in response to reader comment: ...people!!

[quote]"It don't matter whatever you think about us (Muslims) nor about our religion"[/quote]

...Every muslim person I know (I live in the Netherlands in the centre of Amsterdam so I know plenty!) is almost immediately offended if you even think about asking something about the subject of religion. Like this is 'the normal response' to such questions?!? Whoever is a bit critical towards the muslim-community is 'a racist' or a 'Bush-follower'...There is no room for any debate! A debate?!? Don't make me laugh please...Remember:

- The pope (who just 'quoted' a historical figure in a lousy speech?)
- The danish cartoon (people died because of this?)

I experienced one time when 'a muslim' I have known almost all my life (school and all) looked amazingly angry at me when I asked what 'the guy with the beard in his mosque had to say about 9-11'. I was 'a Bush-lover!' and probably even a racist...?!?! I have never talked to him since. ...Maybe I shouldn't have said: 'That guy with the beard'...So: 'By doing so I offended him..?!' How sensitive can one be?

You talk of 'us muslims'...It's always 'us', why are 'all muslim countries far behind in almost everything' I consider 'normal'? There is no 'us'! That's only in your mind...Some Mullah maybe? Wrong friends?

Why is 'us' always in trouble? And following: What makes you proud to call yourself a muslim at this moment in time? I guess we are born in the same period of time and at least as long as I am around on this messed up earth I see conflicts when it involves the 'muslim-religion'. So what the pope said totally didn't sound that strange to my ears. Is this all to blame on 'the jews/globalization'? Or on the U.S.A.? Why are you proud to be a 'muslim', on which basis is this founded (seriously)?

In the Netherlands 'muslims' are generally considered: 'Parasites who are on welfare, that only complain about being discriminated and about all they don't have...But because in the 70's their family cleaned our toilets or so they feel like 'we' still have to be grateful...So...'They' are left to the naive 'left-politicians' that keep them in welfare because they are wankers and don't dare to tell those 'muslims' it's normal to work for a living (or to speak the language of the country you lived in for 40 years!). In the meantime mosques for those same losers are rising at the dutch horizon paid for with money from some wealthy oil guy from some arabic country of 'the axis of evil', because the future visitors themselves are losers on welfare !

This 'general negative idea' isn't there because of 9-11, or whatever other historical event, it's there because of facts & figures and in my case a lot of personal experiences. From all 'muslims' I know maybe 2 or 3 can be called 'succesful' or at least 'no problem'. And please, I really 'know' a lot of them, I will even be invited for the party on the last day of the going ramadan with a friend of mine. His parents think I'm funny...They are also.

And to make things a bit clear, I really wonder...All 'muslims' say no-one will hire them because they are or 'look like a muslim'. Well maybe, but I think it is because a lot will not shake the hand of a woman on a job interview (?!?!?!) and in the Netherlands a lot of women are in charge. Or it's because when they do get a position somewhere they always seem to be unsatisfied. "There is no respect for my religion" and all that crap again. If I have a company why would I hire a 'muslim'? Because I must create 'a room in which they can pray to Allah 5x a day', Because it's always so nice when it is christmas? Or just because I have to reach a minimum of 'losers' at my company so 'left-politicians' see their plan work?

I guess it is the last...But because my disliking goes beyond, I decided to never ever start my own company!

You stated: "at least, at this moment we are not helping kamikaze to destroy themselves , while you are voting for criminals) !!"


May I remind you of the falsified elections in the U.S.A.?! Your knowledge only seems to look one way and what's in the Koran about this? So now you do not go to heaven...Sorry that's the rules...

So Muhammed...Please consider yourself more important than a follower of some religion look around you and ask yourself 'Is oil really everything 'we' got?'.
