Reader comment on item: Finding Allah in Unlikely Places
in response to reader comment: This is just the beginning!!

emma, B.K. et al, you are Seriously Missing the Point: These "images of Allah" found on sneakers, ice cream etc. are NOT displaying Allah's name or anything like it! You are mistaken .. THINK: Why would Nike think sales would increase with Allah's name on their "Air" sneakers??? Muslims in the ME are not a target customer, I assure you .. of Nike (even though they are a targeted market for counterfeit Nikes). Ditto for the ice cream etc.

READ the article. Think and Understand. There now, don't you feel better?

Here's the point: If you expect to be insulted you will be .. even when you are not being insulted. The self-esteem of Muslims certainly needs improvement. Here's a tip: Overthrow your dictators .. both Imams and 'secular' despots (if, indeed any truly "secular" ones still exist) .. and don't fight the people who are here to help you overthrow Islamist dictators. Believe me, you'll feel better in the morning (and all day long).
