Sophie,

YOU will not surrender? I am sorry, I though we were talking about consuming western products in western countries produced and sold by western companies with a primary western consumer target. I though that the problem was that a minority that comes from somewhere else has a problem with those products. And that minority, instead of turning their backs to the "offensive" products and refuse to buy them as we all do here with stuff we do not like or find offensive, actually was trying to impose their bigoted views on the rest of us.

Listen, if you find Nike shoes offensive you are free to buy Adidas or any other brand. Now, when you try to come to my house and tell me what I can and I cannot buy, the I HAVE A PROBLEM.

The real issue here is that you are finding and increasing number of westerners who will not buy your crap any longer, you will not come to our homes and tell us how to leave, we do not apologise for being free, freedom and independent thinking is our western heritage and we will never give it up, in the words of famous English man facing an equally horrendous enemy:

we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender,

So guys, get ready. We will fight to the end of it, and we will win because we are right, we are defending democracy and freedom, you will not put the burka on our rights, we will not be subjected to your prejudices and your bigotry. We are more numerous, we are stronger and we are right. WE SHALL NEVER SURRENDER.
