I don't feel guilty for the things I said

Dear Mr. Harrak,

you said that you "enjoy" my e-mails: I am glad to provide cheap entertainment for you and your buddies. You also said that I "do not reason at all" as if it was possible to start a discussions with Muslims. Then you describe my comments as "aggressive" as if the Muslims were not aggressive. The truth is, Mr. Harrak, that I don't feel guilty for the things I said. I don't feel guilty for attacking yourself and Amir. Although my comments might be aggressive or rude, you certainly enjoy your human rights in the country where you live; you enjoy freedom of religion and the right to participate in civil society. You received an education in the West and you have an income in the West. I don't feel guilty for provoking you, Mr. Harrak. You and Mr. Amir certainly have more rights than the Christians who got killed in Nigeria......
