"I think this comment refers to you. because if you think that only Muslims is the problem then you need help."

I don't need any help and many people are realizing islam and muslims are the problem. After all, beside your "tribalistic" justification, why christians in muslim lands live as second class human beings? You say islam is perfect, yet your religion wasn't able to change the heart of people and tell them to treat non muslims humanely. All this failed to happen in 50+ muslim majority countries.

There is nothing you can say that can justify the sentence above.

"Now as a Muslim and believer in all faiths that came before Islam i respect all and its people. But do they respect me?"

If we had just to reciprocate the hatred spread by muslims for the past 1400 years I'd say it's a bit too much to ask to be respected. Just the fact that you can practice your faith in USA is so much more than what happens to minorities in any muslim majority country. Can I say you are a little dense in not getting this concept?

"I laugh because all America do show is negative things that Muslims do. "

it's not our problem that muslims do a lot more negative stuff than any other ethnicity.

In my country the first foreign community in jail is moroccan, while the first community present is Philipino. What do you get from this information? that Philipinos are hard working people, Moroccan muslims are into drug trading, robbery etc.

We have chinese communities, you never hear them complaining about our christmas or our habits, they simply don't celebrate or don't engage in them if they don't like them. It's always muslims complaining about our christian festivities, our food that's not halal, our women that are not covered.

What can you do? it's just the way it is. Muslims are by far the kind of people who asks for more without giving back anything, and this is getting the rest of population very upset.

It's not USA TV station doing the nasty job, it's the muslims themselves. YOU think you are so special that you need to receive special rights above anybody. Well, hear this, It's all going to backfire on you sooner or later.

" This crushes my heart but who am i? One Muslim can't make it change but millions more can."

no muslim is doing anything. Look at the brave monks in myanmar getting killed for democracy, freedom and human rights. This is power, this is courage. You will never see muslims doing it. All you can do is complain and wait for someone (the west) to take care of your problems to be able to blame the infidels again. No wonder why the real religion of peace is buddhism and NOT islam

"But judge each individual Muslim on hers or her actions."

all the muslims I had the displeasure to meet (this forum is an example) have been suprematists, arrogants, all bound on offending any other religion. So nothing new here, just what I expected. In my daily life I never met a muslim saying "thank you" (I guess thanking an infidel is against your religion) or being nice and greet other people. All I got is that you are a very arrogant bunch of people that we gain nothing from.

"Because G-d gave man free well and it you choose to do as you please then so be it"

if you wanted to say free will then you are wrong. Every man is born free is what christianity told us. You muslims are submitted to your cult, islam means submission, so no muslim person is born free. You are all born submitted without choice (since you cannot convert).

I guess your "personal interpretation" is not correct. I guess if you went to say those stuff in iraq to some ulema you would get shot instantly. Islam is not about free will. It's about submission. Someone submitted is not free by definition.
