Nike Submits, Will Allow Use of ‘Islam’ and ‘Muslim’ On Custom Sneakers

A man is outraged after Nike refused to customize a pair of Air Jordans with the word ‘Muslim’ or ‘Islam’.

Nabeel Kaukab, 40, of New York, penned an angry letter to the company on Facebook saying the word ‘Muslim’ doesn’t meet any of the guidelines for banned words for NikeiD.

Nike’s guidelines exclude ‘profanity’, ‘inappropriate slang’, ‘insulting or discriminatory content’, ‘content construed to incite violence’, ‘material that Nike wishes not to place on products’ and anything that ‘violates another party’s trademark or intellectual property rights’ from being written on its shoes.

Mr Kaukab wrote on his Facebook page: ‘As far as I (or any rational person) can assume, neither word is profanity, slang (appropriate or inappropriate), insulting or discriminatory (more than a billion people globally find identity in being called Muslims).

‘Considering there is no trademark or IP around just the word Islam or Muslim, by process of elimination that leaves your customers to assume only the following:

‘Either you believe the word Islam or Muslim incites violence or they are words that Nike doesn’t want to place on its products?’

Huffington Post speculates the reason Nike might not put the word ‘Muslim’ on its shoes is because of an incident involving a stylized version of the word ‘air’ on one of their shoes that accidentally resembled the word ‘Allah’ in Arabic.

Nike was forced to withdraw 38,000 pairs of shoes worldwide, issue an apology and ended up paying for a playground at an Islamic elementary school in the U.S.

Other words not allowed on NikeiD include ‘Allah,’ ‘Koran,’ ‘Jihad’ and ‘ISIS’. ‘Daesh,’ an offensive term for the terrorist group, is permitted, as is ‘Quran’.

Mr Kaukab said he’s not a religious activist and just wanted to bring attention to the discrepancy. I’m a believer in engagement.

Just fulfilling his dawah requirement.

‘I don’t think this is an issue about Nike “hating Muslims” or being discriminatory in its practices (at least I assume so).

‘I think this is an issue of how many corporations (and frankly organizations in general) just don’t get Muslims, both in the United States and abroad,’ Mr Kaukab told the Huffington Post.

A Nike spokesman said: ‘Our intention was to be culturally sensitive to placing religious Muslim references on footwear via our NikeiD customization program.

‘In an effort to do this we filtered out the words “Muslim” and “Islam”. We realize that decision was misplaced and they will be added back into the NikeiD options.’


Is Kaukub connected to CAIR?  The terror-linked organization submitted Nike to sharia law in the 1990’s.

Muslim NHL player threatens to slit the throat of opposing player

Slit the throat, behead, you decide. He also said, “You’re dead!”

via CBC Sports:

A depleted Toronto Maple Leafs forward unit soon could be minus another player.

The NHL’s hockey operations department is taking a look at Nazem Kadri’s throat-slashing gesture towards Mark Giordano after the Flames defenceman dazed Kadri with a hit in the first period of Tuesday night’s 4-3 Calgary win at the Saddledome.

“There was emotion, I couldn’t tell if it was a clean hit or not,” Kadri told reporters. “I was told it was, but it certainly didn’t feel like it. It [the throat slash] is something I don’t really remember doing. I was in and out a little bit.”

“I guess it’s going to be reviewed [by the league], but it was an emotional reaction.”

The 25-year-old Kadri was disciplined for the same gesture while playing for Canada in a game against Switzerland at the 2010 world junior hockey championship.


h/t Jihad Watch who notes:

Read his lips. Nazem Kadri is threatening to murder Mark Giordano. Certainly he was caught up in the heat of the moment and isn’t really going to kill him, but as a Muslim, his cultural frame of reference is interesting. When you grow up hearing “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (Qur’an 47:4) and that sort of thing, even if you’re not all that devout yourself, it’s just possible that it might be in the back of your mind.

