Corporations in this day of political correctness run amuck mostly bow to the demands of Muslims whenever and wherever they ask for something. I’ll bet Nike caves to this bogus demand from Muslims because Lord knows it’ll be hell to pay if they’re called islamophobic.

Over 50,000 people have supported a Facebook campaign on the Maroc Bel Visa page, which focuses on news and videos of Moroccan culture and traditions, to remove the name of ‘Allah’ from Nike shoes.
The soles and upper sections of Nike shoes have designs in which one can discern the name of Allah, some Muslims say, accusing the company of sacrilege.
Piles of the shoes have been burnt in protest in videos posted online on social media, sparking many ironic comments about the obsessive seeking out of the four letters composing the word ‘Allah’. A female MP from the Moroccan Islamist party, the ruling PJD, has filed a written complaint with the Trade and Industry Ministry for clarification ”on the distribution and sale of shoes that offend the name of Allah”. The issue has not yet received a response but has created a stir in local markets, where the sellers of brand name and counterfeit sports shoes have come under attack. The shoes at the center of the storm are everyday Nike sports shoes with side bands and graphic designs on their soles. The company selling the shoes with the ‘swoosh’ logo were in 1997 forced to recall 800,000 shoes since the word ‘air’ in Arabicized letters bore some resemblance to the word ‘Allah’.
