What you actually mean is, do not comment unless you agree with me. Otherwise you are ignorant etc. etc. This is not debate, and it certainly is not democracy. Oh, of course I forgot, Islam does not believe in democracy except insofar as it can be used to further the globalisation of Islam. Of course you would not put Jesus on the bottom of your shoe.

While you do not believe he was the son of God, as good Christians do, you do believe he was the greatest of the prophets, Mohammed being the last. That does not mean that the companies mentioned are deliberately slighting Islam. You can prove anything, if you try hard enough. There are lies, damned lies, and statistics, used to be a witty response. Now we have to add Muslim interpretations. When I lived and worked in Saudi Arabia. Coke was banned. Not because it was insulting Islam, but because it was a Jewish company. That is in itself an insult, would you not agree, you who respect all religions, which I suspect is very far from the case.