ESPN bans Curt Schilling for season for tweet comparing Muslim terrorists to Nazis

ESPN wants no part of debating the math. The truth does not align with their agenda. via ESPN removes Schilling from broadcasts for remainder of season | theScore

ESPN released the following statement regarding the decision:

At all times during the course of their engagement with us, our commentators are directly linked to ESPN and are the face of our brand. We are a sports media company. Curt’s actions have not been consistent with his contractual obligations nor have they been professionally handled; they have obviously not reflected well on the company. As a result, he will not appear on ESPN through the remainder of the regular season and our Wild Card playoff game.


ESPN continues its transformation into an accredited leftwing, affirmative action outlet for the liberal establishment.

ESPN Suspends Former MLB Star For Nazi-Terrorist Tweet

via ESPN Removes Little League Broadcaster Curt Schilling For Nazi Meme.

ESPN has removed Curt Schilling from the Little League World Series broadcast after the former baseball star tweeted a meme that appeared to compare Muslims to Germans during the Nazi regime.

The tweet, which has since been removed, featured a graphic that showed Adolf Hitler next to text reading: “It’s said only 5-10% of Muslims are extremists. In 1940, only 7% of Germans were Nazis. how’d that go?”

ESPN condemned the tweet and announced Schilling would be removed from the broadcast. “Curt’s tweet was completely unacceptable, and in no way represents our company’s perspective,” ESPN said in a press release. “We made that point very strongly to Curt and have removed him from his current Little League assignment pending further consideration.”

Schilling responded with an apologetic tweet, saying it was “100% my fault.”

I understand and accept my suspension. 100% my fault. Bad choices have bad consequences and this was a bad decision in every way on my part.

Bad choice, bad decision, but the math is staggering.

 

Canada: Soccer team from ISNA Islamic high school refuses to play team with 2 girls

via EXCLUSIVE: Boys soccer team refuses to play against team with 2 girls.

A boys soccer team from ISNA Private Islamic High School refused to finish a game on Tuesday because two females were on the opposing team during a Brampton tournament.

Robert F. Hall Catholic School, in Caledon, does not have a girls team so the two females played on the senior boys team, which was approved by the Region of Peel Secondary School Athletic Association (ROPSSAA).

During halftime, the ISNA Private Islamic High School team brought the concern to the referee. Robert F. Hall Catholic School school was winning the game 3–1 at that point.

Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations, South Western Ontario Secondary Schools Athletic Association and ROPSSAA all have the same gender rule stating:

“If a sport activity is not available for a female on a girls’ team, she is eligible to participate on a boys’ team following a successful tryout.”

The girls on Robert F. Hall Catholic School team told CityNews they insisted on sitting out for the second half to allow the game to continue. The team went on to win 6-1 but both teams ended up advancing to the next round.

There is a chance the two teams could face each other again on Monday.

ROPSSAA said their rules are black and white.

But this is uncharted territory for the board so they are gathering their facts and will make a ruling on Friday about how to proceed.

Bruce Campbell of the Catholic School Board says they are disappointed and that they expect any team participating to know the rules.


The uncharted territory is called…SHARIA.

Canada: McGill Univ. rejects Muslim’s request for sharia-compliant women-only gym hours

But the school did pledge to punish staff with some Islamic dawah. via McGill rejects request for women-only gym hours | CTV Montreal News.

McGill University has rejected two students’ request to establish women-only hours at the on-campus gym.

In a news release, the school said it does not believe in segregating its services, and the fact that it is committed to making sure gym patrons are respectful toward each other were key factors in the decision.

The original request was made by law students Soumia Allalou and Raymond Grafton.

Allalou said that her initiative to dedicate three weekly one-hour women-only sessions per week was inspired by her religious beliefs as a Muslim but she said that all women would benefit.

“A couple of women messaged me and expressed that they would like to see women’s hours implemented. They feel intimidated using the weights section especially. They’ve been harassed, looked at, watched,” she has previously told CTV Montreal.

Though there are already women-only hours at the swimming pool [sic], the university said the pool is “by its nature a different environment than the gym.”

The statement goes on to explain that part of the goal of a recent renovation was to make the fitness centre “as comfortable as possible for all our clientele.”

“We encourage and will continue to encourage all our patrons to engage respectfully with one another, just as we expect all members of our community to treat each other equitably and respectfully in whatever context,” it says.

