Dearborn Reverses The Population Trend

DETROIT (WWJ) – Dearborn is nationally known as the home of Ford Motor Co., the Henry Ford museum and one of the most concentrated Middle Eastern communities.

Now it can boast about bucking a trend that saw Detroit and other surrounding communities lose population.

The census numbers released last week don’t note it, but officials and experts say a rising tide of Arab immigrants and their growing families have helped the city hold its demographic ground.

Dearborn recorded a slight population increase, climbing a half of a percent.  Other neighboring communities lost people and Detroit saw its population drop by a staggering 25 percent.

    My family settled Dearborn in the mid-nineteenth century – has a street and school named for my ancestors, I grew up there and know the city well. You are an idiot. You have no understanding of the place and the fact the Arab community pumps a ton of money into the economy – have cleaned up the city, etc (they care about the community they live in and show it!). You truly are an idiot.

    PS. It’s ok, James, you are by no means alone, there are plenty of idiots like you – you are not even a special idiot – just a simple, average, every day idiot.

    • Nathan Boji

      Haigh? Pffffft. That’s like the WORST school in the whole system. And there is a “funny” smell on Haigh Street too. That’s like being related to John Skid and being excited that Skid Row was named after someone in your family.

      Well said.

      Hey Mike, I think you are speaking from your heart. What you wrote at 11:04 is so true I couldn’t have said it any better. I never heard a musim say they love this country or its culture. But they sure like the money and their constitutional rights.

      we have a bunch of bleeding hearts here who should get their heads out of the arse.

    Dearborn is actually one of the better cities in Michigan. It is prosperous, clean, and safe for families and single people, thanks to the Arab-American community there. It is also home to many big corporations including Ford Motor and it has some of the best middle eastern restaurants anywhere in America!

    • diana

      Well i live here mike and its beautiful with the nicest people

  • BethesdaNative

    By the way, out of the millions of Arab immigrants to America over the last 100 years, more than 70% of them are Christian Arabs, so please stop your lies and propaganda. The muslim arabs who immigrate here to america are also great people with education and knowledge of the outside world.

    • BethesdaNative

      I was talking nationwide, not only in Dearborn. More than 70% of Arab immigrants nationwide are Christian Arabs.

    • Chloe

      Dude you and Mike are just bigoted nuts. I live here and it’s just fine. I live in a beautiful and historic neighborhood. It’s VERY safe (check the police blotters and crime stats), schools are one of the better districts in the states, we have cool places to eat and drink and hang out. Beautiful parks, oh and diversity. Sounds like you just have a tightly closed mind. Glad you left.

  • jeff

    Fyi, a large percentage of the money the Arab community pumps into the economy comes from the taxpayers of Michigan. Anytime an immigrant comes to Michigan, they are entitled to free health care, free bridge card w/ the spending money, free education, free job training, free lessons in English if they cannot speak it, as well as the millions of dollars that are spent every year on the schools in their community. All of this and they are not required to work at all.

    I would hope the majority of the people are hardworking and just want to live a normal life. I have not seen the data on how many receive assistance, but I have seen the dollar amounts that are allocated to Dearborn every year and it is staggering.

    You will never hear about this in the paper

    • Nadine

      Actually Jeff, you are completely mistaken on how the welfare system in this state works. The only immigrants that recieve health care and bridge cards from the state are the refugees from Iraq that would not have had to come here if the United States hadn’t invaded Iraq in the first place. If an immigrant comes here from ANY country on a visa or green card, they are not entitled to ANY government assistance until they are here for at least five years. Useless people like you need to stop running your mouths without knowing what it is that you are talking about. Stop being threatened by Arabs’ success in this country and make yourself useful. Thank you and have a lovely day Jerk.

