    I think that is fine. The only diety I follow is Liberty and she allows freedom of expression. I don't like to make fun of other people's religion, though I respect anyone else's right to do it. If people continue drawing these Muhammed cartoons and burning Qurans, the hardcore Moslems will eventually become less sensitive about it. The only people fueling the "muslim fire" are the US press.

    I reckon that if the Muslim community is so annoyed about a caricature, they must either approach courts to see whether their annoyance warrants legal action or they must sketch their own caricatures and see whether their supposed antagonists are more mature about the whole thing.
    Quite interesting how often sensitive people get annoyed by cartoons. And the response to that cartoon by certain Muslims? Blow up a bus and kill over a dozen, non-militant people, who may not have even seen the "offending" cartoon.
    Living in South Africa, I am constantly exposed to these double standards and the pathetic mentality of victimization from all races.
    I was about 6 years old the last time a cartoon drawn by some idiot annoyed me. Now, I am not sure of the age of the various commentators here and particularly those with raised blood pressures due to a cartoon, but I suggest you find other shit to annoy you.
    I suggest a few solutions to things that annoy me about your way of doing things: equality between men and women; religious tolerance; banning public executions etc; letting ladies dress up a bit; beating other people less; whining less.
    You will quickly notice that certain cultural peculiarities of one culture do not translate smoothly to another.
    So let's just accept that Muslims should not be reading ANY cartoon in non-Muslim papers.... just in case they find it offensive. Everybody happy and problem solved!

      Sorry, but it seems somewhat unlikely that they are ever going to turn to a rational legal process. It would not necessarily work as blasphemy is not a crime everywhere. This is a mob mentality and an outlet and rationale for racist hatred.

    It seems somewhat irresponsible, bearing in mind that many innocent people in different countries were murdered by Muslim rioters when the cartoons were published in Denmark - and those cartoons were really pretty tame. If we want to make a point about freedom of expression, and we want to risk our own lives to do so, fair enough, but we do not have the right to risk other people's lives to do so.

    I feel for them, not wanting people to make fun of their Prophet. I believe that they do need to develop a little thicker skin. They seem to believe that they have the right to take many lives for something that their Prophet would probably laugh over. Violence does not solve many problems and this is not one of them.
    Similarly, since everyone knows that the Muslims are so extremely over-sensitive about it, I really wish they would quit trying to stir them up. That seems a bit childish and over-reactionary to me also.

    The French ar playing with fire, although I am not familiar with the exact sketch you're talking about. To get respect you have to show it and when you know a society is so fanatic and clenching on to its religion for various reasons, you shouldn't disrespect it.

      This is the most balanced answer I have read. Thank You.

    That was a senseless move in my opinion. It just adds more fuel to the fire. I guess some people want the fire going ...
