John, surely it doesn't matter what nationality or religion the owner is? We live in 2013. It should be the quality of the owner and what he brings to the club that counts. Kroenke has brought nothing to AFC and seems to have little interest in "soccer". The owners of City have brought a PL title and some stability. Even Abramovich, who loves football, has brought many trophies despite the fact he almost brought just as many managers.
When given the choice between our American owner, City's Arabic owners and Chelsea's Russian owner, ours would be at the bottom of these three.