      • Tasha

        Actually Nadine, you need to keep your mouth shut and not be so judgmental of others. Jeff is correct about the free ride when coming from a turbulent region. I have a ton of family from all over the Middle East who have come here and are given food stamps, cash assistance, medicaid, job training, a car voucher, and get their names bumped on the lists for low-income housing. All the while they work under the table and claim there are no jobs out there. I was born here, my mother immigrated here 25 years ago (now a citizen), and we are always struck with how unfair this is. We don’t even qualify for health insurance AS CITIZENS of this country, but they, who have come here only a year ago, have a free ride that the taxpayers cover.

        He is also correct that you will never hear about it anywhere.

      • Bertram C. Ferguson

        So… we can expect the refugees of obamas new wars in Afghan, Iran, and Libya, to flock here too? Refugees that somehow some way will go on government assistance and most likely be given a 7/11 or another convenience store of their choosing .. just because obama invaded them?

    Jeff, how much money/tax dollars are being spent — is this state or federal money?

  • SortaExtremist

    You are right Mike. As if The US government is not in the MIddle East for Financial gain. I got an Idea, get the hell out of the middle east. Take the Tyrants you support and your greedy oil companies and we’ll see how you’ll manage without the US Dollar being the Standard in Oil Business. The only reason why the US dollar is even on life support is because of the oil standard.
    Get educated before making stupid comments.

    • mike

      nobodys talkin about oil or the foreign interests of the US gov you moron we’re talkin about foreign people in this country that hate american values and ways of life and are only here to exploit it. You are comparing apples to oranges. pay attention to the discussion before you bother to say something stupid.

      NO ALLEGIANCE TO AMERICA… that’s your issue and our problem.

      Get it? Can you fathom that thought… the fact that we know your goals?

  • Mohamad

    Speechless. I’m a Muslim, an Arab who lives around here and I tell you’ the hatred that I’ve been seeing around here is horrific/appalling. That’s why I’m so greatful when I meet somebody nice in this ara, but you know what? I see this hatred most concentrated around Wayne county and the most specifically the lower-class neighborhoods. there are roughly 7 Million Muslims in the US at this time-1.5 of the population and the same for the Jews, and in this area-only this area, I keep hearing people saying: “Muslims have messed up our country…Jews have ruind our country.” etc. but you know who are the folks who say that? It’s the unsuccessful people who want to justify their faileiur by blaming others. It’s mostly them who collect food-stamps and live on the margin of society. People of all populations have mygrated to America–Greece, Ireland, the UK France, Germany, the African contenant etc, and this is what makes America unique amongst the other nations.
    Many of the Jews and Muslims and others who work hard appreciate life, and thus, work hard to better their lives and their communities, that’s all. There are some bad folks out there—Arabs and Jews, but so there are others; we’re human beings after all. Many of us are hard-working folks and a few are lazy thugs–that’s normal in every community, so please don’t blame your faileiur on us, because that exposes your insecurities/idiosity.

    • Joe

      Mohamed – You see the Muslim Cult is very different than the other religions. Muslims (and Koran) believe that all Kafirs – non-believers – should be killed or put in slavery. Koran tells the Muslims to NOT make friends with non-Muslims. Koran also tells Muslims that there is only one God – Allah. All others are not tolerable to Muslims. Koran also instructs Muslims to make Jihad to annihilate other religions.

      Other religions believe in peaceful co-existence with everyone. Not Islam. Just think that Mohamed himself was cruel and a pedophile. How can he then preach peace.

      Mohamed, please read the Koran and the associated Sharia Law carefully and then tell me that Islam is peaceful and tolerant. Why do you think Muslims are always in a fight with the rest of the world. Because Koran has no vision for peaceful family life. It is always referring to ‘kill’ or be ‘killed’. Their motto is ‘eye’ for an ‘eye’ or worse.

      • ajk

        Hello Joe ,Im not deffending the Islam religion and im attacking you ,but I still think that there no religion came from god will tell you any of what you thinking YOU ARE WRONG I read the Bibel and I read the koraon verrrry simular my friend but is is the way you want to believe it and I believe you watching too much CNN wake up and educate your self .peace

    • cbm

      Quit pretending to stand up for jews too. you are not fooling anyone.

