It's an old saying. when you don't want trouble and live in peace. Live your life according to the cultural structures of the people whose community you are sharing. You can't say you don't want trouble while still acting differently, clothing differently and deliberately.

Your choosing to be different and therefore you distinguish yourself from all others, and you still dare to claim to be wanted to be treated the same?

You are asking things that is against your own culture as well as human nature.

Blame The islam rulers of the past for the loss of the Palestinian state. As they agreeded to it when Israel was founded. The jews did not solely do this, nor the western countries.

YES we had the support from the leaders back then. Later on they got greedy and went against their own pact, trying to retake the land Israel stands on. that they did not honor there own agreements is terrible, that the Palestinian people still fights for the greed of their past leaders against a people that rightfully bought land.

You could ask your self, who is doing what wrong here?

You claim islam is peace, obedience and submission. I wonder by whom? By islamists upon those who's country they visit/live in, or vice versa?

If you're all FOR PEACE then why do the followers figth, bomb, kill inocents, etc?

This all doesn't rhyme, hope you see the light,

May peace be upon you.
