Aw...it is the old “hurt feelings” argument again. Well, it hurts my feelings when Muslims insist on us kowtowing to them!

Why will their feelings be hurt? Simply because they will be MURDERED if they join a real religion that believes in life and joy?

Satan and his religion really hate being reminded every single year of his humiliating defeat at the hands of a *Jew*, for crying out loud.

Smiling takes 6.

Simple, dont let western culture invade you. Yup, put down that Coca Cola, throw away those lightbulbs and generators, ass wipe,computers, motor vehicles.... all the crap western culture and civilization invented and distributed so assholes with money could buy the stuff...like Iran and their nuclear technologies (which we find offensive)..Yup, keep international flights out, cuzz flying is offensive and un natural.. Mohamat would never have endorsed anything other than camels and mules...that way you and your terrorists can stay out of the west...

Merry Christmas to all ...inclusive of the Indonesians!

Chopping off hands/heads, stoning women, forced female circumcision and beatings from the religious police for missing prayer are not excessive and provocative?

Islam is a mental disorder.

Sure— it’s impossible for Santa to put 72 virgins around the Christmas tree. Plus making the Yule tide ‘Gay’ and kissing women under the mistletoe. You know them muzzies is just jealous.