      I’m an immigrant too. I love this country and I’ve made it my home. I don’t understand how you can move to a country, build your life and raise your kids there, when you secretly hate what that country stands for. What a miserable life that must be. I honestly believe you’d be better of moving to saudi arabia, or qatar, cause they are rich and more like minded. if you feel more strongly about your faith indonesia is a hop skip away. europe and usa are not the obvious choices, that’s all.

      I think America is more of a stew than a melting pot. We bring our values and cultures with us and add value and diversity to the communities we live in. There’s nothing wrong with that. I just don’t want USA to become like netherlands, changing law after law to accomodate the sensitive muslims offended by public nudity, pot etc. We shouldnt worry about this though, because there’s two gentelman’s clubs in dearborn and business is booming there.

    • BHO

      Do us all a favor and take your damn religion out of here.

  • Pig Pen

    Bob, I wonder how many of those immigrants know how to spell “appauled” or know how to read and write at better than the 2nd grade level. Maybe we should let one of them into the country and deport you in order to make room.

    • Bob

      Thanks for the spelling lesson Piggy, your either for or against…… know the score Dilbert…. OH, and don’t let the door hit you in the ass upon leaving.

  • Patrick

    Hi Bob, you are a very silly man. We do not let everyone in, no questions asked. I am Chaldean and it took some of my cousins who live here now upwards of ten years to complete the entire process. Also, Bob is not a Native-American name, so do the entire country a favor and mass deport yourself and your family back to where you originally came from.

    Last note, that video you posted, I am not even Muslim and I am appalled that you would watch a video from an organization bent on making Islam look bad and edited in a way to accomplish these goals. I don’t live in Dearborn, nor do any of my relatives, however, I love eating there and whenever I go down there, there is absolutely no presence of Sharia. Get over yourself, trash.

    • jeff

      Good for you patrick as an ex dearborn resident. nice place and nice people. wouldn'[t mind going back. don’t mind the ignorant but take caustion of the treats, the ignorant are more dangerous. good for dearborn residents whether they are arab-american or not. cheers . me grew up there (white) and not predujuce over diversity or religios differences. more power to you and dearborn.

    Hello Mike, I know in front that it is waste of time to explain to you that you are wrong and big racist who try to show himself like a hereo who defend the country. Do you know that Christianity and Jesus do not teach people hate and racism, so can you tell me idiot from where did you get your hate and racism? I believe that you are copying HIttler and at the end you will be the looser because you are full of hate and of racism.

  • diana

    you need to wake up ur rasist about a religion u know nothing about other than what ur brainwashed of hearing maybe you should study something before u speak of something u know nothing about. Is that why muslims are growing faster than any other religion on this planet. There must be something right about it. No need to judge all muslims because of something a few people did that most muslims dont agree with in the first place stop judging millions of muslims because of what just a few number of people did

    • cbm

      Hi Diana,
      You are right to note that not all muslims should be held accountable for what happened on 9.11. They are guilty for rejoycing out on the streets and handing out candy becuase innocent americans died. Not one imam denounced the actions of those radicals. but, they’ll scream at the camera if their rights are infringed upon.

      A friend of mine who was studying at UM at teh time told me he saw them cheer and congratulate each other ’cause apparently we had it coming.
      That is scary diana. these are the educated ones who feel this way.
      The only reason islam is spreading as fast as it is, it’s because they reproduce at a much much higher rate than the rest. If you deny this then there’s seriously smth wrong with you.

      You should visit england or any of the western europian countries. it’s a mess. this open border thing has changed the demography of eu and made a babylon out of it. they don’t hide their hatred at all over there, actually they scream it in the middle of the street on megaphone, it’s scary. They are protected under freedom of speech, of course.
      In the mean time, you should continue to follow charlie sheen’s antics, lohan’s trial, water your flowers to occupy your time and sleep well cause your loving neighbors are peaceful and tolerant, for now.

