Muslims seething over German soccer team theme song

Muslims are seething over a German soccer team's 85-year old theme song that says Mohamed knows nothing about soccer.
The "White and Blue, How I Love You" song was written in 1924 and has been the official hymn of the club for decades, but the rising Muslim population in Europe has made it a more powerful force against anything that they consider offensive. They have staged dozens of protests, sometimes violent, concerning alleged offenses to the religion. Several people were killed two years ago in riots over a cartoon that depicted Mohammed with a bomb in his turban.

The offending line appears in the third stanza, which states:

Mohammed was a prophet who
Knew nothing of football, that much is true
But of all the colors shining bright
The ones he thought up were our royal blue and white.

The Schalke club asked a scholar to check the complaint, but even the Central Council of Muslims admitted that it would be best “to take it with humor” and not get too upset over the reference to Mohammed. “From our point of view, the song is neither blasphemy, nor does it constitute mockery of the prophet," Aiman Mazyek, the general secretary the Council of Muslims said.


Nevertheless, with three million Muslims in Germany, the soccer club has alerted German security personnel after receiving hundreds of e-mails and letters complaining about the lyrics.
And in 20 years when Muslims are the majority in Germany and other countries in Europe? We can all kiss Europe good bye.
