Well they have been complaining that we built mosques in their capitals and they wanted access to Mecca in return. The fact is there are western businesses in Mecca - Hilton hotel is one.

You really need to think this out.

If you're going to lay claim to anything positive Muslims in general have done you also need to lay claim to all the evil and negative things Muslims have done.

... but I doubt they are being managed in Mecca by non-muslims, and in a riot over some perceived outrage, Western businesses will be the first buildings to be looted and burned by Meccan muslims.

You have never been to Mecca, Dick, although we know some non-Muslims have done it the clandestine way.

I have seen MacDonald, KFC, the rest of American fast food chains, all hotel brands that you know of, and shops of all kind.

What do you think Mecca is? Cave? It has been a business city since years before Islam. The most glittering shopping centre you can find is just next to the grand mosque. And the people are virtually of every nation on earth.

God brought guidance and taught man how to live, after all God is The One who created man.

All these guidance and teaching can't be bad or negative.

Any evilness must have come from man's own folly.

Well, you know what to do next.

Nothing wrong with competing for righteousness. But for now, Paris or Tahirah her muslim name, is way ahead of you.

Is Paris Hilton a Muslim convert with a new name?(Pictures)
http://features.kodoom.com/en/entertainment/i...

Earlier this month a British publication published pictures of Paris Hilton - the controversial Hollywood personality known for wildness and nudity!- "veiled" while performing Islamic prayers, and claimed she has converted to Islam and plans to change her name to "Tahirah," meaning the "pure and chaste." Hilton was also quoted: "Forget Scientology or Kaballah. This is the religion to be in now.... Islam is the new must-have religion."

The news spread quickly when many exuberant Islamic websites duplicated it. An Iranian publication, however, doubted its authenticity and called the news "a gimmick, and a hoax propagated by the Zionist media."

But what is the truth?

In recent years, to boost publicity for her shows and brands, Hilton has shown interest in the Middle East. Last year, to make her new show "My New BFF" into a global franchise, she stopped at Dubai. At the show’s press launch, Hilton wore traditional Arab clothing, jewelry and even busted out with,“Asalamu alaikum.”
...
Hilton's approach to Muslims is not an indication of her desire for an Islamic way of life, but a result of her genius "publicity machine" trying to benefit from today's controversial topics surrounding Muslims. The news of her conversion also seems as a "publicity" hoax, because the same British Tabloid announced shortly afterwards that Hilton has found Islamic rituals and Hijab (head cover) oppressing and has now converted to Buddhism!