    • Ian

      Lots of people downloaded Rebecca Black’s “Friday,” doesn’t mean it was any good. Islam is fastest growing as they breed the most, no one can leave without fear of death (Sahih al-Bukhari, 9:84:57), and if you want to believe something else in a muslim-controlled nation, the best you can hope for is being taxed for the privilege. Don’t be mad when someone points out facts. These are just facts.

      The overwhelming proponderance of terrorist acts are committed by muslims. Do all muslims commit terrorist acts? Certainly not. But by your own reasoning, the numbers would seem to suggest something monstrous about that religion/culture/philosophy that makes it fertile ground for terrorist thinking and actions.

    • John

      Islam grows due to the fact that people can’t leave it or else they will be killed by their pedo imams. Also, it is a religion for sheep and doesn’t allow for free thought.

      A lot of Muslims who leave Islamic countries eventually renounce Islam after being exposed to other cultures and religions. This happens a lot in France.

      I just hope that more of them wake up and see the light (not from a suicide vest).

  • K

    As a white convert to Islam and as a woman I have been more a target of hate from my own race of people than I ever believed possible. America is a melting pot. America is meant to be a place where people are free to practice whatever faith they may subscribe to. Hate does absolutely nothing but cause more hate. No one iasking you to practice Islam or become Muslim. You have your places of worship and Muslims want a place to worship as well. I grew up in a rich white world and as a youth I believed Arabs were dirty because that’s the ignorance I had been raised with. When I actually met an Arab person I was ashamed to find that it was I who was lacking in many things. I was amazed with the hospitality, generosity, impeccable manners even amongst the men and the polite way in which people dealt with one another. Then I found out they literally were raised with better hygene than I. I recognized my own ignorance. Then I believed that Muslim women were slaves and had to learn that they actually had men who were willing and able to protect the women in their lives. Please all you who hate-please educate yourselves and read the Quran. It should be a text read by all just for the benefit alone. Lastly, I moved from a State that was once white American is now mostly hispanic. That’s life people. For years the landscape of this world has been changing as people immiigrate from other places in the world and that change will continue as long as we live. Muslim people are being treated less than human. I don’t see us having it easy. It seems to me this is the land of the free as long as it’s the acceptable vision of what that freedom is to look like. I am sorry to have to point this out but many white people who were fortunate to be born in this country and being stingy and selfish. They don’t want to share. They resent Muslims for having a presence in this country and they want this to be a white Chistian country. They see Islam looming larger and larger and they are freaked out about it. Ignorance, hate and bigotry are shameful things. Please don’t be proud of yourselves because you should not be. To those people who are rationale and can show some tollerance for something different than what you believe thank you and keep it up. That’s what Americans are supposed to do. We are to tolerate each others differences because we all have the freedom in the US to be who we are.

    • Schlepp

      Obviously, you are reading a Quran translated in to English. But if you are reading a Quran which was translated after 9-11-2001, you are reading Garbage. Muslim community spent a lot of money to re-write the Quran in English and to remove the bad portions in the translation. Get a copy of translation prior to 9-11-2001 and you will see a different picture. Islam is the most intolerant ‘Cult’. I can not call it a religion in good conscience. Quran is filled with ‘kill’ scenarios. Besides, Prophet Mohamed did not lead an exemplary life himself. I hope you are aware of that. And what are you looking for in Islam – there is vision of peace in Quran.

    • cbm

      Hi K,
      I’m a white woman who was born muslim and repudiated that religion when i grew up and could think for myself.
      The day will come when you will see islam for the religion that it really is. Right now you are probably enamored with its romanticized veneer of peace and impeccable manners ( as you say). But you don;t know how they think. You are in for a rude awakening. But I don’t care about your soul and i will tolerate your religion because i respect your right. I hope you can respect my right to feel disgusted with you.

