I respect your desire to convert to Islam but I cannot allow you to get away with trying to compare Muslims to Jews and make a moral equivalence between what happened to millions of Jews in WW2, and in pogroms in Russia, Poland, the Spanish Inquisition, banishment from England for 400 years, the destruction of the temples in Jerusalem and driving out the local Jews.
When you describe crescents on arm bands and such, you are making that equivalence. It is wrong. Jews have been hunted, murdered, massacred, tortured and banished for hundreds of years. Their numbers have barely survived. There are fewer than 14 million in the entire world today.

How can you compare that with 1.2 (or more) BILLION muslims who live where they please, behave as they please in western societies and any scrutiny upon them is an unfortunate result of terrorist acts and planned acts perpetrated by brothers in Islam, who commit murder and massacre in the NAME OF ISLAM.

If you have a sense of decency, you will think about this before you say such a thing.
