Default Danish Cartoon

I'm sure you've all heard about how Denmark and a few other european countries [EXCLUDING THE U.K. AND IRELAND], have pissed off every muslim in the world by publishing a cartoon of the prophet Muhammed with a bomb shaped turban.

As a non-muslim, I think that was totally inconsiderate of them but the muslim reaction to it has been utterly disgusting. Burning danish, norwegian, french and german flags, torching embassies and even in London, there were demonstraters calling for another 7/7 and our government and police forces are just sitting back twiddling their thumbs. They're blaming this on all of Europe which pisses me off as well. Just look at their disgusting openly murderous placards in protests everywhere, including London calling for "death to Europe." Europe is not one country!!! The innocent citizens are not to blame - nor is the government

three words:

freedom of speech


""The New Law of Righteousness," that there "shall be no buying or selling, no fairs nor markets, but the whole earth shall be a common treasury for every man," and "there shall be none Lord over others, but every one shall be a Lord of himself.""

yea but freedom of speech isnt universal. like i cant walk up to someone on the street and say, "You are a dirty pervert" it may be true but i could be sued for slander if it wasnt. you can only go so far with the protection of the freedom of speech.

Especially when you are occupying a country where you are a minority group, you don't insult the majority in such an infuriating manner without retaliation. It was poor judgement on the Dane's part.

Although, it shows how radical some Muslims are. My Muslim friends are horrified how radical Muslims tarnish the truely peaceful name of Islam.

yeah, but the danish government is a democrocy with freedom of expression, speech, press. They have the right, and the ability. What i thought was funny, in london, a muslim was protesting it all with a sign that said "freedom must die".....kinda ironic eh?

Indeed.

This just in- The largest Newspaper in Iran is holding a contest of who can write a cartoon based off of the Holocaust, as retaliation for the Danish cartoon.

Pretty much they said- Fine, you see what freedom of speech is like when you overdo it.

well, I have respect to the relgion of Islam, and to all relgions, but I'm using my freedom of speech.

most of the crime in Islam, is done by uninformed or brainwashed youths.
