    Muslims demand Nike recall shoes 'with Allah on soles'

    Nike has committed “blasphemy” with its Air Max 270 shoe, charges a petition launched online by a Muslim that was signed by more than 6,000 people within hours.
    The sole of the athletic shoe features the words Air Max in a stylized script that the Muslim protesters believe resembles the Arabic script for “Allah,” the Daily Mail of London reported.
    Nike has allowed Allah’s name to be “trampled, kicked and become soiled with mud or even filth,” the petition states.
    In Islamic culture, the Daily Mail points out, showing the sole of one’s shoe is a sign of disrespect.
    “It is outrageous and appalling of Nike to allow the name of God on a shoe. This is disrespectful and extremely offensive to Muslim’s and insulting to Islam,” wrote Saiqa Noreen
    She wrote that Islam “teaches compassion, kindness and fairness towards all.”
    “We urge Nike to recall this blasphemous and offensive shoe and all products with the design logo resembling the word Allah from worldwide sales immediately.
    “We also request stricter scrutiny of products before they enter the market. I urge all Muslim’s and everyone who respects the freedom of religion to sign this petition.”
    In 1997, Nike was forced to recall thousands of pairs of Air Bakin’ sneakers, because the word “Air” written on the heel could be read as Allah in Arabic script.

    Really, isn't this how they live in their countries, in mud and filth, and have done nothing to live in peace and prosperity? Look and all the poverty and filth they brought to Europe and every place on the planet they have "migrated to". Trashing their streets, behaving like barbarians, raping and harming people.

    This is a FREE country, we can manufacture anything we want here that is within the law.

    They are also FREE to leave our country and go live somewhere else.

    They don't like our Christmas, our decorations, our Christmas songs, our Manger, too bad, go live somewhere you will be happy.

    We are free to wear whatever we want, MAGA hats, pot leaf shirts, pink hats, and "stamp" anything we want on our shoes and clothing...it is our right and our freedom to do so.

    They are an American owned company, free to design and manufacture anything they want within the law...and the Muslims or anyone else have no say in what they manufacture. Either purchase their products or do not.

    Nike is a sellout who outsources most of their jobs to other countries for slave labor wages.

    And I chose to not buy their products no matter what they put on the bottom of their shoes.

    I buy New Balance.
