The reason? Well, it's obvious:
The Saudi Ministry of Trade and Industry responded quickly on Sunday to a citizen complaint via Twitter about the sale of balls bearing the six-pointed star that symbolizes the flag of Israel.
Teams of of the Inspection and Control division at the Ministry confiscated the balls from the store located in Dammam.
"Activists' thanked the ministry for responding so quickly to what must apparently have been considered a threat to public mental health.
They are continuing their investigation of how such a horrendous thing could have happened.
A few years back, Muslims complained about a flag on soccer balls as well - but not the Israeli flag:
A demonstration has been held in south- east Afghanistan accusing US troops of insulting Islam after they distributed footballs bearing the name of Allah.
The balls showed the Saudi Arabian flag which features the Koranic declaration of faith.
The US military said the idea had been to give something for Afghan children to enjoy and they did not realise it would cause offence.
So kicking the Saudi flag is offensive, but kicking the Israeli flag - a flag that is routinely stepped on in Arab countries - is offensive too.
Then again, the entire sport of soccer is a Zionist plot anyway.
