in response to reader comment: Resistance to islamic symbols

Submitted by istanbul_chick (Turkey), Dec 10, 2009 at 04:14

At least one country has shown some courage. Not much but it's a start.

Lest any of you muslims or muslim-lovers start screaming racist or bigot you should check out the Italian tv show in which the female, Italian talk-show host was being threatened by a muslim audience member for declaring the behviour of mohammed offensive. A muslim male panel member screamed "we muslims have not demanded you remove crufixes which we find offensive!"

THAT is why islam is hated! The arrogance! As if muslims in Italy or any other non-muslim country have the right to dictate to the native populations what is offensive! Non-muslims cannot make such demands in islamic countries.

Switzerland has never been and is not a muslim country. They have every right to say what is too much islamization of their country.

muslims and muslim-lovers scream about respect. How about respecting the fact that non-muslims in non-muslims countries do not want islam in any way, shape or form in their countries? How about respecting boundaries? If you want to live in an islamic country move to an islamic country! Don't move to a non-muslim country and try to change it. As to the idiot western converts to islam how about respecting the fact that people actually hate, yes, hate, the ideology that you converted to. Respect that they don't see the beauty that you have somehow found in a big steaming pile of hooey. Just as most people do not find beauty in communism, nazism and satanism so we also do not find beauty in islam
