You didn't mention Muslims in your list of people who are welcome to respond, but I will anyway.
1) No. We do not wish to be. The ones who do are confused in matters of religion, which is unfortunately a lot of them.
2) As long as you are at war with the Islamic world and causing mischief in the Islamic world, supporting dictators and corrupt governments, and
maintaining military bases in the Islamic world, you should not expect total peace, so yes, a possible threat. But again, see answer #1 and you see
that many Muslims are confused and seduced by the West, so you would not find most of them a threat. Most who come to the West just want a job.
3) What is your traditional way of life? Is it going to Church? As a Muslim, if you will not become Muslim, then I encourage you to go to Church.
But if by traditional, you mean people dressing and acting shamelessly. Using bad language, drugs, drinking, partying, etc. Then yes, we will
negatively effect that in various ways, insha'Allah.
4) If you want, but you will only come off as racist, whether you are or not. And it won't protect because many Westerners are becoming Muslim and
many of the people even getting arrested today for "Islamic Terrorism" are American citizens (two yesterday (one american citizen, and one
5) Banning niqaab (you call it burqa, but it's called niqaab. burqa is something else), minaarets, and Shar'iah courts, restrict the practice of our
religion. I am against this of course, but it's up to you.
Burqa is a face mask almost looks like an opera type thing.
Niqaab is the full face veil which most countries mean when mistakenly saying burqa.
Why do you need to see our women's faces? Obviously, by living in your countries, you cannot call it oppression. There might be the one odd husband
who tells his wife she has to wear it, but the vast majority choose it since your law does not force them to wear it. It's actually more of a
challenge to wear it in a western country since it is looked at as odd by many. And if for security reasons, obviously if they commit a crime you can
run them through the process, just respect their religion and only allow women to handle them or see them. Do not force them to show themselves to
Minarets? Churches have high steeples with a cross on the top. But banning minarets is ok? In my opinion, this is nothing more than an attack on
Shar'iah courts: These are only for civil matters and they are optional for the people so what's the problem? If a Muslim commits a crime, then he
is charged by the standard criminal court and local/state police. Why ban it? If the Muslims of the area wish to have a Shar'iah civil court to
handle their matters, does it harm non-Muslims?
My personal opinion on the last one is that a Shar'iah court cannot exist within a Western society with western law. It's a bad hybrid attempt.
Unless an area is wholly ruled by Shar'iah, living in a half-Shar'iah/half-Western law zone is the same as not having Shar'iah at all. It's
wrong, but I guess for settling some small civil disputes, as a Muslim, I would rather to go a Shar'iah court than some kuffar court who may not
understand our issues.
