Soccer Flap in Afghanistan

American troops decided to give Afghanistan children soccer balls in a gesture of good will. Their offering turned into a minor crisis when it was discovered the soccer balls had a picture of the Saudi Arabian flag. This flag contains Arabic script which contains the words “Allah” and the Prophet “Muhammad.” The idea of children kicking around a ball with those names offended many parents.

Isn’t it about time, the US forces hired some Muslims who could help avoid such silly episodes?
