen. “It’s kind of not the right situation to have this on a children’s toy.”

The plane is understood to have been bought from Amazon where other customers also affected by the fault have complained about the toy. One Amazon user wrote: “Very loud Middle Eastern chanting and music! It’s weird and scary! “This is a very un-American product!”
