I think it's because some people believe that by buying their products, that some of the money will end up giving Israel more money, for more
weapons, which will end up with more death and war.
The same way I would not want to give money to Hammas, if some of the stories we hear are true, then I do not want to support any side, to support
them would be agreeing with their actions, which are mostly shameful.
I support the innocent civillians in the middle of all this. Picking sides just continues this chaos in my opinion. That's why you see people even in
america/uk almost getting too angry and almost violent, simply because they "picked" a side to support. As if it's all just a game.
I'd like your opinion regarding how you personally feel when people claim things like Islam is taking over the UK or 'infiltrating' the UK, if you
We surely have to be careful of extremists. That's for sure.
But in my opinion this is mostly fear mongering, it mostly comes from people who simply hate muslims, they spread their propaganda and agendas, as if
they are trying to cause a seperation, to cause chaos and negativity.
You see a LOT more anti muslim comments and non muslims talking crap about muslims, than you see any muslim in the UK saying anything negative at all.
I know a lot of muslims, and we have never had a conversation about anything even close to hatred or complaining about anything.
That is why I have never seen one single muslim come on here and spread their hatred. But I have seen plenty of anti muslim guys over exaggurating
things, spreading propagandas, and spreading their hatred, such as "I want to see the whole middle east nuked" "I want to see all muslims dead"
"muslims support terrorism" etc etc
They are trying to spread "terror" to the people who are full of fear, fear of the unknown, fear of the different.
This is another example of people "picking" sides, as if they HAVE to, causing seperation, fear and anger.
They are not helping anybody. They are just making things worse.
Well this is not about my opinions, sorry lol.
