    We shouldn't ban Islam, or any other religious ideology. Everyone should have the right to freedom of expression, however insulting their beliefs may be.

    It's called an assumption ... the same thing you did when you assumed OP, or whoever, was generalising Muslims.

    Another moment of irony ... Muslims AREN'T a minority in these areas, especially Porte de Vincennes. I would know that.
    It's quite clear you're obsessed with all things islam

    Where did I state,in my quote,that I'm a Muslim? I speak up for ethic minorities and Muslims because there seems to be a lot of threads bashing them
    Sorry Jumped to conclusions But tell me are you a muslim?

    But as I have given you an example of muslims banning faiths and religious festivals would you not say we are better then them because we will not?

    That would be giving the islamists what they want: more excuses to attack the west. Attacks on Muslims who are equally appalled by the attacks are just going to lead to disillusionment of Muslims who have done nothing wrong and fuel recruitment of more terrorists.

    Of course not. Banning a religion when many of its followers are law abiding and peaceful would only drive the moderates closer to the extremists.

    This is what the jihadists want - they want Islam to end up persecuted because of terrorist acts, because then it's easier to brainwash people into supporting jihadists, who could finally get their war of "Islam vs the West" that they've been trying to provoke for so long.

    Scientology was banned in France.

    No protests from leftists.

    Just the mention of banning the death cult of Islam, and the leftists have a fit.
    Has scientology actually been banned or have they simply refused to recognise it as a religion? Do you have any more information about it?

    And Scientology is a money making scam rather than a religion.

    Nobody is born a radical. We are better in a sense that we have respect for human life and can live in harmony, but just don't generalise everyone that follows that same religion as they do.

    Why are you not still in Syria? Will you be going home sometime soon? (sorry being sarcastic)

    So if a group refuses to ban a faith group and a second group does they are as good as each other

    personally I think the group that refuses to ban people faiths are the better people. Sorry if this bothers you.
