in response to reader comment: Cause of the Muslim predicament

What do you mean by minorities in Lebanon, Egypt? have you read the history? Copts of Egypt are the original and ethnic groups since the byzantine empire, Muslims conquered Egypt and converted Christians to Islam claiming that Copts were treated badly by Byzantine.

Christians Maronites in Lebanon were majority just 30-40 years ago until Shii muslims started to settle in south Lebanon and through the civil war which lasted around 15-20 years and through continuous intimidation of Christians and through the high rate of birth of Muslims, Lebanon all of a sudden was claimed by muslims, Christians now are about 30% they used to be 80% just 30-40 years ago.

Tolerance of minorities in malysia? are you serious? I would respect somone who doesn't argue for the argument's sake. We have admitted our mistakes, why would you always have to live in denial. the first step of solving a problem is to realize that there is a problem. You seriously have a problem twisting history and twisting facts that are clear and evident today.

Peace be with you