      • Larry King

        Welll said. Many Muslims feel the need to convert after leaving Islamic countries. There is not one sane or rational person who can truly believe that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance.

        CBM, I am glad that youhave found the light. Are you agnostic now?

        Also, Muslims have good manners, especially to women – as long as they don’t walk next to them or speak or walk alone without a male relative or drive, etc. Now, if they do any of those things, the koran allows her husband (who may be a cousin) to beat her until she complies. Peace and love my fellow Americans!

  • TooSadTooBadTooUgly

    Mike you “moron”, you are the one who needs to pay attention to the discussion, Nadine said the people who are here from Iraq, are here because of the US invasion of Iraq. These people are called refugees. Maybe you need a dictionary.
    Secondly all the man said is that you and Bob are complaining about the “foreigners” being here and taking jobs notice I quoted the word “foreigners”, because we all are foreigners, do not give me that native nonsense. Second you and a few other buffoons on here act as if you would work the the of jobs all the immigrants are working. Would you pick oranges? or would you fix people’s lawn? or shovel snow? My point!
    least but not last as sortaextremist stated, if we as americans stop bothering the Arabs and messing with them for oil gains, and “send the Arabs” as you suggested, are you willing to pay 20 dollars a gallon of gas? Cause I am not. This is a melting pot country, and too sad too bad to see that you do not get that idea!

  • Jerry

    Dearborn is not the same as what it was. Ive been a dearborn resident for over 20 years and ive seen the city go in a fast slope downward over the last few years. There are alot of rental properties in the area that are occupied by tennats that dont care about the area or the surrounding neighbors. Dearborn is a great multicultural area. We just need to get dearborn back to where it was and have pride in the area that you live. We need to ALL stick together and be aware of whats going on with each other and look out for each other.

  • ZZ

    Who are you mike to call us foreigners?. We are citizens and we love America more than you do, because we are not trying to discriminate anybody, but you are discriminating a whole commiunity by calling it foreigners. So, watch your mouth when you say something and kill yourself stupid. In my opinion, you are trying to tell us that you are full of hate because we are better than you or we have more knowledge than you have. You Are Jealous.

  • RickyX

    Mike, seriously you’ve been sniffing too much paint fumes from painting your trailer home too many times. Instead of sitting on your milk box and drinking a cold one try reading a book and educating yourself. You sound like such a moron that I laugh whenever I read your comments.

    Arabs don’t need to embrace “your” values they have their own. Everyone is free to practice and believe what they want. Who said your values are correct in the first place? Maybe you should embrace the arabic values..that way you will learn to have some manners and respect.

    The religion part of Muslin is good. It is the political part of the “so called” radical muslins who use the religion for political purposes. Their religious laws are no different from ours. But the radicals are using their religion to shadow their own beliefs. This is the part that I feel is wrong. That is the part that is making me feel uncomforable towards the Mujslins. It makes me sad to see that they do not respect our laws. Why they do not melt in the pot the same as other immigrants is my question. Why special horns for praying? I pray and I do not need a bell to call me for prayers. Why demand special rules in the name of religion? It should be seperate from state laws. However, Radical Muslins are making the law to benefit them only. This is what is happening to the good Muslin religion.

  • GDC

    CBS Communist Broadcasting System Any questions?

    Religion IS a mental sickness and ALL who believe in any religion ARE mentally sick, delusional, psychotic!! Still the sickest of all religions is Islam, the Muslim religion. It is the number one obstacle to world peace. Psychiatrists in the past have stated that Arabs ARE innately psychotic. In other words they have a genetic predisposition to be psychotic and history supports that claim.

    One poster said we should read the Koran. Well here is some of it.

    Qur’an 9:73 “O Prophet, strive hard [fighting] against the unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be harsh with them. Their abode is Hell, an evil refuge indeed.”

