"Muslims do not expect the constitution to suit the religion of Islam, but they expect to be respected and have every reason to do so."

I wish is was that simple. But no. Some of (maybe all) Muslims not only want to change the constitutions, but overthrow them completely in effort to make Islam dominate the world. That is far from democratic, and they have no reason to expect to be respected for contemplating such atrocities.

"One can't judge a book by it's cover."

That's right, so perhaps you should read some passages from the Koran. Even if the cover is green some of the text inside may be blood stained.

"Immigrants have their own reasons for leaving their countries and it is not for everyone else to decide if that is reason enough, but mostly it's due to war,"

According to the UN, about 70 % of world's refugees are so called economic refugees. They want to imrove their living conditions (which by all means are understandable, but not covered by the refuge institution) - not fleeing from war.

"and thats understable because who could endure to live a whole lifetime being afraid and not knowing if you would open your eyes the next day."

The same goes for others. Immigration means deteroation. Suggest you read some stastics, Immigration increases our crime rates, unemployment rates, state budget deficits and tax rates. No wonder we gets afraid of what may happen to us - getting robbed, beat up, raped and/or killed - becoming unemployed, getting poorer due to higher taxes along with higher costs of living...

And as if this weren't enough, we have to live with the treath of "jihad" from some Islamists.

"But i have noticed that muslims have become scapegoats in almost all western countries."

I don't think the term "scapegoat" is appropriate here.

"EVERYTIME something happens and there is a muslim involved you hear about on the news and read about it in the paper."

Does that mean that you'd prefer it if they did not report on crimes comitted by Muslims, or someting else that have happened with Muslim(s) involved? Why? Isn't that kind of "racist"?

"The media is trying to demonize all muslims."

Correction: The unsavory (admitted loosely knitted) group that in my view are destroying civilation, the media, governments, socialists, islamists and feminists - is trying to demonize all Westerners, Europeans, Viking ancestors, men, Christians, Conservatives, heterosexuals, working class and Jews.

They are allowed to do so, but what's making me sad and angry is that they seem to succeed!

"Everybody expects to be treated with respect, even if they are "different". Do you want people to treat you differently because you are stupid? Do you want people to keep reminding you that you are stupid? Of course not. You want people to respect and treat you like a human being."

And we're tired of not being treated with respect due to the fact that we are Westerners, Europeans, Viking ancestors, men, Christians, heterosexuals, working class, Jews and/or non-Socialists.
