I've been told "As-salam alaykum" many times, and I replied accordingly and not once I felt offended by it. But then again, I've probably dealt
with more muslims than you'll ever get a chance to deal with.
Really? So you go around (assuming you're from a western country) and say aleikumsalaam back
And you are not a muslim?
Now I call BS.
I'm from a western country yes, brown haired, green eyes, and not a muslim, actually, not even religious for that matter - know many muslims, many
jews, many christians, many "browns", many "blacks", many "whites", many "yellows" (dont know many reds which is a shame because I admire them
a lot - but theres no reds where they send us), many russians, many americans, many africans, many south americans, chinese, look... you name it,
I've met them.
I greet, answer and address accordingly or else Id probably wouldnt be here today. I earned my respect by being respectful and by knowing my place,
and my place was recognized. Not by being a self entitled ass - not in my own country nor in theirs.
Look, you can do your dance, just make sure you know whos playing the music and that you know that music well.
And just to answer your question about that answer, well it depends on too many factors. I would say, sometimes I can, sometimes I cant.
As for your call of BS, seriously mate? Its not like I have anything to prove to you or anyone really... so, have it anyway you like it.
