Religion of Soccer

Ynetnews report on the latest object of the terrorists’ scorn: soccer.

A British jihadists website has warned Muslims against being drawn in to what they described as “the new religion of soccer.”

The Saved Sect website, which calls on Muslims to work to establish an Islamic state in Britain, has attacked “football fever,” saying that soccer has “captivated the masses, dedicating their time and effort towards it.”

Comparing the allegiance of soccer fans to Islam and jihad, the organization said: “Football is the deen (religion) by which people live their lives by and are willing to die for. Their jihad is to fight against those who are arch rivals against their team. Their da’wah (call, invitation) is to publicize, defend and justify their team, inviting others to support them in this.”

“People will spend hundreds and thousands of pounds for this religion of theirs, traveling to other parts of the world in support of their team‚Ķ showing affection, supporting and caring about‚Ķ They will jump down the throats of those who so much as even dare to criticize their god rising to defend it at all costs,” the Saved Sect website said.

Claiming that soccer plants the seeds of nationalism, and is therefore part of a “colonial crusader scheme” to divide Muslims and cause them to stray from the vision of a unified Islamic identity, the website told readers: “The sad fact of the matter is that many Muslims have fallen for this new religion and they too carry the national flag.

The statement, aimed at calling on British Muslims to disassociate themselves with the World Cup in Germany, ended with a quote by Islam’s prophet, Muhammad, condemning nationalism.

I also suspect that the Jihadists despise soccer because it makes life so confusing for them. For example:

  • Arsenal (What do you mean no weapons?)
  • Cross (What do you mean no Christian infidels?)
  • Field (What do you mean no goat?)
  • Header (What do you mean no sword and blindfolded prisoner?)
  • Hook (What do you mean no Abu Hamza?)
  • Midfielder (What do you mean no goat?)
  • Offense (What do you mean no Danish cartoons?)
  • Penalty (What do you mean no execution?)
  • Penetrate (What do you mean no goat?)
  • Shielding (What do you mean no civilians?)
  • Sudden death (What do you mean no 72 virgins?)
  • Territory (What do you mean no Zionist occupiers?)
