There is virtually no Islamic country in the world that treats people of the book fairly. From Algiers to Indonesiia the recent history is Islam towards non believers is one of terror and harm. Even in Attaturks Turkey churches are forbidden to own the land. Worse is the desecration of churches, killing innocents, forced conversion, all sins by the Quran, all not called sins by the majority of the Ummah.

They’ve built whole republic on this policy and that is their right to lean on it. It might be very difficult for Muslims and other religious people to understand such attitude of state to it’s own nation, but that’s how they have ended years of internal religious fights among citizens.

Perhaps he should’ve tried with a less religious group of Muslims. I’m surprised, being a Muslim myself, that no one would agree to participating in a project such as this! So little light has been shed on the daily lives of normal citizen of the Islamic faith and I think this would be one step in a very positive direction – that is, helping people outside of the faith to understand that despite the different religion, that we’re all just people trying to make our way in this world.

Europe has a never-ending history of intolerance not only for non-Christians, but also for Christians of the “wrong” denominations. Violence and bloodshed have been the norm there when dealing with “the other.” My advice to European Muslims is to, if possible, get out while the gettin’ is good.

Muslims do not fit in to Christian lands any more than Christians fit in to Muslim lands. The latter was made clear a few decades ago when the French infidels were drivin out of Muslim lands. It’s only a matter of time before the converse takes place, and Muslims are driven out of Christian lands. The two ‘species’ are incompatible. ‘Birds of a feather flock together’ is a natural phenomena.

It is not that they are being abused or mistreated or left in ghettos. The French, everywhere (even in Canada), are idiots. But this is a rule which I will support. Muslims, as a people, are extremely bonded by religion based rules. a hijab and body cover has nothing to do with personal modesty. Its a security concern. What prevents somebody wearing a full body hijab to detonate a bomb and kill people. It should be outlawed everywhere in the world for that matter. If you want to wear a hijab for your modesty, please go back to where you came from. Otherwise, INTEGRATE and ASSIMILATE with the society to which you have wilfully come.
