Correct me if i'm wrong, but I don't think there are issues with the Kippah being forced on people are there?
"Not forced"—you mean, unlike Muslim countries forcing head-coverings on women:

When was the last time a Christian woman was punished for not wearing a veil?

Are you implying that Christian/Western women are anywhere near as subjugated as women in Muslim countries?

I believe that women in Muslim countries are more subjugated than women in Christian/Western countries. Do you disagree with that statement?

When was the last time a Christian woman was punished for not wearing a veil?
When was the last time the majority of women in any country were Christian

22 yards, here's a video about women in Iran being subjugated and harassed for not wearing their hijabs.

Were you trolling or are you really that moronic?

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

Wow, you guys really do argue about some bizarre stuff. Is it even remotely a debate that Muslim women are in general currently more suppressed in terms of rights and civil liberties than non-Muslim women, especially in harder-line countries? This is simply common knowledge.

Au contraire Pashosh, you're the one with a demonstrable anti-muslim, anti-Arab axe to grind.
The issue you have of course, is living in a glass house, throwing stones.

For all your attempts you couldn't find a single post of mine which wasn't fact based or where I admited I was wrong.

You, on the orther hand keep on finding faults with Israel - but often get the facts/context wrong and accept Terrorist statements uncritically.

It's unfair that trolls are allowed to modeate.

Disagreeing with Israeli land grab policies and with people's fears that the west will become a Islamic caliphate are quite normal reactions from relatively sane forum users. Believing and repeating alt-right fascist propaganda that there is a huge crime wave in Sweden for example, solely as the result of immigrants, specifically muslim ones is also disingenuous. It's all about finding a balance

Apparently the alt-right fascist propaganda that there is a huge crime wave in Sweden is driven by the success of the social democratic model in Sweden and the alt right fears that this model will spread to other countries.

Getting facts wrong (Israel gives up land, doesn't grab it) and Ignoring well founded worries about mass Arab/Muslim immigration to Europe is neither sane nor smart.

btw, I never said that Europe become a Caliphate (which forum menber did?)
