A green or yellow strip with some arabic writing on it would look appropriate enough.

Look for anything in Arabic and copy it.

did you know the white on an islamic flag represents pease.

and iran contrary to western belief was the peace keeper of the middle east, they were threatened with sanctions from the us to stop the war with iraq. shame realy if iran was allowed to continue then iraq would be a free state and sucide attacks around the world would not have gone up. What relevence was this non bar the us requested the middle eastern states stoped using white in their flags.

back on subject i found the flag i whanted an iranian one, nice and syple and holds alot of great meanings, its more an islamic federation flag than a country flag. iraq used the same flag but instead of the central symbol had in arabic the words "God is great" (rough translation)

OK no sweat, I've edited my post as well.

I'm beginning to like this game :D



EDIT: Whoops, misunderstood you - thought you'd cut the political commentary bit out of your own post. Note to self: Read before you post.

If you're serious about keeping focussed on the game and 2015, you sure as hell have a funny way of going about it though.

On another not of hidden meanings, Jihad doesnt mean war or anything. I forgot what it actually means though, it is religious.

I grew up in Saudi Arabia. They go in holes, there are no toliets, and they have a water spray, like you have on your sinks, to wash the bum. So they don't know to sit, and they stand on what they think is the hole. We had some Afagani's install our carpet, one asked to use the bathroom, and left a Mr. Hanky on the toilet seat. Right next to his boot prints on the toilet seet. My mom was disgusted, me and my dad laughed about it it for years.
Just so you know....

Jihad means struggle. There are two Jihads, the greater Jihad and the lesser Jihad. The greater Jihad is the inner struggle to follow Islam. The lesser Jihad is the requirement to defend the faith. Currently (in the last 50 years), some of the leaders of Islam argue that defending the faith is the more important of the two. There are five pillars of Islam, some argue that the lesser Jihad is the 6th pillar of Islam.

On the right "laying down correctly"
On the left "laying down in a transgressing manner"

Thanks for the translations Brook. I may need your assistance with something later on if you don't mind...

For everyone else: As for the method of expulsion depicted on the left - I will give credit to anyone who can do that, as one who has tried (over the hole, not an actual toilet) and nearly suffered catastrophic mishap!
