thank you for replying to my previous post.

I hvae to agree on this one. Do you know how many churches, greek and serbian, have been destroyed in Kosovo by albanian extremists. As well as in Syria and targeted christians in Egypt. I myself am not religious but this is appalling. And the muslims complain about a video. even though i do condemn that.
