Muslims ask the West to agree that mocking a religion is unacceptable By Sabiha Khan Khan is communications director for the Southern California chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, based in anaheim l on American-Islamic Relations, based in anaheim For the past few weeks, Muslims from all over the world, from Morocco to Indonesia, have been protesting a series of cartoons that depict Islam's Prophet Muhammad in a most insulting and disparaging manner. While some protesters have resorted to violence, which Muslims wholly condemn, the majority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims feel deeply hurt by these cartoons, and many have engaged in peaceful protests. To characterize the maelstrom as a "pro- vs. anti-free speech" issue is to misunderstand it. Muslims believe in freedom of speech and Islam advocates it. Muslims also know that if freedom of speech or expression were ever curtailed, they, as a minority group, might be among the first to fall victim. However, freedom of speech is not a pretext to incitement and hate. With freedom of speech comes great responsibility. Many in the West, including Americans, are perplexed as to how cartoons could enrage so many Muslims. Basically, there are religious and political reasons for the reaction.

ok have at it all, be nice this is my first post
"Muslims feel deeply hurt by these cartoons, and many have engaged in peaceful protests"
When Muslims feel hurt enough to start turning in or killing the Terrorists among them, then I might think about worrying about their sensibilities concerning cartoons.
In the meantime these maggots are part of the problem.
pinging for your expertise
be nice this is my first post
Never say that. Post like you own the place.
Didn't want to register to read the rest of the article, but! I say "get over it, already, and just deal!"
'Sakes, christians have been dealing with such stuff for a long time.
And Jim Jones feeding kool aid to kill the children - must I respect that also? And the Christians who were also Nazi? Tribes who throw virgins into the fire? Tell me, where is the line?
Y'all murder us, we have contempt for you, and you're offended.
Well whooptee dee.
Well, which is it? Do you asslcowns want a jihad, or your mommies? You can't have both!
Muslims think nothing of mocking Jews, but get very testy when Islam is examined and seen to be tyrannical sect bent on murder, rape, and carnage.
The author, Sabiha Khan, is right. Many (including me) feel nothing but contempt for these raving murderers.
Bull Squat... violence is to Muslims as cold is to ice.
I don't give a damned if Muslims condemn violence, they need to END IT - or face annihilation..
1400 years of the same crap, and we're tired already!
Yes, we are. I don't remember any murderous riots over "Piss Christ." Some very mad people, yes -- riots, no.
We save our riots for jury verdicts and sports team victories. :^)
for a contemptible religion.
Ah, they feel our contempt. I DO have contempt for them. I have contempt for them beheading innocent people because they are -- Jewish, Christian, NOT Muslim. I have tremendous contempt for them for teaching their children to hate and kill and murder. I have amazingly deep contempt for them for strapping bombs to their bodies, with nails dipped in feces, to cause as much pain as they can.
Now what? Do something about it, then, Barbarians.
FTB. "T" stands for "the", or "them".
I have contempt for them for a number of reasons, and this is one, that they would take away my freedom to satisfy their fanatical allegiance to the dogma of their religion.
"While some protesters have resorted to violence, which Muslims wholly condemn, the majority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims feel deeply hurt by these cartoons"
ok, let's do math here...let's say the majority is deeply hurt...let's put the majority at 70%.
70% of 1.3 billion is deeply hurt...that equals close to 900 million people, that means 400 million muslims AREN'T hurt.
Now let me be more sympathetic...let's say the majority is 99% that are truly hurt...
99% of 1.3 billion is deeply hurt...that means there are still leaves about 13 MILLION PHUCKNUTS that are ready to blow you away/cut your heads off and rape the ones you love...
sad but true.

