What if I were to draw a blob and label it "Allah".  Would you get pissed off? The sad thing is they probably would.

Not even worth a comment

When your written language looks like chicken scratches or a child's scribbles with a crayon, you can probably find insults everywhere. So screw them, their kind strapping bombs on youngsters to blow up innocent civilians, flying airplanes into buildings to kill as many as possible, blowing up schools and all sorts of other horrible crimes in the name of their so-called religion is disgusting, so I hope they can find many more insults and hidden messages in logos because they deserve every insult possible.

@Carroll D. Hanks This is not true. Muslims have all been labeled as terrorists because of what a small group of Muslims did. Granted, they did do many horrible things like you suggested. However, most Muslims are not evil people, it's just the extremists.  Muslims have extremists, so do Christians, and pretty much every faction known to mankind. My father works in Toronto and he knows many Muslims who are very good people.  The truth is, many of these extremists only make up a very small percent of the actual group.  P.S. They probably think our language looks like chicken scratch as well.

I'm sure there are some Muslims who are good people, but not the majority. RE: Extremist Christians, when have you heard of a Christian, Jew, Hindi, Buddist or any other religion being a sucide bomber? Did you see the coverage of Muslim countries where thousands cheered after hearing about  9/11? Do you ever see Muslim leaders publically condeming the sucide bombers and asking them to stop or telling others to report anyone suspected of planning attacks? You ever hear of honor killings, killing women who dare to be seen with a man not her husband, killing girls for daring to get an education, or if a wife cheats she is murdered. Can you name a single instance of scientific accomplishment by Islam in the last 1000 years, no you cannot because there is none. Their entire existence is centered around their religion and subservience of women. When Western women enter their society they must adhere to their dress codes, yet when their women come into our society they don't comply with our codes and laws. I have the same lack of respect for all religions, they all try to force their beliefs on all of us.

Perhaps the Muslims living in western society are better than those living in the middle east.  Extremist Christians have probably never done suicide bombing but they have bombed abortion clinics and things like that.  I may have been too vague in my comment.  Not EVERY faction known to mankind has extemists. I was wrong about that part.  I don't think there is such thing as an extremist Buddihist. I have a lack of respect or all religions like you, but I do respect the people who believe in them, provided that they also respect me. Muslims do all of those things because of their religion, and it's not really their fault.  Their parents brought them up to be Muslim.  For them, there is absolutely NO deviating from the path.  It is literally impossible, so they must do these things. I'm not saying it's right. I am just saying it's not exactly their fault.  The Muslims in the western world who still do these things are inexcusable, but the ones in the middle east, while they are wrong and horrible, it's not really their decision. I just want some kind of peace.

I don't understand what they are upset about.... is it blasphemy to write the name Allah? I fail to see how this could possibly be offensive.

@Carroll - RE: "scientific accomplishment by Islam in the last 1000 years"

Actually Carroll, during Europe's Dark Ages, from about 800 to the Age of Reason, while European Christians were busy torturing any and every one who didn't believe exactly as they did in the name of their loving, merciful god, the Islamic nations were the only ones keeping literature, knowledge and the sciences alive.

@ archaeopteryx

While this was true, it only lasted a few hundred years for various reasons.
