about the nike design.. I too dont think they did it to look like the arabic word for allah.,although it looks very similar to it and that why someone post this, and some other people agreed with ( not all muslims).....

you said :"the West thinks of itself as boundaries within which national laws exist. So long as the two sides respect that the other has a different model, there can be peace. If you want to complain about a squiggle looking like "Allah" in your own country"......well canada has muslim residents too so I dont understand why should they complain about it in my country???.. and it doesnt make your opinion more right by saying muslims are arrogance and narcissism act like children...it is just stupid thing to say..

I initialy wanted to say that people dont need to be very negative, and not to insult people by words or actions...for that I said that people who hurts others in any way (word or action) should be stoped .. and it is a SHAME to use freedom as an execuse to do so.. thats what makes sense to me. by what you said you seem to believe that freedom have no limits..well then why there is rules ..why dont everybody live in total freedom..it sounds nice but if you have this total freedom then criminals,rapist and all the people with bad intentions should have it too..that what I meant by limiting freedom ONLY when it hurts more than help. it should be freedom with some limits not limits with some freedom....

I am sorry that you have this negative image about all muslims.. well am not really sorry..because it wasnt me who made you believe this way.. you just put ALL Muslims in one catagory that you negativly describe? and there is about 1 billion muslims in this world.. I dont know how did you asked all of us about each one's opinions and how will they react to such issues?

of cource there are people who happen to be muslims did bad racist things to jews, christians or others,but it wasnt islam who told them to do so.. they are criminals just like the other jewish and christian criminals who did horrible things to muslims.it happens now at all this wars,(and it happened at history when there were wars againts our people in the name of christianity.. does this make me to label all christians as terrorist?? like ur governments and media did to muslims......... I get off topic a little, but hope you gets it this time..

Submitting....