Among other ongoing measures, the school says it pledges to educate staff to make sure they “understand the needs and sensitivities of a diverse clientele.”

Aka: dawah.

McGill has amongst its graduates…a jihadi.

Michigan: Muslim immigrant convicted in soccer ref’s death gets 8-15 years in plea deal

Was a plea deal necessary with dozens of witnesses,some of whom testified? Many American lives would be saved and tragedies avoided if corrupt politicians would stop importing Muslims and allowing illegal invaders to kill, rape, rob and terrorize our fellow citizens. via Man convicted in soccer ref’s death sentenced to 8-15 years.

saad-killer

Does he look remorseful by any stretch of the imagination?

 

DETROIT – Bassel Saad, the man who pleaded guilty to manslaughter for fatally assaulting a soccer referee during a game was sentenced to 8-15 years in the Michigan Department of Corrections by Judge Thomas Cameron Friday.

This sentence agreement was filed by Saad’s attorneys and the prosecution. Saad was also instructed to pay the $9,265 restitution to the victim’s family.

“For better or for worse, you’ve come to personify all that’s wrong with many people’s belief about the escalation of violence in sports,” Cameron told Saad.

And prosecutors, judges, politicians and immigration officials have come to personify all that’s wrong with America – they aid and abet in its destruction.

Cameron told Saad that his act destroyed many lives, including those of Saad’s own family.

John Bieniewicz died July 1, 2014 after police say he was knocked unconscious during a game he officiated at Mies Park in Livonia.

A number of players testified that Saad had been issued a yellow card by Bieniewicz for a foul earlier in the match. Bieniewicz was about to issue Sadd a second one for being verbally abusive when the referee was struck.

“As he went into his pocket to pull out his red card, he had his head down, and as he came up the guy punched him, hit him kind of in the neck and chin area and then the jaw. He was out cold,” said Joe Cosenze, who was playing in the game. “Had he seen it coming he might have been able to get his arms up, but the guy took two or three steps and came right in. It was the scariest thing I’ve ever seen.”

Wait a few years, when there are millions more Muslims from the lands of jihad occupying U.S. territory. It’s safe to say, “you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”

Bieniewicz was in critical condition after the attack and died in the hospital two days later.

His widow Kris Bieniewicz gave a statement at Saad’s sentencing Friday. After addressing Saad, she held up a red card in court.

“The final thing that I want to do is I would like to serve Mr. Saad with the red card that he was entitled to,” she said.

“Before I go, the one final thing I would like to do is, I would like to serve Mr. Saad with the red card that he was entitled to,” said Kris Bieniewicz at the end of her sentencing remarks to Wayne County Circuit Judge Thomas Cameron.

Moments later, Cameron sentenced Saad to 8-15 years to prison as part of a deal in which the Dearborn man pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter. He was originally charged with second-degree murder, a tougher charge that Kris said should have stayed. “It’s murder in my eyes,” she said. “Mr. Saad murdered my husband.”

Kris Bieniewicz said she’s going to try and raise their two sons “to the best of my ability…to make my husband proud. I hope I can.” But she struggles with the loss and how to explain to her children what happened on that day in late June. She wanted a longer sentence for Saad.

“I have a 9-year-old son that says to me: ‘But mom, I thought if you kill somebody, you go to prison for the rest of your life?’ How do I explain to him that the system didn’t do the final justice it deserved?”

She talked about how much her husband loved soccer, which he officiated in amateur games. “Soccer was his passion. He died doing what he loved,” but “his death was senseless. It’s ridiculous. It makes absolutely no sense.”

The 2014 attack was not Saad’s first. In 2005, Saad had assaulted a soccer player in a separate incident.

As part of his plea deal, Saad must pay more than $9,200 in restitution. An immigrant from Lebanon, Saad also could face deportation after he serves his sentence.

A spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Khaalid Walls, said Friday that it “has not initiated remove proceedings against Mr. Saad. ICE is currently reviewing the case to determine the appropriate next steps.”

 Khaalid Walls? How about a zero tolerance policy on violence by non-citizens. One strike and you and your family are out. And their assets available for restitution to the victims.
