    What if their religion does impact on others - like Israeli footballers?

    Thanks for your permission to scoff - I guarantee you I'll make good use of it.

    And they are in the wrong. I do make that distinction.

    In which case it was clearly skin colour and they were very much in the wrong to do so.

    No, I'll call him a pigfudging Jew hater, which covers it.

    Then such a person should rightly be publicly condemned for their actions/words and they would deserve all the opprobrium they receive.

    Salad didn't. Except from me - everyone else seems to be fine with it.

    It wasn't aimed at you, it was in context of what I had read so apologies if it looked like I was singling you out.

    In that particular instance I was called a bomber.

    I do think context needs to be taken on subjects like this. I don't think Scara is a racist and actually he's not stated anything incorrect in this thread due to semantics and language I believe he's always very careful when he engages in discussion to be factual. I simply cannot agree with his stance because of personal experience and the tidal wave of vitriol it allows others that are racist to justify their views and actions. But mostly, he has a rather weird obsession with Ham Salad and Islam in particular that doesn't sit right with myself and I believe others on this forum.

    I agree, wrong is wrong and the best way to improve is through education. I think where you've mentioned bigotry and prejudices is important. This thread is getting bogged down with whether calling a Muslim a pigfudger or a bomber is racist or not (that's a line I never thought I'd write). And it's also not acceptable to me that a Scottish person should feel deeply offended by stereotyped comments about their character, as you mentioned in your post. May I ask, I think you have posted previously of experiencing racism? Because of this, do you think the semantics matters when intent is there? Not trying to catch you or call you out, just curious.

    But while they
    If you are referring to him refusing to shake hands with Israeli players then I can assure you I was disgusted when I read it. Which is why although I thought he was a good player I really did not care about him joining us. I am also aware that not all muslim players behaved like him

    That's yet another similar thing of late; absolutely everything you say or write, is analyzed and interpreted in the most negative way possible.

    I think we can all agree that he's a clam. Who is a muslim, and egyptian.
    I don't like any of those. And in the same way as I don't like right wing people; none of those I've met have been very nice people.
    That's not rasists. It's having an opinion.

    And I don't refer to all Muslim players in pejorative terms (except those that insult their intelligence).

    More to the point, without them being overtly offensive, like Salad, I wouldn't even know if they were Muslim or not.

    Curious as to whether Scara would refer to Catholics as bombers.

    It's probably more appropriate to refer to them as child rapists.

    Calling someone a bomber or pig fudger should be interpreted positively how?
