    look up basically
    You know not all of us agreed with the destruction of your country, and wanted Saddam dead. But Tony Blair did, and he had the popular vote at the time, as well as the backing of George Bush.

    I understand that over a million innocent civilians were killed in this war? Do you agree with this figure? And I can totally understand why your parents don't want to go back, It is a war zone there right now!

    You know the 'Lancet' a pretigious medical journal, sent some investigators over there both before and after the war, to interview and approximate casualties and fatalities, and they agreed it was a million plus deaths due to the war.

    Take it easy, and good luck with your schooling, have you considered what you want to do/which university you want to go to, after you leave?

    John.

    PS the Lancet have subsequently removed all traces of that report from their archives!

    you kinda implied it, i mean if my religion was not dominating the country then there really isnt a reason to worry is there boo?

    Idk what you mean by intolerance of others...we live in a multi-ethnic multi-faith society and tbh where i live, theres been no intolerance, my best friends are white, my parent get along with their parents...but tbh i dont know what you mean by "others"
    secondly, personally i am neutral towards the situation, i dont hold an opinion but if there ws dislike, then surely muslim parents would be outraged by the fact my school has an lgbt society...
    thirdly, idk where you're getting these stereotypes from but there is no dislike of speech.... you really need to justify things more
    and misogyny is rare, im female, but nobody has cut me off from having opinions, i give views online, give speeches at mosques, please tell me if muslims were misogynistic thn surely people would not allow me to have views...

    No i didnt imply that at all. I dont for a second think Islam is dominating the UK lool. Just because something isnt happening now doesnt mean things arent heading that way, or are you the type of girl to only worry about diet and lifestyle after you have had a heart attack?

    Ok cool.. up to your points about stereotyping and speach and misogyny. I cant really be bothered to get in a ding dong back and forth about it right now, its a well trodden path.
