Enough is Enough

A Turkish lawyer has filed a complaint to UEFA, the European football federation, after Italian club Inter Milan wore a football jersey with a symbol said to be offensive to Islam, during a game with the Turkish team Fenerbahçe. The symbol of the northern Italian city of Milan, a red cross on a white background, was on the Inter Milan shirts during the Champions League game in November which saw Fenerbahçe lose by 3 goals to zero at Milan's San Siro stadium.
Lawyer Baris Kaska said that the symbol is considered offensive in Islamic culture and asked the Turkish tribunal to sanction Inter Milan for their 'racist' action. He has asked UEFA, which organises the Champions League tournament, to cancel the three points earned by Inter Milan after its victory over Fenerbahçe.Inter Milan consciously decided not to wear the controversial shirt during their match in Istanbul, but did not think it was necessary to do the same while playing the return game in Milan.

Just how many Alpha Romeo cars have been sold in the Islamic world over recent decades,and how does one explain how and why Muslims have been strangely oblivious to the vehicles "offensive" logo? Muslims play the offended card whenever it suits them; and invariably it involves humiliating the West, who grovels at them. Enough is enough. I'm thinking this has more to do with the score of the match. Sore Losers!
