I do think that a lot of them feel unfairly targeted and discriminated against since 9/11, and probably think that most people discriminate against them. However, I don't really think that's the case.

I think some of the Muslims in Western countries are a little over-sensitive, but I guess they are subjected to a lot of unfair criticisms and discrimination. It's hard to blame them for being too sensitive until we are put into their positions. So, this is just my opinion.

Anyways, not gonna vote. Too sensitive a topic ,don't wanna piss people off...

Yes they are. Yesterday I was watching this Indian muslim lady on CNN. She's out to bring changes in Islam . She wants women to be able to worship side by side with men and to be equal to them in every way possible. Poor thing has received many death threats to this day --- 35 men from her mosque have signed petitions to have her thrown out of the Mosque , but she's fighting along. Hopefully many more muslim women will join her in this fight for equality.

Well, they are no different than any of the other major religons. They have all gone through their "prickly" periods. They have all experienced some sort of discrimination. This too shall pass

There is no such thing as the "worst" religion, one's belief is their own individual belief/identity and no one should judge and especially look down on someone's religion. you dont have to believe in the same views, but you should still be respectful

YES, YES, YES - & its a complete joke how we pander to Muslim paranoia.

People can say whatever they like about Christianity (& they usually do), but if you criticise Islam in public you are berated as racist or xenophobic by the media & risk being beheaded in the street (Van Gogh) by some crazed Islamist.

MULTICULTURALISM - NO

INTERGRATION - YES

You are just sad. You don't have to insult others. Come on how old are you ?? She should wear what we wear or live

You have your answer about the question, this is why I ( as a muslim ) or any other muslim is sensetive about Islam. People talk and attack Islam and they don't even know what they are talking against.

i step on the stones of belief in order to get across the troubled waters of religion, and that way keep myself dry from the flooded hatred and evil.
all men should believe, religion takes too much of our freedom to believe and think and question god and the world.
open up your minds.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.
