Who cares if you offend anybody. People are too politically correct, worrying that they will offend someone. That way of thinking has gotten all of us in the freedom loving countries into a mess. These Muslims don't recognize anyone else's rights, and asking them to treat others with respect is pointless. As far as they are concerned, if you don't believe exactly what they believe, then you don't deserve rights. You are nothing more than a dog to them. These people will continue to disrupt our free way of life whenever possible, wherever they go.

Even in a country new to them, instead of learning the local culture and respecting it, as they would want us to respect their culture, they will find something that they don't agree with and protest until they get their way. And they usually do get their way, because we are so politically correct . Majority doesn't rule anymore. Those that whine about the things that they don't agree with rule. These people see this weakness (and it is a weakness), and they believe that it means we are weak. We are not weak. we are just tolerant. Too tolerant. The only thing these people will understand is action.

My opinion is that if these people want to come to our country (whether it is the U.S., Canada, U.K., or any other country that respects freedom), and then protest the things in our country that they don't agree with, then they don't need to be in our country. They should be given a choice - Respect our country, our culture, and our people. Accept these things as they are(or at least learn to tolerate them), and live peacefully with the rest of us, or get out. If they want our country to be like theirs, they should go back to where they came from. As long as we allow these people to do this in the name of political correctness, we will lose our culture one little bit at a time.

By the way, as I am writing this, I am watching news coverage of a foiled terrorist plot to blow up about 10 commercial flights going from London to the U.S. with liquid explosives. Of course it has caused major delays and inconvenience at almost every major airport around the world. At least they were stopped. It could have been a lot worse. I wonder what kind of people are responsible? Is it Christians? Jews? Bhudists? Hindu?...... Muslims? Oh no! Not Muslims! We can't say that! That wouldn't be politically correct.

Time to start searching all the blonde haired, blue eyed white guys in the airport with the last name Smith and Jones. Just don't bother the Muslims. You might offend them.
