    If this forum is going to continue being racist and condoning it by acting in the same vile manner as Chelsea fans.

    Please let me know officially because I want no part of it.

    Unless you @scaramanga and or others moderators are going to actively stop this type of racist behaviour you can as I've said previously, count me out?

    Let me know?

    We should probably make an effort to try and not be like those d1ckheads at Stamford Bridge.

    @StephenH has confused a lack of respect for religion with racism.

    Nothing to see here, move along.

    It's directed at all Arabs regardless of religion.

    It's a bit of a strange one to pick for getting your knickers in a twist about.
    It's not racist, not Al bombers are Arab so it's not racist.
    Barely a day goes bye on here with jokes being made about Scots, Irish, northerners etc, blah blah blah.

    So I can say what I like about Jews without being reprimanded?

    Given I have a lack of respect for all religions?

    If you mean the religion, yes. If you mean people with Israeli heritage? No.

    So anti-semitism is fine but anti-zionism is a no go? Odd.

    Who knows but as its a slur often directed at Arabs I would tend to go towards not saying it.

    If they're saying he's an Arab therfore he's a bomber then yes it's a racial slur.
    But not all bombers are Arab, so unless you know specifically that's why they are saying that, and from I've seen you can't, then it's not racist. They could be saying because he's Muslim. That's a whole different bunch of issues.

    One man's joke is another's slur.
    Why is Salah being named called any worse than tight scot, thick Irish or even little englander?

    Seriously? There is a load of reading material out there but if you don't think racism is an issue when it's said / shouted then I don't think anything I say would change your mind.

    I agree you.

    Two wrongs and all that though, I suppose.

    I genuinely don't think anybody who regularly posts here has hate in their heart for anyone because of what race they are or what country they are from. But I reckon many of us are guilty of saying things we really shouldn't -- phucking hell, if everything I'd ever said in my life had been on the record, I think I'd have offended just about every group of people going. We can just try and be a bit nicer and more thoughtful, I know I definitely can and should do that more.

    I refuse to give up the right to call you all qunts though.

    I've been over this with Scara before. Apparently suggesting Israel has racist policies, has harmed Arabs and is stealing land day by day IS racist - but calling Mohammad Salah a child rapist/ bomber/ pig hater is all OK!

    Anti-Semitism covers both the religion and the ethnic group, so no it's not ok.
