Hey everyone, lets talk business rather than hatred for the Muslims

Hi All,

Clearly i think there are things which are even non issues in our contemporary world. The wearing of a head scarf is just one of those, according to me.

If Gabriel Crofts thinks that he will NEVER submit to the "cult" of Islam, like he choses to call it, please let him be. Just like NO arab has ever come up in the press to complain loudly about the fact that westerners put on suits instead of that attire common to the middle east (whatever it is called), i think as a person who is talking about liberty, the first thing on your mind should be whether these arabs (and muslims all around the world) dont have the right to put on the way they want, or believe is decent and right. It would even look stupid, or funny for one to complain that "look, so and so is putting on like that!"

Clearly, the way an individual or a group of individuals dresses should never bother anyone who has got things to do.