Muslims ask the West to agree that mocking a religion is unacceptable By Sabiha Khan Khan
No. We will never agree that it is unacceptable to do so.
What you should do is distance yourself from CAIR because the muslim brotherhood founded that terror related group.
Other than that...ESAD!
Aqua Teen Hunger Force is one of the best toons ever.
I exercise my right to submit that islam, especially mainstream islam is not a religion but a malignant ideology that commits cultural genocide upon any group of people over which it gains power. And they ultimately aim to gain power over all people in the name of their demon god and pedophile prophet.
My oh my! You have such a way with words.
Any religion that can not withstand attacks from nonbelievers is a false religion. Muslim fanatics are proving that theirs is a false religion. They do not have the assurance of divine providence to give them peace in the midst of conflict.
They must rely on murder and mayhem to satisfy their perverse idea of God. This is the business of a demonic blood cult, not a religion of peace and love.
Which is an outgrowth of the Islamic Association for Palestine, which in turn is/was one the principal fund raisers for Hamas, at least in the US, according to Steven Emerson in "American Jihad" and IIRC, "anonymous", actually Rita Katz now Director and co-founder of the SITE Institute , in "Terrorist Hunter".
I quite agree, and if you'll bear with me, I'll recite my view of civil war versus annihilation.
Moderate muslims have an obligation to identify for prosecution, death or ostracism, those Islamofascists amongst them. If they do not, we Westerners cannot separate the good from the bad so well. We will have to resort to wholesale slaughter to defend ourselves.
Let the Islamic Civil War begin, or the Western slaughter of the muslim populace must follow.
Those guys over at CAIR don't have any problems with lying, do they? Muslims LEADERS have placed a price on the heads of the cartoonists...it's a lie to claim the violence is some extreme and odd fringe of Islam.
Renzai says, ""if you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him; if you meet a patriarch, kill him."
Racehorse says, "if you meet Mohammed on the road, pin a tail on the donkey, snap it for a Kodak moment, start a Blog, wait for the price on your head to rise high enough to turn a profit, turn in your brother. Be the first on your block to get your very own gold plated shopping cart.
You're preaching to the choir....
I have said much the same, a number of times in this forum.
In this age of WMD -- the world can no longer tolerate these lunatics -- -they can do too much damage now.
They must either clean up their house, or be buried in it.
We owe the Islamanazis no more consideration than we gave the Nazis or Japanese during WWII.....
Then, maybe these OC Muslims can explain why the Egyptian newspaper which republished these same cartoons before the current firestorm didn't get sacked, raided and torched by their fellow Muslims, yet these same Muslims now are throwing a hissy fit because of the same cartoons?!
They don't understand that we see through their charade of outrage. If they were really outraged, these protests would have started immediately after their original publication, either in Denmark or Egypt not 5 + months later.
Which apparently no longer exists after having a 156 $Million judgment rendered against for the family of murdered American Jewish teenager David Boim, killed in a Hamas terror attack. All it's principals are still running around free though. See this FrontPage story
Sorry this is so bad but I didn't have much time to work on it. Someone else maybe able to do a better job.
It is a short video and features Moe HAMed.
Tell me what you think but Please, Please, spare me the death threats. Thanks.
Here it is:
I'm so sick and tired about their stupid feelings, I could scream.
How much do they care about OUR feelings when they denigrate our religion and our way of life. How about the fact that I cannot take a bible to most Islamic countries, or open a church, or wear a crucifix, or when they mutilate and cut the throat of our hostages, and on and on....
Very funny this is coming out of Anaheim, home of Disney Land and cartoons.
Of course, it's also funny in that it's a major Muslim stronghold in the middle of the OC.
Dated an Armenian girl out there. You wanted to get her blood boiling, call her an Iranina (she was born in Iran). I eventually found out they weren't quite so nice to her family over there, to put it gently.
I find it interesting how upset they get over the cartoons. And I think it IS a true reaction - although inflammed by their leaders. I don't recall the same outrage over the posting of the Abu Grahb "torture" photos from the muslim people. Most of THAT outrage was from OUR press and Liberals.
I imagine the muslims looked and those photos and chuckled saying "That's not torture. Those heads with underwear are still attached to the bodies!"
Laughed my Mohammed off. :-)
Hey Muslims, I think that blowing Christians up and not stopping your fellow Muslims from denying the Holocaust is unacceptable. Why don't you stop?
The cartoons are an outrage, but murdering innocent Christians is Nigeria is okay.
Is this clown for real?! What the hell do the Arab media, governments, mosques, men in the streets, etc. etc. do against Jewish people!
It's time to pull the black power plug on the insane murder cult.
Sounds like a plan!
It was the same after 9/11 -- Ibraham Hooper on the CAIR web site instructed Muslims to use the opportunity to teach Islam. His message for America was, "The event [his word] was horrible, stop picking on us, let us teach you about Islam."
When CAIR produces "Who is Muhammad and Why Does He Say Those Awful Things About Jews" then I'll watch.
And without free speech--- I guess you're absolved of any responsibility.

Just a VALIDATION of the cartoons!!!
