Really, if you were honest and recognized that Islamophobia- fear of muslims- has come about because of thousands of terror attacks commited in the name of rheir religious beliefs. and even worse the deeper problem, the consent of muslims who dont speak up to condemn these impending attacks, you would be afraid of Muslims too instead of resorting to ridiculous claims of modesty and promiscuisness. Nice try.

No one cares how you carry on your lives as long as you leave everyone else alone. Everyone has a right to freedom and safety. It is the Muslims who are bent on imposing religious laws and customs on western countries that creates the hostility.

If you admit that there is a significant number of muslims who believe that their duty is to wage jihad on infidels and to take over 'dar-el-harb',

then I will admit that west tends to be promiscuous and immodest.
