You didn't need to insult me, but, then you don't know any better. The message was that every nation has got a right to survive and exist. The Arabian nations, China and India have a right to exist. European nations have also got a right to exist. Now, most nations have got a very strong identity, be it national, religious or cultural.

By contrast, European nations are losing their own culture. That is due to foreign influences, especially from Muslims. That is why I talked about crescent replacing Christian crosses. Each nation has got its own identity. Each nation is entitled to have its own culture, religion, customs and traditions. I strongly defend European nations and their own traditions.

If you spent less time insulting people, maybe you would understand what they are trying to say. I am in favour of all nations being able to run their own affairs. Indeed, European nations should stand up for their heritage and religion. Do you still want to insult me?
