Muslims in Australia offended by Christmas, ask that it be renamed

Islamization of Australia alert: "Anger over attack on Christmas," from The Sunday Mail:

ISLAMIC RELIGIOUS groups have launched an attack on Christmas calling for it to be renamed and toned down.
A leading Islamic body says the use of the term "Christmas" is politically incorrect because it excludes too many people in multicultural Australia.

The Forum on Australia's Islamic Relations wants a community debate to find an alternative suggesting the word "festive" as a possible replacement.

And a Queensland leader has called for an end to the "automatic imposition" of Christmas on the community, saying the season has been reduced to a "shopping festival".

The attacks have outraged majority Christian citizens, churches, family groups and civic and political leaders. Even some educated Muslim groups have slammed the call.

Islamic Council of Queensland president Abdul Jalal said Muslims have "no right" to question what Christians called their religious festival.

Thanks, Jalal. I will drop my plans to rename Eid ul-Fitr

Wow, how comes that even when the Aurtralian people give them a strict message not to pull the rope to much, they still are being rude ans demand the Christians do dance by their rhythm? I don't get it. They need to REPSECT the hosting state! someone seriously need to stop their rudeness.

tell them its insulting.

It may very well be a myth. But Australia is still mostly Christian and it's their own right to celebrate their "myth" like the want. Muslims have no reason, or RIGHT, to be insulted.

That's just it, Muslims don't respect "the hosting state", which is a lesson for Israelis and all non-Muslims. My advice: Don't be foolish enough to think that you can welcome Palestinians into Israel or any other non-Muslim country for that matter and think you will be able to maintain your native identity. Don't be fools! Do not allow Muslims to immigrate. They are nothing but trouble. Their Islamic dogma is so perverse and hostile that you simply cannot give Muslims the benefit of the doubt.

ISLAM IS NOT THE RIGHT WAY!!!!!!!!
God saved my life in 1987, and sent me back knowing I would say that! I remember watching my body on the hospital bed with someone on my right side, just before coming back!

Islam is satans way of getting "believers" to kill "Unbelievers", so satan wins both! Why would God want to keep giving souls to satan?

Why would God tempt believers by appealing to their greed for virgins and earthly rewards? What if there are no virgins, comfy cushions and thrones with shade from God's light, no endless food and drink to nourish your physical body? Would you still love God?
