Perpetually Offended: Muslims Complain About Cross Symbol In Swiss Airline Adverts


By Cheradenine Zakalwe – “I posted last year about how some Swiss companies were removing the Swiss flag from their logos in order to appease Muslims. Some Islamic apologists claimed the companies were reacting to a problem that was entirely imaginary and, in reality, Muslims were not so primitive that they would be offended by the mere display of another religion’s symbols. Now we see that, in fact, they are.

The last advertising campaign of the Swiss transporter has not gone unnoticed. On large-format advertising hoards in the German-speaking part of Switzerland, the Swiss flag appears accompanied by the slogan “Kreuz ist Trumpf”. This means literally “The cross is an advantage”, or “clubs are trumps” for aficionados of jass, the traditional card game. A double meaning that not everyone has been able to grasp.

The Muslims of Switzerland have reacted sharply to this image. On some forums, the internet users are indignant about the fact that Swiss is thus making reference to the “cross” and not the “Swiss cross”, reports “Der Sonntag”. The vehemence of the internet users is not a surprise to the Turkish journalist Cemil Baysal. Not long after the emotion caused in the Muslim world by the film “Innocence of Muslims”, “many Muslims feel this slogan is a provocation and an attack against Islam”.

Swiss, for its part, has given an assurance that its campaign contains no religious or political message.

Flashback: Airlines With Crosses Not Allowed Over Saudi Arabia – “Swiss International Air Lines is not allowed to fly over Mecca because their planes are painted with the white Swiss cross. The airline no longer flies its cross-emblazoned planes into the country of Saudi Arabia, but the spiritual leaders of Saudi Arabia cannot ban the cross of Jesus imprinted on the hearts of Muslims who accept Jesus as Lord!” Source – uMarko.

Flashback: Egyptian Sheikh: Chevrolet’s Logo Resembles Christian Cross, Issues Fatwa Forbidding Muslims from Buying or Driving Chevys – “If the ‘Cross of Chevrolet’ had anything to do with Christianity, then General Motors wouldn’t have needed to be saved by the Federal Government. After all, the Cross is the only thing that can bail us out. No word yet on whether or not a fatwa will be issued against Mercedes-Benz for being pro-Trinitarian. In the meantime, maybe the Sheikh will recommend a Lamborghini for all Muslims. He obviously has no problem with that logo …” Read more.

    I’m getting pretty sick and tired of these whinging infantile gits called muslims. They all need a good slap across the chops and remedial training in proper behaviour, courtesy and respect.

    They couldn’t receive remedial training, they say they’re all descendants of Ishmael, ” a wild ass of a man”.

    It appears some ( if not most Muslims ) are WEAK in their “faith”. If they are so scared of a symbol then Allah should be laughing at them. They should take their holy crescents and eclipse them ( stick them where the sun doesn’t shine ).
