    I can't believe no one has touched this one yet. I mean, it's not like they are trying to build a bomb and then destroy an entire group of people.

    Recall it's not all that long ago people were regularly arrested, jailed and even put to the torch in western countries for merely SPEAKING against the Christian God. It was under the general headings of heresy and blasphamy. No cartoons or drawings necessary!

    It is interesting though that none of the links you posted had the balls to display the drawings themselves. Are they just being PC? Or are they afraid of retaliation?:nono::yesman:

    What cartoon? I will judge for myself if it is offensive. Who cares if muslimes are offended?

    Not me.

    They get "offended" at the least provocation - so what?

    Someone needs to teach these sister-killing murderous pigs some manners.

    Nuke 'em all -- let the God of Abraham sort them out.

    This episode is an example of cultural differences that we refuse to appreciate. Muslims seem to take their religion much more seriously than do Christians, and the implications are enormous. Many European corporate executives probably haven't been sleeping well lately. Incensing 1.2 billion potential consumers of your nation's products isn't a wise thing to do.

    On the contrary, I appreciate they're irrational. I just refuse to accept their irrational behavior when it infringes on the rights of others to their own lives.

    Shoot'em all with bullets covered in pigs blood, then let the God of Abraham sort them out:grin:

    Yeah, I agree with Nick. Who gives a fat flying f*** if they are offended by a drawing. I am offeneded by the fact that they want to kill all Americans. Do they care that I am offended by that? No...

    As insane as it is for someone to protest a drawing to such an extent, and as insane as some Muslims are for their extremism, it's equally insane to call for them all to be shot. You use force in retaliation of the INITIATION of force, or against a valid threat of the initiation of force, and no other reason.

    It is fairly easy to discuss the use of force on an internet message board. That does not justify it just explains the hyperbole.

    Palestinians have overrun the EU building, demanding an apology or punishment for those that created the cartoon. They are threatening to destroy the building or something like that. All over a picture, a cartoon at that. Seems like a lot of EU leaders are giving in,, apologizing. Peace loving religion my *** ! Not just the radicals this time, even Saudi leaders are strongly requesting an explanation from the Pope. Will it ever end ?

    The executives of companies that want to sell products to 1.2 billion Muslims. Those companies' employees and their shareholders. The companies that supply good to those companies. Their employees and shareholders. The mayors and citizens of the cities where all those companies are located. Etc., etc., etc.

    And in related news, offended Christians have forced the cancellation of the short lived "Book of Daniel." Many people never had a chance to see the show, since stations were afraid to air it.

    Very true. But it's also only a miniscule fraction of the 1.2 billion who are radical, right? The rest of the Muslim population should most probably realize that Danish companies shouldn't be held responsible for what a newspaper in that free society prints.
