I'm so so so sick and tired of people, ESPECIALLY on ATS with all of their "where are the moderate muslims" and "why don't peaceful muslims speak
out against radical Islam", and when I'm right here in your face, and when I respond to your request for a voice, you tell me I'm LYING TO PROTECT
MY FAITH! You don't want a muslim to speak out against radicals, you just want another muslim CO-SIGNING THEIR ACTIONS! I'm considering leaving ATS
because for a community of open minded people, there are surely a LOT of close minded individuals here. And based on the amount of stars and flags
THEY get I'd say the number keeps growing. I OPPOSE RADICALS OF ANY FAITH. I oppose violence, especially violence in the name of God. Now, lets see
how many people say I'm lying...
I'm British. I worked for many years with a bloke from Pakistan called Zamir. He was a devout Muslim. He was also the most English man I have ever
met. He was a wonderful and friendly person. Every Christmas he invited all his Christian friends to his house where his family laid on a fantastic
curry meal for everyone.
He went home to Pakistan recently and brought me back a lovely, hand-carved serving platter as a present before going back to Pakistan for good.
I miss him!
Why can't we just all get on like I and Zamir did?
We're all just people and we all have diffrent beliefs, its just how we react to others' beliefs which shapes the world.
Lets just all take a step back.
Next time its a religious festival for people you know who are not of your faith, try inviting them round to your place and letting them know you
appreciate their religion and maybe they will think better of you in the future.
Lets all just try to show respect for each other and perhaps we can stop hating each other.
