We are there all over the world and are the fastest growing religion in the world today.. Who were the the Madrid Bombers? Who were the 7/7 bombers in London? Don't france and germany have very large Muslim populations?Aren't the Muslims the largest minority in Europe and the USA? Stop living in your cloudcuckoo land. We are there and are there to stay.

We may be as we are in Pakistan or wherever. We have beeen reduced to that by colonialism. Now its your turn to suffer us as we suffered you. Ironically you can't escape a reality. Bring in South Americans or east Europeans. We find them in the Middle East too. Many times i have tipped a Bulgarian club waitress or a Brazilian dancer in Dubai, so what aren't they human and with a stomach? Visit Dubai and take a look at what I am saying. Before Communism died, there was a diaspora into Europe by Asian who were an underclass but who are now second or third generation and citizens of countries they migrated to and they have not integrated into the European way of life. Read the monographs the Government of Netherlands has issued dealing with the subject. There is a big world outside, look at it.

The fact is, we are here and you can't do diddlysquat about it. The world belongs to us as it belongs to you and we will have our say. This is something the West has to live with after 200 years of ruling the world. You can't ban Islam in your countries and you can't afford to hurt our sensibilities or your citizens.

The Swedish Prime Minister called all the Muslim envoys to Sweden and apologised over the cartoon that was published in a Swedish newspaper where a cartoon of our Prophet was published. We are developing and it is in our countries where the billion dollar contracts are. Don't forget it. You may not know but the Saudi Arabian Government has a trillion dollars invested in US Industry and holds a trillion dollars of American treasury bonds or paper.

The other Arab states like the UAE and Kuwait also hold very large chunks of Us and Eu paper. You people bullshit us and we'll bankrupt the world economic system. Dont forget it. Then you can go around doing the jobs we may have to offer. The West needs us. We have learned to save our truths and not succumbed to secular thought and I pray we never will. Accept us for what we are. We accept you for what you are. Our ways are different and we dont care whether your ways are better or not. That was freedom for us because we stopped mimicing the West.

For all your military might you are stuck in Afghanistan and Iraq for nearly 5 years and more, without knowing how to get yourselves out and save yourselves from defeat. The Muslims broke Russia in Afghanistan and we'll break anyone who tries again. Live in peace with what you have . We dont want it and ask you to respect our belief as we respect you and yours. You have a right to live and do what you want and this is a right we hold true for ourselves also. We have seen the West for what it is.

I have travelled into Europe and the UK and he USA. We know you for what you are. Don't foget it ever. Unlike you, my religion and culture has taught me not to speak ill of others or their beliefs or their station in life. We accept it and respect the person for what he or she is. Learn it. You'll become human. Have I spoken ill of your beliefs or have I held the greatest respect for them? Have I tried to speak ill of any religion? Have I discussed any way of life and criticised it? Its not that we don't know but we are taught that it is bad manners to take advantage of people or speak about them.

God help you on the day we forget that. On that day, either you will wipe us out or we will wipe you off the face of this earth. It is not an empty statement but a fact of life. We are sick and tired of you and your preaching. Live in peace. That is the best way. Leave us with our beliefs and our ways. if not, then get ready for a war of civilisations and prove samuel Huntington's thesis.
