"... pointed to the Islamophobia in Europe and demanded more ... tolerance across the world...he stressed adding that he expected respect to Islam from everyone..."What a joke!!!! Respect is EARNED - NEVER DEMANDED!!!! And the word is ISLAMONAUSEA' - not Islamophobia. Sane humans the world over are sick and tired of muslim behaviour and demands.WE demand muslims go back to their paradises

Muslims need to learn what "tolerance and respect" means first, before they demand it from others.. SMH
