The citizen, 63-year-old Helmut G., was told by the court that his yodeling offended his next-door Muslim neighbors, who accused him of trying to mock and imitate the call of the Muezzin.

I'm offended by by weak and ridiculous claims of offence being committed in some cause or another. Remember the boy who cried wolf.

..comes to mind.

I'm getting a little fed up of these complaints against 'our' customs. I'll bet we wouldn't get very far making complaints against the customs of their home countries if we lived there.

Ok I was going to create a thread about this story of my brothers best friend, he is a bus driver in a major city in the uk and a Muslim woman boarded the bus with a full Burka (Seen here on the Right)

click here

The bus driver was shown a bus card with a photo of her on it and she was asked to show her face because she could be using any other persons bus card, she screamed at him then reported him, he is now suspended and awaiting the outcome.?

Who was in the right.? the bus driver or the lady..

Uboat, those letterbox costumes really need to be banned.

I just wonder why these people come to live in western countries, then moan about our way of life.
