Religion & Respect

When I lived in Amsterdam my new neighbor introduced himself: “I am Ali from Ghana I am Muslin but I am not an extremist”. How terrible it is that this stranger felt the urge to excuse himself. In line with the new Dutch Political philosophy I should be negatively discriminated living in a Islamic society. I don’t understand that in Thailand not Westerners but Burmese are discriminated, people with the same appearance and same religion. Or maybe the Dutch political movement has it all wrong. Discriminating a specific group of people has nothing to do with religion believes. I might as well that in bad economical circumstances politician in power can expand their power to blame all misery on one minority group. Giving it an religion label makes it just easier to identify who to discriminate. Sorry I am Michael I am from Holland but I respect different cultures & religions.
