"You have my thanks just for stating i am NOT muslim!!!

We love the west
We love jews
We love Christians

We are NOT anti your way of life, which is why our parents came here.

And like you said, "9 times out of 10 when Europeans talk about the 'peaceful' Muslims that they know they are basing their assumption of religious creed on skin colour and referring to somebody who happens to belong to a different faith altogether".

Thanks again"

Sounds a tad like grovelling to me. I wasn't trying to be rude using the labrador simile, don't get me wrong, I love dogs and have 3, dogs are wonderful creatures. I didn't mean it in a derogatory way, but seriously, his attitude did remind me of a labrador's eargerness to please. We actually have a word for this kind of behaviour in slang Arabic - "kasskassa" but it's very hard to translate - perhaps one of my fellow Middle Easterns may help in translating this expression?

As for my name it's Hind not "Hindy" and I'm not a he, I'm a she.
