Muslims should be ashamed of Islam.

All religions are nonsense. All religions are fairy tales, to fool people. All religions were born out of ignorance. But it is only Islam which is still shamelessly showing its barbaric behaviour all over the world. Blind believers of Islam have no intention to stop persecuting people, humiliating humanity, stoning women, banning conscience, burning books …

That was last year. We celebrated universal citizenship this year inside and outside of the Paris city hall. People were invited to make their universal citizenship passports.

Bad ad.

This is a bad ad. It seems the organization that has given the ad has been influenced by Hitler to hate people. The Quran is a book of hatred and horror. It is against non-Muslims. True.

Multiculturalism

In our ‘women in secularism’ conference in Virginia, USA, some Western scholars blamed government of France for the banning of burqas.
