European Muslim by tuffix European Muslim by tuffix
Tariq Ramadan is one of my favorite Muslim scholars.
He once said:
“I am Swiss by nationality, Egyptian by memory, Muslim by religion, European by culture, universalist by principle.”

On this video he's talking about being a Muslim in Europe: [link]

It's interesting for both Muslims and Non-muslims for it's about living together as Europeans (Western citizens respectively).

Recently there are many debates concerning Islam, "Islamism" and "the Muslims" in German policy. And it's alarming, how everything is lumped together.
People outside are getting afraid of Muslims more and more. Sometimes, when I'm outside in the bus or subway, I feel the desire to shout out: "Look, I'm Muslim! Don't panic! We're really normal!"
I'm happy to live here and it's not like people would attack me or so. It's just a subliminal suspiciousness, that I feel.

And I'm really disappointed how some of our leading German politicians talk about these things. They always emphasize the Judeo-Christian culture of Germany. But in fact - as Tariq Ramadan (and my professor of cultural history as well) explains - there is a Judeo-Christian-Islamic history and Europe has to view Muslims not as the “other,” but as integral elements of it!


(maybe I'll change the bg..)

You can't be a muslim and a european, no disrespect but they are two VERY different things with VERY different norms and values. the only "islamic history" of Europe is Muslims having always tried to Conquer Europe.

Excellent, now if all of Europe would share this point of view we can start working towards a solution. it frustrates me that Europeans nowadays  have no  clue about their past and cultural heritage, how can you call yourself a European when you have no clue about what makes us who we are? you can't call yourself a christian when you never have read the bible and you can't call yourself a (*insert ethnicity here) when you don't know anything about it. especially in these times we SHOULD know. Muslims know what they fight for our there, it's time for us to be remembered of what WE fight for and who did so before us. aside the fact we're unable to co-exist in one country, if we have ANY respect for our ancestors we need to keep these people out. else we will end up in a civil war.

What do you mean by "Iman" ? 
If you mean the country of Oman, then you're wrong again, as the average IQ in Oman is 83.

You are making threats, you told me I am going to be given a "violent death", and that is a threat.

......wT f muslim people don't flee to Europe because they hate european culture and want to convert them into their (barbaric might I add) culture (< the way most of them practice islam isn't a religious thing it's a cultural thing). Seriously I live in turkey and there are so many Syrian refugees in the streets they don't really do anything to anyone and usually get beaten and harrassed by stupid people. They can't even raise their voice towards racism let alone try to "change our culture". 
A little note: you shamed the western culture so much and... You know letting people express their opinion with art is so much better than preventing them. And if western culture was as bad you said they wouldn't be the wealthiest people you know. Most muslim countries are either struggling with war or poverty.

"Western Muslims" still hold an Islamic culture and Islamic values, they are displeased with living in the west. 
If our art disgusts you, do not come here. You say you don't hate us, but here you are calling us "animals" and "sick".

They are muslim because of the Turkish islamic occupation and you can still see them lagging behind compared to the rest of Europe. Once islam would be removed from that area their situation might improve.

Haha actually no. I'm Albanian myself. I know why albania is poor right now. And it has nothing to do with their religion. Like have you ever been to United arab emirates? They're filthy rich. And muslims. It's because albania was a communist country. Also a little reminder; some sources also say that the poorest country of Europe is Moldova. An orthodox nation.

Neither me nor anyone of my Muslim friends or family members ever uttered death threats. Sure, I felt sad seeing someone insulting a person who's dear to me, but sadness about the insulting pictures and incomprehension and embarrassment concerning the riots was all I felt. However I never felt hate. Wouldn't you be sad if someone drew a really bad cartoon about.. let's say your mother or sister?
The cartoonist's provocation as well as the riots were totally superfluous, so please let's not talk about it (:
