Jihad On The 49'ers?

Well... on soccer, anyway.

(Hat tip to Tsar)

[[ Ulema in Saudia Arabia have issued a fatwa (religious decree) declaring football an un-Islamic sport, and have urged the youth to quit it immediately, BBC radio reported on Saturday.

According to the report, the clerics urged the youth to indulge in jihad and other constructive activities that could help the Muslim ummah, the radio reported. The ulema argued that football wastes a lot of time and the participants wear shorts, which they said was an un-Islamic dress, the radio reported.

Following the decree, some players of the famous Taif Football Club have quit the game, the report added.

So, now they're taking away one of the only things young muslims have outside of the suffocating dogma of their cult. I guess the "clerics" saw the young ones having fun and decided that the evil West could use that against them.

Love that religion of peace...

This latest fatwa is going to go over like a turd in a punchbowl with the Iranians and Pakis, who dearly love their soccer.

Yeah, I was really tired when I posted that to you last night. I forgot the Euros call soccer "football." I should have been clued in by the description of players "wearing shorts." The only folks that wear those in the NFL are on the sidelines providing titillation for the cameramen...

Well, we know for sure that "titillation" is out of the question for the moooslims.
