Nike and Puma insult Muslims by printing the Arabic word for Allah on a shoe

Remember, the littlest things will set Muslims off, even if they are not true.  This example typifies the attitude of Muslims in finding anything the non-Muslim does insulting.  The victimization perpetuates itself through what most would consider minor mistakes, if that.

There is no insult too small for Islam.

From long-time reader "SG" who sent this as an email. I reproduce it here in it's entirity.

It is a test:::::::::: Do you love your Allah, then spread this message so much that NIKE & PUMA both companies suffer heavy losses and shut-down. As both companies made a show, which has word ALLAH written on top at back.

Think again and again & remember, this just doesn’t happen like that by mistake, it is always planned & done, by Kuffar (infidels) to carry out such an act to mentally upset torture we Muslims & when we agitate against such planned “mistakes” they call us “fundamentalists” & “Terrorists”

Let us once again agitate with such a power that these companies face historical losses & have to shut-down.

Only we Muslims can spread this message and it should reach every Muslim in this world, as only you & me & we Muslims can spread it out. Gather a little courage & spread it.

آج آپ کا امتحان ھے :::::::: اپنے اللہ سے محبت کرتے ھو تو اس میسج کو اتنا پھیلاؤ کہ نائیکی اور پیومہ دونوں کمپنیاں بند ھو جایئں۔ وہ اس لیئے کہ ان دونوں کمپنیوں نے آپ کی غیرت اور حمیت کو للکارا ھے اور ایسا جوتا بنایا ھے کہ اس کے اوپر اور پیچھے (نعوذوباللہ) اللہ کا نام لکھا ھوا ھے۔ اس بات کو ساری دنیا کے مسلمانوں تک پہنچنا چاہیئے اور آپ اور میں اور ھم مسلمان ھی دوسرے مسلمان تک یہ بات پہنچا سکتے ھیں۔ تھوڑی سی ہمت کیجیئے اور اس بات کو آگے پھیلایئے۔

If any reader knows how to read Arabic, please contact me at the email address at the top of the blog.  I am curious to know what it says, as are the other readers.

I copied the arabic text and pasted it on google translate. The words were not translated completely, but I think it has the same meaning with the english text.

It is pronounced 'Allah' which is the arabic word for God most commonly but not exclusively used by Muslims. While Muslims use this word for God regardless of what country they are in or languge they speak, it is also used by Arabic Christians when speaking about God because thats what it literally means.
