They are pushing it a bit too far now

First they go after Man United and now they want to change Schalke's traditional fan song because it offends them. Islamists are seriously stretching beyond their reach now. These guys don't know what they are messing with.

This I write only partly tongue-in-cheek. I know it says a lot about the state of which European peoples are in, but anyone who knows the menatlity of the current population can confirm I speak the truth. People in Europe may be totally indiferent to their cultural, historical and religious heritage, mildly concerned about their political rights, but if someone touches their football team all hell breaks loose!

I'll never forget one TV documentary I watched which was dedicated to the Hillsborough disaster. Liverpool's center-forward at the time John Aldridge visited the injured fans in hospital. They asked him to talk to one comatose fan. As he stood by the bed the man woke up, and one of the first things he asked was: "Could you get me tickets for the Final?" Unbelievable, he just miracoulously escaped death and all he thought about is getting to Wembley. And he is the rule, not the exception.

If the islamist infringement with football continues, it very well could produce a monumental backlash. And if it doesn't...Well, Europe is truly a dead continent, then.
