Does nobody have a problem with someone who was sent to China to represent the nation of France laying the flag on the ground? I think that's a federal crime in America. I also think he's not supposed to have shoes on when he prays.

The way of America is for Americans not for others.

Muslims only pray on land they consider holy and pure, if this person considers French flag as holy and pure.

I think American should start to wake up and see that there are many more "real" cultures around the world and its not only America.

Many things Americans do is considered offense in Asia.

Actually, it's not a federal crime to lay the flag on the ground in America. Desecration of the flag is not a crime at all, not even burning one.

So Greeniemax, before you use jdamn13's comment as an excuse for an unrelated attack on "the way of America," and to lecture us "to wake up and see that there are many more 'real' cultures around the world and its not only America," blah blah blah, the typical anti-American nonsense spouted by people who would happily move to America in a heartbeat if they could, maybe you should wake up yourself.

"Many things Americans do is considered offense in Asia"? Many things like what, freedom of speech? Gender equality? Respect for human rights? Democracy? Separation of church and state?

I could go on, but let me get to another point. This athlete is not praying on the French flag because he considers France holy ground - he's using it as a prayer mat (Muslims are not required to pray on land they consider "holy and pure," only in a clean place).
