At AdBlogArabia they posted a picture of Zidane holding a Kronenbourg Beer in his hand. I guess it is an advertisement for the beer.
What stopped me to comment on the post is what has been written below the ad picture:
To begin with, I typically never blog about alcohol advertising.
Our blog is, after all, called Ad Blog Arabia.
I wrote down:
You said it yourself, it is Ad Blog Arabia, not Ad Blog Islam!
It isn just that you can find people following other religion than Islam while being Arabs, but you can also find many Arabic Muslims who are not really religious and would find some interests in Alcohol ads.

well a Muslim who drinks is not really a Muslim. i never considered zidane so long ago. i have no prob with Christians drinking orJewss drinking, its normal for them. but shame for a Muslim who drinks. anyway hope Allah open their eyes and guide them to real Islamm.
a Muslim that drinks is such a shamefull figure. Sorry to see that.
I am wondering how can people so easily judge each other? Why a Muslim who drinks is considered not to be a real Muslim while other who lies can still be a real one?
Isn’t both lying and drinking forbidden in Islam?
I have a Muslim friend who used to drink but had a good faith in his religion. He knew that he would pay for his drinking habit when he dies, but he kept his faith. Ironically he used to refuse eating pork!
Another Muslim friend of mine. He never tasted Alcohol, and would never do so, but he didn’t have a problem to have some sex (not complete) with women when he had the chance. Does that make him any more real Muslim than my other friend who used to drink? or does it make them both unreal Muslims?
A third friend of mine. A Muslim lady who doesn’t wear a veil, which is sinful in Islam. She used to go out with us (male friends) and sometime wearing some tight clothes and a bit of revealing ones (nothing drastic than what normal women wears these days in Amman). She used to refuse even touch the glass of beer I drink. Does not wearing a veil make her unreal Muslim? and not drinking make her a real one? Is she a better Muslim than my friend who drinks?
People seem to be hypocrite in nature. We tend to accept sins that are convenient for us while condemning other people for doing other mistakes that we don’t do just because we can just not make them!
