I have lived in a Muslim country since I was born, Yes Muslims are treating us well only if we respect ourselves, only if we know our limits. Muslim men can marry Christian women and convert them to Islam by hook or crook, the parents of these girls can not do anything, simply because when the girl becomes Muslim she is protected by the Government under Sharia law and protected by the Majority Muslims. She is not considered a daughter of her Christian family anymore.

Lots of Christian families are losing their children this way, whether their daughters or their sons. I have mentioned this as one of the examples. There is no way you can criticize Islam or their Prophet, as a Christian you can not eat or drink in public during the month of Ramadan. Sundays are not off so you can not go to Church. Fridays are so noisy from all the loud speakers located in all over the country for 5 prayers a day calls. Muslims preach their religion by insulting other religions especially Christianity, repeating the broken record that we believe in three GODS, and the bibles are corrupted.

When Christians park their cars during Sunday masses, they have parking tickets. Muslims cars during Friday prayers are allowed to park anywhere even if they block the roads for emergencies.

Harassments for Christian uncovered girls in the streets are not tolerable; BTW all of these practices are in Quran and Sharia.

Please read the laws of the caliph when they conquered Spain, Syrian, Egypt, etc.

Yes there are moderate Muslims but only if they don't practice Islam, the moment they practice Islam, they change. I have lost lots of what used to be my close friend the moment they became religious.

I am not saying that Muslims should be treated this way in the west, on the contrary, as much pain we had and having from them as much as I believe in peaceful solutions. I believe in equality and justice for all humans regardless of their backgrounds. However, it is extremely important that the West wakes up, make sure that you go back to your believes that the West was built on. Jesus said to be loving and kind but at the same time to be wise

Middles east was lost to Muslims, lets make sure that we don't loose Europe and US.

the solution is that we have to be loving and kind but wise at the same time.

Yes I agree discrimination and violence are fuel for more violence.

Peace be with you
