My friend, Vish sent in:
The American troops in a friendly gesture decided to distribute Soccer balls to Afghan people. In the Spirit of the International presence in Afghanistan, (unlike Iraq, there is NATO presence there) the Soccer balls have flags of various countries. In the spirit of inclusion, the Saudi flag was also put on the balls and the balls were air-dropped on Khost.
Now the people are mad at the US. Why? because the Saudi flag on the balls has the ‘kalma’ on it and people don’t want to kick something with Allah’s name on it!
By the way the Saudi flag also has a naked sword on it, underlining the kalma. One can judge why an instrument of violence has to go with the name of God.
Good question that! Why does the most "Islamic" of countries in the world.. shows a naked sword under the Kalma?? If Islam is indeed "peaceful".. then shouldn’t the moderates start by agitating against the Saudi flag FIRST?
