Top European Soccer Team Removes Christian Cross From Logo to Appease Muslims

Real Madrid bows to Islam

Real Madrid, the top sports team in Europe, recently removed the Christian cross from its logo in order to appease Muslims.
Gatestone Institute reported:

The top-ranked football team in Spain, Real Madrid, has removed a Christian cross from its official logo as a way to strengthen its fan base among Muslims in Europe and the Middle East.

According to Spain’s top sports newspaper, Marca, the change was made to “avoid any form of confusion or misinterpretation in a region where the majority of the population is Muslim.”

Real Madrid says its decision to remove the cross from its logo (see image here) is simply a cost of doing business in a globalized world. But critics say the move represents yet another erosion of European culture and tradition in the face of encroaching Islam.

The cross controversy comes as Real Madrid begins to build a $1 billion sports tourist resort in the United Arab Emirates. The foundation stone for the 50 hectare Real Madrid Resort Island was laid in the emirate of Ras al-Khaimah on March 29; the complex is scheduled to open in January 2015.

Real Madrid says its resort island will be the first theme park on an artificial island to combine tourism and sports, and it will be the first recreational tourism complex built under the Real Madrid trademark.

    When are people going to stop bowing down this animalistic breed of barbarians

    The last time the Europeans rushed to trade their freedoms for security it cost 50 million dead. Let’s hope they can regain their freedom at a lower price this time. There is little doubt that they will sell t off completely.

    I guess, in today’s world, if it’s a choice between a new sports resort and turning your back on Christ, there’s only one thing to do . . .

  • Restless

    Good grief – I had to look for about a minute before I could even find the tiny little cross in the original. By the way, aren’t Muslims (or anyone else, for that matter) being “intolerant” and “close-minded” if they’re offended by this? Oh – that’s right – only Christians can be intolerant. Never mind.

    Soccer is a commie sport anyhow. Only pussies play it. Only foreigners watch it. The mooslems can have it.

  • it shouldn’t surprise anyone. europeans have been embracing tyranny for over a hundred years. if it wasn’r for the united states and englang they would still be doing the goose step or sing the ‘international.”

    All the leftists I know are a pretty licentious bunch. I always wonder how they are going to react when the Muslims they so support and defend (while hating on Christians) are running their lives and pretty much putting an end to all their fun.

    A military board is trying to dismiss Marine Sergeant Gary Stein
    because he opposed President Obama on his Facebook page.

    “The government submitted screen grabs of Stein’s postings on
    one Facebook page he created called Armed Forces Tea Party,”
    reported USA Today.

    That’s right. A service member who defends our Constitution is being
    recommended for an “other-than-honorable discharge” for expressing
    our First Amendment right to free speech.

    That’s how they changed it, really? The equivalent of “whiting out” the cross, not bothering even to close the outline, much less substituting some other shape to top off the crown? Not only an obnoxiously prompted change, but a crappy piece of graphics work too?

    As a Christian I believe one thing, but I’m being forced to see things another way. I know we can’t co-exist peacefully with these barbarians, nobody can. There seems to be no grey zone here, it’s only black and white. It’s them verses the world and if the world doesn’t bow to them and their ways they attempt to destroy it. We are taught that God is the only judge and vengeance shall be his, but freedom is a blessing that isn’t passed along in the blood, it’s to be fought over to preserve for us and future generations to do the same! Washington, Lincoln and Reagan taught us that. Without oil they would have no voice, no money, no future… just a bunch of cavemen living in the desert.

    I would rather not live in this world if they ruled it, but I will not perish without a fight. I am sure a lot would pick life over death even in the most horrid of scenarios which to me is living under sharia law governed by the rule of islamic inbred pedophiles. Since oil is king, the money will not stop in the tune of billions to these sick people which gives them power and status. There is only one solution without God intervening in this impasse. They want nuclear weapons, when it comes down to it, I say we give it to them in the form of rockets and air bursts. Start with Iran and move over to the other radical countries. I fully back and support Israel, but when Iran goes nuclear, well so does Israel, but in the opposite way. Russia and China isn’t going to risk their people to protect the islamonazis. In the end they are alone and the sooner they meet allah, the sooner they get their 69 virgin goats and we get peace of a different kind.

    I do not support ANYone or ANYthing that bows, panders, appeases or submits to this scourge. The president is either one of them or the biggest panderer to them in the executive position I’ve ever seen. Either way he isn’t one of us, he doesn’t believe as we do and he has to be electorally defeated accordingly. Hopefully when he is out of office he can move his lovely wife and daughters to one of the islamic countries he was raised in and let them as females enjoy this culture he embraces so warmly to his heart!

    Being conquered by the forces of evil is bad, but surrendering without a fight is far worse.

  • “Real Madrid says its decision to remove the cross from its logo (see image here) is simply a cost of doing business in a globalized world. But critics say the move represents yet another erosion of European culture and tradition in the face of encroaching Islam.”

    ^this is an example of what real Islamophobia is.

    Capitulation or Appeasement?

    Disgusting!

    According to Spain’s top sports newspaper, Marca, the change was made to “avoid any form of confusion or misinterpretation in a region where the majority of the population is Muslim.”

    First, MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION IS MUSLIM.

    +++++++++++++++++

    Richard Kerbaj, seconded from the Australian to London’s Times looks today at Muslim population figures in Great Britain. He finds that in the four years 2004-08:

    The Muslim population grew by 535,000, from under 1.9 million to over 2.4 million.
    It multiplied 10 times faster than the rest of society during that period.
    The Christian population fell by more than 2 million to 42.6 million during that period.
    The largest Muslim population is in the under-4 bracket, while the largest Christian population is in the over-70s.

    Specifically, the Labour Force Survey of around 53,000 homes estimates the total number of Muslims as follows:

    2004: 1,887,000
    2005: 2,017,000
    2006: 2,142,000
    2007: 2,327,000
    2008: 2,422,000

    Specialists attribute the increase to immigration, a higher birthrate, conversions to Islam, and a growing willingness of Muslims to describe themselves as such.

    Muslim World: how Muslims will take over the world via population growth

    In case you didn’t know Islam is one of the fastest growing religions in the entire world. Some statisticians have said that for every 1 non-Muslim child born there are 8 Muslim children born in the world and that number is conservative. Others say that the rate is more like 3 to 1. Regardless of the number, think about that. The Muslims don’t have to do anything, they will rule the world by virtue of their numbers.
