This is your words and they are because you have to pray god that getting visa or invitation to the muslim countries who's culturally, historically and in knowledge far, far away from your WEST countries, and I can continue for a long time. People relations and attitude to women, less or no crime (can you say same about WEST where daily somebody raped or killed, parents throw children in garbage bins, streets, prostitutes, lesbians, gays are legalized - and this is called democracy..........).

"I rather spend my money ...." Muslims DO NOT NEED YOUR MONEY............ Allah has given them to us through his blessing

"We in the West MUST also make areas in our cities which MUST be forbidden for Muslims to go " DO NOT FORGET that you in the west are DEPEND on ALLAH and after us in the EAST (oil and investments in your banks - finance)

"What 's stopping us to do that?" The two magic words on which your whole culture and west totally depending and they are OIL & MONEY from EAST

And Finally Makkah it is right prononciation of Holly city high lighted and selected by Allah in Quran. So as you guys in the west do not like when somebody say wrong your titles so we Muslims in the EAST STRONGLY REQUEST to pronounce and wright MAKKAH, not Mecca
