Why is US National Soccer Antagonizing Qatar with Pro-LGBT Crest?

The United States’ men’s national soccer/football team are proudly putting their love, tolerance, respect, inclusiveness and acceptance on full display. How, you ask? By forcefully pushing gay values onto a conservative Muslim country that wants nothing to do with them, of course.

The team has gone as far as redesigning their crest to include seven colored stripes, replacing their usual red stripes, to be used in their training facility and media center in order to show their support for the so-called “LGBTQ community” ahead of the FIFA World Cup.

According a recent Daily Mail article:

“The United States’ men’s national team have made a huge statement at the World Cup in Qatar by redesigning their crest to incorporate the rainbow flag, in a bid to show solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community.”

The USMNT’s Chief Communications Officer, Neil Buethe, stated to the Daily Mail:

“Our rainbow badge has an important and consistent role in the identity of U.S. Soccer.

As part of our approach for any match or event, we include rainbow branding to support and embrace the LGBTQ community, as well as to promote a spirit of inclusiveness and welcoming to all fans across the globe.”

What about showing “solidarity” with the Muslim country that is hosting you? This is a country where these ideas are not welcome and are rejected outright. Where is your love, respect and tolerance for their religion, beliefs, culture, customs, laws, wishes and so on? Is your love, respect and tolerance reserved only for the LGBTQ?

These people claim to be the most tolerant, respectful and inclusive of all, yet, the reality is that they refuse to tolerate anything that opposes their own beliefs and ideals. They are the biggest bigots on the face of the earth.

If you don’t abandon your beliefs, culture, laws, etc., they’ll even put a target on your back and invade your country, or impose sanctions to try and starve you all to death.

This is all despite the fact that Qatar has actually gone as far as stating that all are welcome, including people from the LGBTQ community, only that they would need to adhere to the laws of the country regarding public displays of affection. But this is simply not enough for Modern-Day Qawm Lut, as they demand not only be accepted, but praised and celebrated for their “identity.”

Hopefully the American team will face some backlash regarding their new rainbow branding. The good news is that they will not be featuring their “special” rainbow crests during matches.

Qatar: How the World Cup Is Being Used to Spread Liberalism to Muslims

By Mufti Abdullah Moolla -October 19, 2022

Qatar will be hosting the FIFA World Cup from 20 November to 18 December 2022.

With all the glamour with which sport is promoted, there also comes a trail of immorality and spiritual corruption. For Muslims, sport stands for nothing and often brings disaster and devastation. In this article, we are not focusing on stats and measures of the perceived ‘benefits’ and profits that accrue from football tournaments, but rather the shocking circumstances and immoral conditions in which such tournaments are held.

When the rights to host the World Cup were granted to Qatar, from the outset, there were accusations of bribery and corruption. These accusations were substantiated later on, but Qatar did not lose hosting rights.

As time passed since Qatar ‘clinched’ the bid to host, more accusations were hurled at the nation. Issues of climate change, human rights, progress, and advancement were prominent in world media. But Qatar dealt with these charges. They showed the world their high levels of “forward thinking” and tolerance in responding to these claims. But now, that tolerance has grown to accept every sin in the book (and out of the book) for the sake of the tournament.

Qatar’s World Cup chief recently told Sky News that:

  • Gay fans will be welcome to display affection and rainbow flags;
  • FIFA will have to decide on captains wearing “One Love” armbands while cautioning against “political messages” by teams;
  • Areas will be set up for drunk supporters to sober up; and

Does it not strike at the īmān and nature of a common Muslim to see such things unfold in a Muslim country? Did a Muslim country just wake up and say, well, today we are embracing alcohol and gay rights? Or, is sport being used as a tool to place within Muslims the capacity to embrace all evil under the guise of advancement?

We have learnt that as things stand, Muslims, like those in Qatar, and elsewhere are willing to bend over backwards to embrace modernity, casting aside every ounce of self-respect and ghayrah for the most treasured possessions of īmān and Islām.

Why did Qatar capitulate to gay fans and rainbow flags? Did they capitulate now, or, did they willfully employ a strategy to show that they ‘capitulated’, whilst they had secretly embraced and accepted these things when they first put their bid in?

‘We had to, for the sake of the tournament’ can never be accepted as a pretext for embracing alcohol and gay rights under any circumstances.

‘But Muslim players are playing, we support them,’ is another façade. Muslim players across all sports are propped up from time to time to deceive the unwary and ignorant into embracing the evil actions and ‘progressive’ image that the so-called Muslim player displays.

The capitulation of Qatar also goes to show how dogmatic the ‘progressive’ and ‘advanced’ nations are in terms of abusing others into accepting their ways and ideas. Liberals spread immorality without fear or favor, whilst Muslim fans harp on about the achievements of the players? How does this even make sense? Who defines ‘progressive’ and ‘advanced’? The repetition of these words shows us that ‘progressive’ and ‘advanced’ are being applied selectively, because when Muslims choose to progress within the parameters of Islām, they suddenly become ‘backward.’

In what way does hosting a football tournament help the Muslims in various parts of the world, whose basic human rights are being trampled upon all the time?

We place our trust in Allāh Ta’ālā and our hope in His endless mercy to save the entire Muslim Ummah from the trap of the World Cup, and may He grant one and all the ability to see through the filth they are being fed, and the ability to refrain from everything associated with such ‘progressiveness.’
