Arrested for saying "Allah" - August 22nd 2016, 04:48 PM

Ok, yes, there is more to it. I first saw it on Al Jazeera news. Here is an article off the internet:

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-08-2...-islam/7773242

I found this... disillusioning.

Sorry, but I struggle to understand how the kinds of people calling for his arrest, and most people in our more liberal cultures such as in Europe... can exist together in peace, unless one adapts to the other. And by large, neither appears to want to adapt. Besides, I'm of the opinion that people should adapt to their environment, not the other way round. So, if you're guest or a migrant in another country, respect their customs, and usually you'll be respected back and get along fine. I've traveled enough to know this to be a fact. Isolated cases of truly racist cretins aren't representative of people as a whole, but people do tend to act mildly hostile when you, an outsider, act like things should revolve around you.

It may look like I have digressed, but this is all connected. There have been enough reports by now of Islamists attempting to implement aspects of Sharia law in Western countries. Not much of genuine legal relevance has actually happened besides a lot of noise, but I think this speaks for itself. If I migrated to Japan tomorrow, I don't imagine I'd be calling for them to change their policies and open their borders to even more migrants. Nobody, would like me. How do people in America feel about Piers Morgan going to the USA and criticizing their firearm rights?

P.S. Japan is quite strict with their migration policies. If I were to travel to Saudi Arabia for whatever reason, I would adjust to their ways. I don't even think of this as something optional. If I don't like it somewhere, I'd probably avoid traveling there in the first place.

"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.
