    Given enough nutbar islamist playing football, carrying swords and daggers, the game will generate even more interest.

    Adolf Hitler said he respected Islam! Good! Nazis can join Islam without anyone realizing it’s the supremacism and anti-Semitism that attracts them! Sieg Heil Mohammed.

  • Soon this footballer may decide to prove his Islamic faith by joining some terrorist gang or engaging in terrorist acts, as has happened with others.
