You are absolutely, 100000% correct. As a person who's family left Egypt, because of discrimination and intolerance from Muslims (I am of the Coptic Orhodox church) we came to Australia to get away from it all. In Egypt if we wish to fix the roof tiles on our church because they are warn out we need Govt authorisation! if we demand anything, we get vilified. Christmas became a national holiday in Egypt in 2002 - It took nearly 50 yrs of independence before we got this holiday.

The thing that annoys me most is that when Muslims come to a largely non-muslim society they keep crying they are discriminated. THIS IS COMPLETELY HYPOCRITICAL... What goes around comes around my muslim friends.

And the other thing that annoys me is that we left Egypt, because we wanted to get away from the discrimination, yet why the heck are muslims following us by coming to countries like Aus, UK, USA, etc. We left Egypt for u, stay there, it is our home, but we left because of you - it makes me sick.

We never demanded anything, but fairness, yet you muslims come to Aust. and demand laws to be changed and all this other nonsense.

Islam is not a religion of peace, nor cruelty. However, it is a religion of intolerance. Egypt was a christian country before the Arabs invaded... Christianity spread through missionaries, and peace - NOT BY THE SWORD.
