Everyone is entitled to their views. However by appointing to a small minority of changes does not qualify for 'More Muslim stupidity'. This Just seems as this school is trying to eliminate segregation. If you look at the bigger picture you will see there is a lot of separation in a lot of countries, counties etc.

Islam is not trying to take over it is the mere perception of people attitude and ignorance to understand each other. If there was no race or religion you would still have the same problem as you would find some other cause to argue and believe you have lost your right to speak up and justice has not been served.

Many areas do not have facilities for Muslims but yet cater for every need if your Christian, For example as I live in White dominant area we went to view a centre to Hold a party which was next to the church. The Minister of the Church stated to me I could not enter the Church or use the Church and is it legal for me to have this Party.

In this instance I could have been offended; As the Minister had no right to ask if the party is legal. By calling a group of family & friends to have meal I did not think you needed legal permission. And as for the Church I did not even ask to view or use. However the Minister still wanted me to Use the Centre as they would have received a huge lump of cash for hiring the place. I could have caused a huge fuss stating why where those questions asked and reported a racist attack on my religion.

However by talking I realized the Minister had worked in France and certain areas or culture backgrounds required legal permission to do things etc. This mere example of a perception.

There are minority who believe to think it is ok for them to say something but yet if the shoe was on the other foot, it seems there has been injustice. All I need to say that People need to see things from a Third person view rather than a one way track and thinking they are the victim.

As for the 9/11 a lot of lives where lost including Muslim lives. Whether its religion or not I think Humanity comes first; and if people fail to see that then I guess there is not much to say.
