Turkish Muslim Seeks EU Ban On Crosses

Better yet – instead of an EU ban on crosses, how about an EU ban on Muslims?

A Turkish lawyer is taking legal action against Inter Milan, the Italian football team, for wearing a strip with “Crusader-style” red crosses that he alleges is ”offensive to Muslim sensibilities”.

Baris Kaska, a lawyer in Izmir who specialises in European law, said that he had lodged a complaint in a local court against Inter Milan, which last month played the Istanbul team Fenerbahce in a Champions League match at the San Siro stadium in Milan. The Inter players wore a new strip - a white shirt with a giant red cross on it - marking the club's centenary.

Mr Kaska said he was not only seeking damages but was also appealing to Uefa to annul the match, which Inter won 3-0. “That cross only brings one thing to mind - the symbol of the Templar Knights,” he said. “It made me think immediately of the bloody days of the past. While I was watching the game I felt profound grief in my soul.” Mr Kaska told the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia that the cross symbolised “Western racist superiority over Islam”.

A couple of thoughts.

1) So your pathetic little Muslim sensibilities have been offended. Deal with it. In the free world, you have to put up with having your sensibilities offended. That is why, for example, I have to tolerate seeing dhimmified media outlets refer to Muhammad as the Prophet and putting “pbuh” after his name. That strikes me as an attempt to put your faith above mine, given that the American media never refers to Jesus as the Savior., despite the insistence of Christians that he truly is.

2) You are so concerned about the “bloody days of the past”? Why don’t you go out and do something about the bloody days of the present, when your co-religionists are waging a terrorist jihad against the civilized world. Heck, why don’t you do something about the oppression of Christians in your own country? Could it be that you want superiority for your false religion and false prophet over Christianity and Christians?

3) Sorry, but it is not racist to believe Christianity to be superior to Islam. It is the result of any amount of consideration of the fruits of those two faiths, and the state of the societies in which those two faiths dominate to see which one is superior.

4) Seeking to overturn the results of the game on the basis of the shirt? Sounds like the Muslim approach to the Middle East Peace Process – make a demand to be given what you cannot win on the ground. Bugger off.

Let's play soccer!
