Excuse me, but your argument is faulty in the face of fact

Thanks for your reply. However, you are gnoring the fact that a MINORITY of people have been persecuted, ostracised, murdered and tortured and picked on because they were defensless and in small numbers.

How can you compare almost one and a half BILLION muslims with a few million Jews?? Technically they cannot be considered a minority and cannot be mistreated if they are the majority. Muslim immigrants are in large numbers in many western countries in the world, and they all have 100% choice to be in EU, Australia, US etc when they could choose to remain in their Muslim majority countries and live happily under SHARIA law.

Once they CHOOSE to be in western countries, the society bends over backwards to accomodate their refusal to integrate and adapt to their new countries. They are awarded monies based on discrimination lawsuits, they refuse as doctors to touch western women, they refuse as employees to handle pork, they refuse as taxi drivers to pick up customers carrying alcohol or with seeing eye dogs. How many more examples would you like?

See hate crime statistics. It is not the Muslims who have the most against them!

Most immigrants adapt to their host country and respect their laws. When Muslims use the laws of democracy and freedom to push their Islamic agenda, this results in bad feelings for them.

When Muslims are involved in hate speech in mosques, anti-western tirades, terror connected activities, murdering people in the name of their religion, this results in people not liking or accepting them.

Muslims are causing the ill will against them. If they behaved like other immigrants, they would not have the slightest problems.

Demonised? What a laugh. Try watching some Iranian or Palestinian or Syrian or Lebanese TV if you want to know who demonizes the west and Israel. How about reading their newspapers and crude disgusting cartoon caricatures of Jews and Israel, reminiscent of Nazi Germany.

And as for Israel and your 'evil' comment- you have been brainwashed and should read some history books with an open mind. The 'Palestinians' as a 'people' did not even exist until Yasser Arafat started with that after 1967 war. Before that, when the West Bank and Gaza were under Jordanian and gyptian control, NO ONE TALKED ABOUT PALESTINIANS! They are not an indigenous people. They are simply arabs who lived in he area, with their relatives in Jordan and Egypt.

Believe me, Israeli arabs thank their lucky stars every day that they live in Israel, a free and robust democratic society where they vote, have members of parliament, and have more rights and access to care and education than ANY other arab muslims in the area.

It's not enough that there are dozens of Muslim MAJORITY countries and so many Muslims in the world, you cannot allow the Jews to have one tiny strip of land that has been populated continuously by Jews for the past 3000 years, twice as long as Islam has existed. Who is biased?

If you are a convert as you say, you have done an admirable job assuming the mindset of the most anti-western and anti-Israel Muslim around.
