Saudis Ban Commercial Use of Letter X


Because it resembles the cross.

The New York Sun reports.

The letter “X” soon may be banned in Saudi Arabia because it resembles the mother of all banned religious symbols in the oil kingdom: the cross.

The new development came with the issuing of another mind-bending fatwa, or religious edict, by the infamous Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice — the group of senior Islamic clergy that reigns supreme on all legal, civil, and governance matters in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The commission’s damning of the letter “X” came in response to a Ministry of Trade query about whether it should grant trademark protection to a Saudi businessman for a new service carrying the English name “Explorer.”..

One Feedback on "Saudis Ban Commercial Use of Letter X"


It’s suicidal for Americans to continue to believe that the Sauds are our friends! I wonder how many Americans realise that over 80% of the islamic schools inside America are wahabbi controlled! In other words, while our children are being ‘forced to accept that Islam is a religion of peace in a political correct way’ via our school system as they are taught to tolerate and trust the muslims in our midst, that on the other hand, many muslim’s children here in the states are being taught an ideology that is hell bent on destroying us and are taught that Israel doesn’t have a right to exist! God help us when this two sets of generation clash in the USA, because the public schools are teaching deception that is only going to leave our kids as deers caught in the headlights!
