    Question Who asked for the game to be withdrawn here ?

    I have a question about this part of an article that I read online:

    One mistake that caused catastrophic offence was a game called Kakuto Chojin, a hand to hand fighting game. The fighting went on with rhythmic chanting in the background which in reviewing the game Mr Edwards noticed appeared to be Arabic.

    "I checked with an Arabic speaker in the company who was also a Muslim about what the chant meant and it was from the Koran. He went ballistic. It was an incredible insult to Islam." He asked for the game to be withdrawn but it was issued against his advice in the United States in the belief that it would not be noticed."

    Who asked for the game to be withdrawn here ?

    Was it Mr. Edwards, or the Arabic speaker ?

    It is unclear. There are three sets of quotation marks in the passage, which means that we do not know exactly whose words are being quoted where. If the second set is a mistake, then all the words are those of Mr Edwards, and the person who asked for the game to be withdrawn was the Arabic speaker.
