Where's the outrage?

Charles latest headline reads,

Muslims Offended by British Flag
Now here's the piece he cuts and pastes,

Chris Doyle, director of the Council for the Advancement of Arab-British Understanding, said Tuesday the red cross was an insensitive reminder of the Crusades.

“A lot of Muslims and Arabs view the Crusades as a bloody episode in our history,” he told CNN. “They see those campaigns as Christendom launching a brutal holy war against Islam.

”Muslim or Arab prisoners could take umbrage if staff wore a red cross badge. It’s also got associations with the far-right. Prison officers should be seen to be neutral.“

Doyle added that it was now time for England to find a new flag and a patron saint who is ”not associated with our bloody past and one we can all identify with."
Can you count how many Muslims have been offended by the cross of St. George? Neither can we. Where are these offended Muslims Charles?

It's incredibly galling coming from someone who got his panties in a twist over a crescent shaped memorial.
