Swiss Referee to (angry) Saudis: “I will not give up my ‘crusader’ whistle”

What a man, what a man, what a very fine man.
For taking a stand against the oh *sniff* so *sniff* infantile Saudis.

Saudi Arabia: Swiss soccer ref stands by his ‘crusader’ whistle

Riyadh, 2 April (AKI) –

massimo-busacca-swiss-referee.jpg Swiss football referee Massimo Busacca vowed he would wear a whistle with the Swiss Cross symbol on it during of the Saudi championship on Wednesday, despite anger voiced in the Kingdom at the ‘crusader’ item.

“I have respect for all religions, including Islam, but I don’t see anything offensive in this and am optimistic. I will not give up my ‘crusader’ whistle,” he told pan-Arab daily Al-Sharq al-Awsat.

Many in Saudi Arabia had called for Busacca to sport a different whistle to avoid offending Muslims. He has previously refereed several soccer matches in the Kingdom.

The Swiss Cross is Switzerland’s national flag and also forms the world famous Swiss army knife logo.

But Muslims associate the Christian symbol with the bloody medieval crusades to conquer Jerusalem and the Holy Land.

Erm..excuse don’t you mean reconquer??? Arrgh! Doesn’t anyone know history?

Waaaaaaaaaaaa! Westerners should demand that no Islamic symbols are publicly displayed in the West. They are a constant reminder of the bloody Islamic conquest. Rape, pillage, murder… yes that falls under ‘offensive’.
Massimo Busacca’s innocuous whistle re-opens old wounds. Stirring up memories that they were ground into the dust.
Pity that…

Barcelona Changes Badge to Avoid Offending Muslims

According to the Catalan newspaper La Vanguardia, the Spanish football club Barcelona is altering its famous badge in some Arab countries in order to avoid offending Muslims.

The badge, which was created in 1906, features a single vertical red line in Saudi Arabia and Algeria, due to the fact that there, the red cross represents the symbol of the brutal medieval Christian crusades against Islam.

La Vanguardia, in its Saturday edition, expressed its indignation as well as shock, asking the officials of the club to respond to the situation.

The emerging scandal comes after the problematic episode encountered by Italian champions Inter Milan in September, when they played in white shirts with a big cross on the front against the Turkish club Fenerbahce.

The Turkish media harshly criticized the Italian team, saying that they used those particular shirts in order to offend Muslim sentiments. Turkish lawyer Baris Kaska requested UEFA sanctions for Inter over charges of racist superiority of a religion. Against uppity Muslims? I am all for that! Get the ball rollin’!

Dhimmi wussy girly men. Grow a pair would ya!

Would the ‘cross’ Muslims welcome the International Committee of the Red Cross? If they stood true to form they wouldn’t.
No, they pick and choose. Fancy that.

This is just nuts!
Eighth grade students can not wear national team shirts that have the Swedish flag on them?

Why would anyone look at a national flag as xenophobic?

Time for the ‘cult of multiculturalism’ to die a traitors death.

    Please Busacca keep that whistle on, and never give it up to evil people like Suadis. People like Muslims who calls all of us (Christians and jews )pigs and monkeys deserve nothing than shutting their mouths up.

    Busacca refuses to bow down. He stands up like a real man. A wonderful quality.

    I’ve got a good idea. Let’s offend some Muslims today. It’s a really fun thing to do. It doesn’t take a lot of effort, and it always gets great results.
    Here’s my offering for the day:
    islam is a bloody cult based on the lies and deceptions of a career criminal and fraud.
