Hi Syed,

Always a pleasure to hear from a man who chooses to live in the world's largest democracy.

The West did not ban minarets, Syed (even though the president of Turkey said minarets are your bayonets). Only little Switzerland did that. And only France banned the burka. We have minarets and women in black tents here in the USA. But blame the entire West, who needs facts? And don't say anything about the simple fact that some Islamic countries ban the building of churches (with or without steeples).

A nut with about 40 followers threatens to burn Korans. Then he doesn't do it. But blame all 300 million Americans for burning Korans anyway, Syed. Good idea. Another chance for Muslims to practice their finely honed rioting skills.

Right, why not buy from China or Russia? Good idea, Syed. Russia has only leveled a few dozen villages and cities and killed thousands of Muslim civilians in Chechnya. Unlike Americans, Russians actually shoot back at Muslims who hide behind women and children. So the primitive umma fears and respects the Russians, and your hero Achmadinejad sucks up to them. Go ahead, by some MIG's. Thousands of dead Chechen women and children prove their effectiveness.

And the Uhgars of China have it great, don't they? When the USA released some Uhgars from Guantanamo, alive, healthy and safe (after eating halal food in Guantanamo for a few years) they pleaded not to be sent back to China, saying they'd be killed as soon as they returned. Sounds like a great place for Muslims to do business with.

..one thing is sure muslims must stay in their own countries no need to settle in alien western land

Finally, we agree on something, Syed. Too bad you seem to be the only Muslim in the world who feels that way. The rest of them try anything to get to the West. Could you please talk to your Muslim brothers about that, Syed? I hope they listen.

. muslims must sell their minerals resources in their own currencies specially oil....

Do whatever you want.

....and take out all investments from western countries.

Do whatever you want.

. we have option of china and india

Right, the Army of Islam taught India who's boss in Mumbai back in November of 08, I'm sure India is perfect to do business with now.

Submitting....
