Speak to Muslims in their Language

Reader comment on item: Don't Bring That Booze into My Taxi

Submitted by muminsalih (European Union), Oct 10, 2006 at 15:51

Muslim taxi drivers in Arabic countries never made an issue of this, why should they make it an issue when they live in the West?

When you give in to a Muslims' demand they will ask for more. What is next? Ban alcohol from the supermarket shelves? Ban it from hotels?

It is the West's so called tolerance that makes Muslims become so demanding. In their countries they just accept life as given to them.

In the UK recently, a Muslim police guard was excused from guarding the Israeli embassy. Is that an option for Muslims guarding the Israeli embassies in Amman or Cairo?

The West had Muslims for decades even in the1950s and 1960s but they never demanded so much. I do not remember seeing women with head scarves or reading about any of their never ending demands.

The Islamic language is about force and power, Muslims speak this language fluently. They do not comprehend much about democracy and tolerance, which when translated to the Islamic language they mean weakness and invites more demands and threats of violence. It is time the West speaks to Muslims in their language. Be tough.
