    yes they existed before the sponsorship and the poster has no doubt been a life long fan, which is exactly why, if he hates muslims, that the fact a company representative (government owned and carrying the name of the country) of a muslim country now is the main sponsor of his beloved club and has its name on their kit and their stadium is called the Emirates, would annoy him a little!
    This is regardless of any financial contribution or history of how UAE got rich.

    It doesn't annoy me at all as a sponsor is insignificant. You're trying too hard

    At this point it's obvious you're a muslim sympathiser

    The one trying to hard is Goldennirvana with all his talk of 'if it wasnt for the west'.
    And no im not a muslim sympathiser, i just know a lot of muslim haters were annoyed at the sponsorship, as they were with the man city take over, but like you say to normal people it doesnt matter.

    Not gonna lie, I like certain Muslim names. Mohammed is just overdone but I like the name Aisha. Fatima is a a bad one though, any girl with a name that has the word "fat" in it is just asking to be ridiculed.

    I am very much consistent with my hatred. What others do is their business - nothing to do with me. You're not too bright.

    You brought up this particular company. If it wasn't for the West, that company wouldn't even exist. I like how there's a shut off point with this, for you. Don't wanna go back further (i.e. why that company even exists), because your beloved Muslims get exposed (like in the video I posted).

    Im not surprised. By 2025, Sharia law will more than likely take over Great Britain.

    I can only conclude from your continued rambling that the original point went completely over your head.

    They are probably unlikely to buy books with protagonist pig characters, stories which include the eating of pork or anything related to pigs in the story that paints them positively.

    I think the only exception would be if the pig is the antagonist and plays an unscrupulous character or somehow suggests the avoidance of pork.

    Yet the UAE, a Muslim country whos legal system is Sharia based, allows foreigners to consume Pork.

    Yeah this is a case where some Western institutions and individuals go way above and beyond in their need to appease , into the realm of incredulous absurdity.

    There's no ban and the guidelines aren't recent. The Oxford press just points out that if you're writing kids stories for Muslim majority countries, you'd do better if you didn't use a pig as a character or make references to sausages and pork.
    Another tabloid beat up...

    Edit:
    Their childrens books aren't going above and beyond to appease.
