Religion, Race and Nationality are Different Things

What I really hate about politics is that politicians have this habit of mixing up religion, race and nationality accidentally (or perhaps conveniently?)

When a terrorist leader like Osama wants to criticize Christianity, he mixes it up with government policies. He will criticize Danish protection of free speech as a Christian institution, when free speech has nothing to do with Christianity.

Or when Malay politicians use Islam and the Malay race to protect their interests. Aren't all people born in Malaysia, Malaysians?
