I'm sorry if you think I took your post out of context, I was just responding to what you said:

From what I see these days, we had a remembrance parade that remembers all of our fallen soldiers by the symbolic poppy from all of our conflicts,
including WW1 and WW2.
Muslims ruined a moment of silence by shouting 'British soldiers burn in hell'. For those reasons I would never convert or support Islam.
You have been giving tenuous and weak reasoning throughout, this is all I was pointing out. Just because some person came out to you and "started
threatening and screaming" at you, doesn't make all muslims, or Islam in general evil, nor does it make sensible or logical your desire to "ship them
all back to the middle east where they belong, even if they were not born there" (kinda similar to the behaviour of certain Europeans towards jews in
the last century, no?).

It also shows what racism and bigotry is capable of. One of those links in that thread of yours (the document reality one) had the videos posted on a
forum. While the videos themselves didn't work, many of the responses seriously made me sad. "Towel-heads", "Rag-heads", "bloody arabs", "WHY DOESN'T
SOMEONE NUKE THEM?!", "Gimme a red button so I can send them all to hell", and these are just the tamer ones, from only the first 2 pages. I tried
reading further, but the site apparently wants me to pay to visit it.
I'm not sure, but this thread here also seems to be serving a similar purpose, albeit in a more subtle way ("if I could put them all on a boat and
ship them back to the middle east tomorrow, I would, it doesn't matter if they were born in the UK or were converts" being an example). I mean, I
seriously don't get the point of this thread, unless it is just to have a platform for a bunch of guys to rally around to say "I WOULD NEVER CONVERT!"
or "Over my cold, dead, jesus believing body" or some such thing.
"If Christianity becomes the dominate[sic] world religion would you convert"? Hint: It already is, and answer: no, you would not.
"If Hinduism becomes the dominant world religion would you convert"? Hint: It is the dominant religion in India, and guess what, for about 400 million
people, the answer is no.
"If Islam was the dominant world religion would you convert"? Hint: It was dominant (this time in terms of power) in India for over 500 years, and
guess what...for most of the population, the answer was "No".
