Well, whatever your name is,

I find it quite amusing, that you miss the entire point of my post and revert to the gibberish ... when confronted with a question they cannot answer.

Do you understand the word Hypocrisy? Amin is crying about Jews immigrating to Israel, yet he is an immigrant?

I guess that bit you missed or didn't understand.

As to your comment that Muslims in India are better dressed? I assume you have never been to India, because if you had, you would realize the stupidity of your comment.

Muslims in India as less educated and are from a lower socio/economic bracket in Indian society, they have too many kids and spend too much time praying to earn enough money to feed them. Hence, Muslims in India tend to be dressed in rags, maybe more rags than the average Indian, but still rags.

So as to Indian being better dressed in India than the average Indian, you are just plain wrong.

I wonder why Muslims fee such a need to be treated differently? Why do you think the Muslim Identity takes precedence over say the Christian Idenity? Or the Hindu Idenity?

Why did you object to your fellow Muslim being Identified as an Indian as opposed to a Muslim? Is the label so important to you that the reality that he is an Indian by origin; so threatening to you, that you felt the need to voice your fear?

Until Muslims issue passports, I am afraid the nationality of a person takes precedence over their religious preference. ... I do have a natural revolution to Islam and the things Muslims believe and say. I may be an Islamophobe, for very good reasons, that is attitudes like yours and Amins.