    Qur’an 8:59 “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them.”

    Qur’an 4:168 “Those who reject [Islamic] Faith, Allah will not forgive them nor guide them to any path except the way to Hell, to dwell therein forever. And this to Allah is easy.”

    Qur’an 4:114 “He who disobeys the Apostle after guidance has been revealed will burn in Hell.”

    Ishaq:344 “We smote them and they scattered. The impious met death. They became fuel for Hell. All who aren’t Muslims must go there. It will consume them while the Stoker [Allah] increases the heat. They had called Allah’s Apostle a liar. They claimed, ‘You are nothing but a sorcerer.’ So Allah destroyed them.”

    Qur’an 33:60 “Truly, if the Hypocrites stir up sedition, if the agitators in the City do not desist, We shall urge you to go against them and set you over them. They shall have a curse on them. Whenever they are found, they shall be seized
    and slain without mercy – a fierce slaughter – murdered, a horrible murdering.”

    Qur’an 33:64 “Verily Allah has cursed the Unbelievers [whom he defines as Christians in the 5th surah] and has prepared for them a Blazing Fire to dwell in forever. No protector will they find, nor savior. That Day their faces will be turned
    upside down in the Fire. They will say: ‘Woe to us! We should have obeyed Allah and obeyed the Messenger!’ ‘Our Lord! Give them double torment and curse them with a very great Curse!'”

    Qur’an 5:10 “Those who reject, disbelieve and deny Our signs, proofs and verses will be companions of Hell-Fire.”

    Qur’an 88:1 “Has the narration reached you of the overwhelming (calamity)? Some faces (all disbelievers, Jews and Christians) that Day, will be humiliated, downcast, scorched by the burning fire, while they are made to drink from a
    boiling hot spring.”

    Bukhari:V1B11N617 “I would order someone to collect firewood and another to lead prayer. Then I would burn the houses of men who did not present themselves at the compulsory prayer and prostration.”

    Bukhari:V1B11N626 “The Prophet said, ‘No prayer is harder for the hypocrites than the Fajr. If they knew the reward they would come to (the mosque) even if they had to crawl. Certainly I decided to order a man to lead the prayer and then take a flame to burn all those who had not left their houses for the prayer, burning them alive inside their homes.'”

    Bukhari:V4B52N260 “The Prophet said, ‘If a Muslim discards his religion, kill him.'”

    Qur’an 5:51 “Believers, take not Jews and Christians for your friends.”

    Qur’an 74:31 “We have appointed nineteen angels to be the wardens of the Hell Fire. We made a stumbling-block for those who disbelieve and We have fixed their number as a trial for unbelievers in order that the People of the Book may arrive with certainty, and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book, those in whose hearts is a disease.”

    • Bob

      sounds peace loving to me ……..hummmmmm

  • GDC

    How about some more from the Koran.

    Qur’an 72:15 “The disbelievers are the firewood of hell.”

    Qur’an 72:17 “If any turns away from the reminder of his Lord (the Qur’an), He will thrust him into an ever growing torment, and cause for him a severe penalty.”

    Qur’an 72:25 “Whoever disobeys the Lord and His Messenger then there is for him the fire of Hell where they shall abide forever.”

    Qur’an 88:21 “You are not a warden over them; except for those who turn away and disbelieve, in which case, he will be punished with the severest punishment. Verily to Us they will return.”

    Qur’an 90:19 “But those who reject Our Signs, Proofs, and Verses, they are the unhappy Companions of the Left Hand. Fire will be their awning, vaulting over them.”

    Qur’an 95:4 “We have indeed created man in the best molds. Then do We abase him, reducing him to be the lowest of the low, except such as believe.”

    Tabari VIII:130 “The Messenger said, ‘Two religions cannot coexist in the Arabian Peninsula.’ Umar investigated the matter, then sent to the Jews, saying: ‘Allah has given permission for you to be expelled.”

