Dr. RJP, if those are really your initials. Muslims don't ever expect special treatments; we live by the 1st amendment in our constitution AS EVERY RELIGION DOES. There are discriminations being done to Muslims. Polls have even said that 57-59% of Americans believe Muslims are subjected to discrimination, because they are. You say how we need time off of work to pray five times a day, and we do. By your writing about Muslims speaks about your knowledge of Islam is ignorant. We all can agree people work between 8am to 4:30pm somewhere around there. But we don't pray five times between that, if you knew. Which how you wrote you didn't. The most we will do is Two times JUST TWO. Don't people who smoke get breaks AND SMOKE BREAKS. So what is the difference? So it is ok for people to go out and smoke? Destroy their health? But let the complaining begin when a Muslim wants time to pray. What is 10 minutes honestly? And you know smokers take more than 3 times of smoke breaks. Certain people have a problem or feel it is wrong for the smoker to have that. BUT they get it. The only reason it's a big deal with the Muslim to pray is because there a Muslim. BUT we get it as well. Complain all you want, while you spend all your day complaining, creating hate. I will take my break and pray to Allah I won't say I hate you, I won't say I wish you the worst. Your insulting and show no respect in anyway way calling Islam a fascist. I'm a Muslim I pray Allah shows mercy to you and forgives your words.
