To "give me a break"

quoting what you said "Hey, Ebru,

Sure, we have to show respect for you - and you have to show respect for us. That means not acting like a bunch of hooligans at the slightest hint of offence towards Islam.

The Christian Bible has invocations against idolatry. But you don't see Christians setting the world ablaze every time someone draws a cartoon of Christ - and there have been a lot.

If you want the world to take Islam seriously, you really need to grow up and develop a sense of humour."

We DO NOT act like "hooligans" as you say, at the slightest hint of offence. We do make it known that we are offended, and whats wrong with that? NOTHING. Are you saying that we don't have a freedom of speech? We do have respect for all religions, but what people like you can't seem to grasp is the fact that you need to show respect for us. I don't see that happening anytime soon, which is why you need to be shown what offends us and why.

we most certainly do not "set the world ablaze" as you say. to say politely, you're talking rubbish. You have no facts to back up what your trying to prove. Are you referring to the London bombings? How do you know that the people responsible were muslims? There is no proof. I am sick of people assuming it was decent hard working muslims like us.

Do you expect us to laugh off everything that happens to offend us? It's time you developed a sense of humour and grew up.

I don't think you should be giving off your opinion as if it is the worlds, the world does take Islam seriously, its time you do too, rather than mouthing off to every person who doesn't even want to hear your rubbish
Submitting....
