ISIS has banned Nike products, deeming it “haram”, or forbidden by their interpretations of Islamic law.

Nike is the goddess of victory in Greek mythology, making the victory sign haram.

ISIS follow the puritanical interpretation of Islam known as Wahhabism, the official religion in Saudi Arabia, that deems any links to pre-Islamic culture, religion or history as apostasy.

The same radical interpretation of Islam that ISIS and Saudi Arabia share also see’s women driving, social mixing and the cinemas banned in areas of their respective control.

Here’s a French/Belgian sign made from fries to IS :×468.jpg
I hope that they’ll do like the Dubya admin at banning French-fries too, it’ll be a good advertising (note that Dubya surely regretted the French bashing campain : Ford has lost all its shares in the car market here, LOL!)
Couldn’t these morons ban Vuitton and Adidas instead?
I’d prefer these suckers to advertise European companies.
