Once again, you change the subject. I asked a simple question and no one can answer it.

I never said that Muslims weren't being treated equally in all countries. What you ignore is that Muslims are often treated the worst by their own Muslim rulers. Why are you in Britain?

All I asked was that you name ONE Muslim country where non-Muslims could count on equal treatment before the law. Surely the situation in Afghanistan should concern you. Jetto could only point to the Ottoman Empire which hasn't existed for almost a century. That neither Jetto nor you can name even one country is itself a statement on Islam.

The United States has been the most open country to immigrants including Muslims. George H. W. Bush sent American soldiers to liberate Kuwait from Iraq and Bill Clinton liberated Kosovo and Somalia and spent his two terms defending the Shiite and Kurdish populations from Saddam and working with Yasser Arafat and the Israelis on the peace process.
All we got for our efforts was a corrupt UN Oil for Food Program, bombing of our soldiers' barracks in Arabia, our embassies in Africa and finally, 9/11.
What's the point?
Nothing we do satisfies you.

Why don't you hold Muslim countries to the same standard that you hold Western countries? Why don't you demand they treat outsiders (which includes native populations who are not Muslim) the same way you want to be treated in Britain? Why don't you give non-Muslims the same protections you demand for yourselves? Your arguments might have a little more weight if you did.

For the last time: is there a single Muslim country that treats non-Muslims on an equal level with its Muslim population? I would like to know.

Just answer the question, please.
