We British Muslim lads, born in England of Pakistani parents, are football fans and our team is Manchester united.
We’d like to support England at football and other sports, but we can’t because the flag is unacceptable to Muslims.
No Muslim home in our area displayed the England flag during the world cup. That flag represents Christianity: it’s the anti-Muslim flag of the Templars and the Crusaders.
The vast majority of Muslims and, we believe, Englishmen in general would support changing the flag from its present style to the three lions.
That would be a flag which all elements of the community would be willing to support.
We don’t wish to be ‘radicalized’ and we would never become terrorists, but the continual use of an anti-Islamic flag increases our sympathy for, and understanding of, our fellow Muslims who believe direct action is the only way to make our voices heard.

Hvilken vederstyggelighed må så ikke Dannebrog være for rettroende muslimer: Et kristent symbol, som ovenikøbet faldt ned fra himlen.