    Qur’an 2:64 “But you [Jews] went back on your word and were lost losers. So become apes, despised and hated. We made an example out of you.”

    Qur’an 66:9 “O Prophet! Strive hard against the unbelieving Infidels and the Hypocrites; be severe against them. Their abode is Hell, an evil resort.”

    Qur’an 60:1 “Believers, take not my enemies and yours as allies, offering them love, even though they have rejected the truth that has come to you, and have driven out the Prophet and you because you believe in Allah! If you have come out to struggle [fight jihad] in My Cause, and to seek My Pleasure, (take them not as friends), holding secret converse of love with them: for I am aware of all you conceal. And any of you that does this has strayed from the Straight Path. If they were to get the better of you, they would be your foes, and stretch forth their hands and their tongues against you with evil (designs).”

    Qur’an 60:4 “We reject you. Hostility and hate have come between us forever, unless you believe in Allah only.'”

    Qur’an 48:13 “If any believe not in Allah and His Messenger, We have prepared a Blazing Fire for them!”

    Qur’an 48:28 “It is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the Religion of Truth (Islam), that he may make it superior to every other religion, exalting it over them. Allah is a sufficient Witness. Muhammad is the Prophet of Allah. Those who are with him are severe with Infidel unbelievers.”

    Qur’an 47:3 “Those who disbelieve follow vanities, while those who believe follow truth from their Lord: Thus does Allah coin for men their similitudes [resemblances] as a lesson. Whoever denies faith [in Islam and Muhammad], his work is of no account, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.”

    Qur’an 9:2 “You cannot weaken Allah or escape. Allah will disgrace the unbelievers and put those who reject Him to shame.”

      Thank you GDC you have done your homework. It parallels the great amount of time I have spent reading the Qu’ran, the Hadiths, Sharia law, the life of Muhammad, and the history of Jihad of the last 1400 years.

    Unfortunately, ignorance and arrogance are both alive and well in good ole’ America.

    All I can say is that most terriorists are muslums but not all muslums are terrorists but watch their teachings, they want to take over from within.

    CBM – Please share more of your thoughts and experiences from your conversion from Islam. I’m sure many people are curious.

      My parents aren’t really religious and early on allowed their kids to choose for themselves. I was super lucky, in that sense, not to be indoctrinated one way or the other. So it wasn’t really a conversion. But i grew up in that culture and saw how backwards it can be. How unfair it is to a woman, from birth to death she is someone’s property.

      Anyways, religion is such a personal choice and it should be practiced freely and unabashedly. Muslim have that right too. They would do themselves and everyone else a favor if they stayed away from radicalims that preaches hatred toward other faiths, to put it mildly.

      I personally, couldn’t honestly follow the preachings of someone who easily gave in to his sexual urges, especially with a little girl.

    Ever wonder why it’s OK for Muslims to blow up a mosque, slaughter other muslims, kill themsleves, etc.? It’s because they know that they are the lowest of the low.

    Right on for the first half of what you said. But the second half? You’re talking about adjusting their religious practices in order to fit with what your idea of a religious practice should be. Melting pot of religion? No such thing. The bell is because there isn’t a set time to pray (example 2am). It’s at dawn/dusk, etc. Which means the time they pray changes a bit from day to day to day. Try keeping track of that for any length of time and you’ll clearly see why someone ringing a bell to let you know it’s praying time is so much easier.

    Not sure what you meant by “special rules”. You’d have to clarify that one.

    I do agree that religions are ALL basically the same. They have their good parts and their really nasty parts. Religion doesn’t make people good or bad, really. People make religion good or bad. All fundamentalists, whether Christian, Muslim, Jew, take their religion and twist it to fit their own purposes and to exempt them from taking personal responsibility for their actions.

    regardless, the truth is arabs dont burn houses as even showcased in hamtramck (now a dump but thanks to arabs still unburned) the point is black burns houses as evident in detroit
