Sir- I don't quite understand what point you are trying to make.

You talk about a "Muslim nation", whereas there are 52 countries which could be described as "Muslim Nations". Do you mean the worldwide brotherhood of all Muslims? Anyway, I see what you are saying. Muslims believe in peace. I don't know the Muslim world enough to assess that statement. I understand that Muslims are portrayed in a negative way, by the media, cinema, the press.

You see, I respect your beliefs, but I don't want your beliefs. I am sure Muslims are decent people, but I don't think they can fit in western societies. Western nations, especially European nations, have got their own unique characteristics. How many REAL Muslims do I know? I know a few Muslims, but I am not able to tell you if they are REAL Muslims.

As for your religion, I deeply respect Islam and those who follow it. I just don't think that Muslims are compatible with any western or European nation. Globalism wants to bring all of us together. But is that really possible? This is leading towards the Balkanization of the west and Europe.
