There is no excuse for anti-semitism. It belongs to a group of intolerances.

Criticism of the Israeli government and their policies can be made without resorting to blaming all Israelis for what's...

Mere use of the word "ban" here has clear connotations. It has connotations of a desire to prevent something, to restrict the ability of something. Really, what needs to happen is not a ban but a...

And people like me will always be there to show you how wrong and extreme your own views really are. I think it's pretty clear who's being the reasonable one and who isn't. You're going about this in...

I disagree with this and I think most others would too.

The mere fact this thread exists, and your others proves Islam can be criticised. Plenty of posters are able to articulate their views in a...

Apology accepted. But I still don't support or condone the manner in which you post about Islam on this forum.

Islam and Muslims are open to criticism like anything in life. The desire of some to...

If she's caused this off her own back then she needs to be investigated. Perhaps a ban from their stores or some other passive punishment.

I don't preclude the thought that the DM may be trying to...

I should hope so. Muslims like this are giving the rest of us a bad name. Being a Muslim is a personable thing. You aren't supposed to be making an issue out of it. To make yourself special. Even...

Thanks guys appreciate the recommendations so far.
I've also come across a parade we will try to go and watch. That seems like it will be interesting.

Visiting Northern Ireland - any recommendations on things to see and do?

So a few friends and myself are going to Northern Ireland for a few days, staying in Belfast and then heading up north to the Giant's Causeway.

Does anyone have places to recommend visiting?...

Yes you're right. This is what I think is being missed out a bit. That freedom covers more than just one's own viewpoint. The rush to state such a thing omits the fact that others are able (or should...

Yes it is, that's true. I can't justify denying that freedom given I consider the freedom to practise one's religion to be a valid thing.
