When it comes down to Allah or Soccer in Germany Allah will lose, Big Time!
(But don’t take my word for it… political correctness in Germany is more trouble than AIDS. Just keep in mind that this hymn is sung since Â 1924, which means the song has 85, 86 years of tradition. One would hope the Germans don’t let it go without a fight…)

German Soccer League Confronted by Muslim Protests Over Hymn
German football club Schalke and their management are busy doing damage control and public relations work after a curious threat of protests and massive outrage over the team’s club song. The Bundesliga club is getting waves of protest emails, boycott threats and petitions after the German Muslim community began venting their anger over a passage of the club’s song they feel is blasphemous.
Here is the song, translated into English as it appears on the club’s website.
Blue and White
Blue and white, how I love you
Blue and white, forever true
Blue and white is just like heaven born
Blue and white are the colours we have always worn
If we had a kingdom for us to make
It would resemble Schalke and no mistake
All the girls, oh so young and fair
Would sport a blue and white ribbon tied up in her hair
Mohammed was a prophet who
Knew nothing of football, that much is true
But of all the colours shining bright
The ones he thought up were our royal blue and white
A thousand fires in the night
Have brought us lots of pleasure and delight
A thousand friends all standing side by side
Will make sure FC Schalke will never die
In bold is the passage in question.
The boycotts have been threatened if club officials do not change the part of the song deemed insulting to the feelings of Muslim. An unnamed Schalke spokesman vowed to take the accusations seriously, saying the club plans to hire an Islam expert to investigate the blasphemous charge.
