About freedom of expression, you are right, and I completely agree with you, with one caveat -- that it is used reponsibly.

About news, we have CNN, BBC, Sky, and also al-Jazeera... but I don't really understand your statement, can you clarify it?

I'm sorry to hear what's happening to your religion, but you have to understand, it cannot compare to worldwide broadcast by news media painting muslims as the bad guy.

I've already explained my position on the cartoons and also explained why it upsets so many muslims, but you are right, setting embassies or anything on fire is just wrong. I remember reading somewhere in the Quran (or was it a Hadith?) that a muslim should not cause destruction on the face of the earth. I guess the extremist skipped that line.

As for Arab states, at the risk of inflaming some people, I have to say they're none too bright... looks like it's back to the Jahilliyah (Ignorant) era.

And the War on Terror, it could have gone better, more efficiently, if uprooting terror was indeed the aim. Otherwise I see it as generating more individuals with a vengeance on the USA (like depicted in that movie, "The War Within")

Iran? Why shouldn't they have nuclear power? If I ran a country sitting on a huge oil field, which incidentally happens to be one of my biggest source of income, I'd want to maximize that income by cutting local consumption of it.

Nuclear weapons? We really don't know, do we?

No, of course not. The paper (Denmark's Jyllands-Posten) said it had asked cartoonists to draw the pictures because the media was practicing self-censorship when it came to Muslim issues. The 12 pictures have been printed in September 2005....and nothing bad happenend.... demonstrations against that in Denmark, no demonstrations in Paris, nothing in London in September 2005...

....until a Muslim decided to "internatonalize" this with the help of faked cartoons. And THEN the so called "sponteanous rage" Gaza - right after the elections in the PA. - and afterwards riots in Jarkata, Syria, Lebanon - the people came by the busloads to rally.

And THAT smells a LOT. I would assume, the people there never saw only one of the cartoons - everything was orchestered.

..and look carefully at the picture from London:

seems as if all placards have been written by the same person...well organized

Go and worship whatever you want. The Holy Quran cleary stated :

2:256 Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.

no compulsion in religion is an important concept in Islam. I think it is clear now.

Sigh... Riwka if you are right (about the orchestration of these events) then I really don't know what to say.

If it was orchestrated initially (because I think it's out of control now) then the question is, why? To what end?

Sigh... this really saddens me to no end. Oh well, it's 4 am here, I'm very sleepy now. We'll continue this tommorow.

And thank you to all who participated in this discussion in a civil manner.

May Allah bless all of you who are pure with good hearts.

i dont have a problem with Arabs/Muslims/Chinease/japanease
or any other people in the world ...

I have a problem with someone saying , you dont believe in my relegion
that makes you evil you must die ?. And to me it doesnt matter who is saying it .... its wrong .

I belelive all people should be free. Free to live there lives the way they want.
you want to be a Christian , then be one . you want to be a Muslim ,
then be one. you want to be Catholic/buddist or whatever , then fine be one .

i believe in people , no matter what releigion they are , should be free
from oppression .

As long as you live by the laws that keep you from hurting other people,
you should be able to live your life the way you want .

and for whatever happend in the past...people need to get over it alrdy .
in this day and age . there is no reason for the crap that is going on.

It would be nice if everyone could/would get along, use some common sense and relise that theres more to life than getting upset about something that wont even mean anything a few days/weeks from now.

It would be nice if people worked as hard at making peace as they did at fighting / making war . the world would be better place for sure .

As for Iran with nukes ? can Iran really be trusted with Nukes ?.
truthfully in my opion , i doubt it .
but who knows .

thats fine Deep Blue -- many quotes from the quran that the
Fanatical Muslims didnt seem to read .

maybe you should go and give quran lessons to the fanatical muslims ,
see how they feel about you not converting ? . lol .

and just to add to it - on the history channel, about 4 or 5 months ago
the BBc had a 4 hour show about the middle east .
in wich they interviewed 1000's of muslims .

Just about everyone of the people they interviewed said they hate the west and anyone who doesnt believe in Islam . And that if you didnt beleive in the quran you should die.
But on the good side , NOT all of the people wer anti west or anti anyone who didnt beleive in there relegion.

An organization that calls themselves The Islamic Army, has now declared to kidnap and slice danes to pieces, and damage european interests as revenge for the drawings.

This militant iraqi group, has supposedly connections to the Al-Qaida.
They have specifically mentioned countries as Denmark, France, Holland, Norway and Spain as targets.

The organization has several abductions on their conscience.

Referring to official sources, the police have arrested 76 syrians, 35 palestinians and 38 libanese.

Sometimes a picture can paint a thousand words, and I believe this little cartoon really says it all, about the double standards of the ones acting the fool compared to the Danish newspaper:

I think is the kind of stuff that will also cause the rest of the world to lose patience with those who follow this ideology.

There has been an assault on a danish owner of a hotdog-kiosk!
When the kiosk-owner handed over two sausage-bread, two turkish guys between the age of 18-20, grabbed him, and started to beat him over his hands with a baseball-bat. The reason? -Selling unclean meat!
-The only 'unclean' about the meat, is that it is made from pigs.

The man had to be taken to a hospital for treatment.

Beaten because of a lousy:

What pigs! (and I'm not talking about the sausage)

These people truly want to remake the West in their violent, intolerant image.

When I see the pictures of Muslims holding up inflamatory banners in my
capital city I am absoutely enraged , how can we in the United Kingdom allow such intolerance by a minority against the majority.

I don't know about the rest of the world but it seems like Muslims are untouchable here in Blighty,sure its an old argument now but if I were to walk in to my town centre wearing a shemagh over my head with a banner saying nasty things about islam about how death is coming to muslim cities, i would last about 5 minutes at a conservative estimate.

I am all for freedom of speech and freedom of expression and theese protesters are just as British as I am and have the right to protest but they are just bang out of order,i am a moderate person but the images that I have seen over theese last few days have I have to admit changed my view on Islam from apathy to disgust, and the very sad thing about it all is it will have done the same to many more young British men like myself a minority of which wont have the self restaint to be able to stop themseles from being drawn in to a cycle of religous , ethnic and racial hatred that will be carried on through the generations like a hereditey cancer.

It truly is sad that the very freedoms that we have given to many Muslims in my country can be used against us in such a vile manner by an ignorant minority who seem to want nothing but the destruction of my beloved home land.

I think it's incidents like these that prevent moderate muslims from speaking out against the extremists:

Mohammad Rafiq wrote a book on forced marriages, and has been unwelcome in extreme moslem circles since then. Today he was in the Townhall Square taking pictures of the demonstration, when three second generation immigrants assaulted him and smashed his camera and cell phone.


Elsewhere, the 12-year-old son of a moslem who has has asked for moderation was similarly assaulted by three foreign teenagers. The father has received several death threats.

Where in the koran does it say that it's wrong to draw muhammed. I totally get the being upset over the cartoons, but what about muhammed drawings in general. I don't see a point to it.

BTW - If the muslums don like it, they should quit reading the papers and move out of Europe. End of problem.

Jerusalem Post are going to publish the cartoons today! And keep in mind that this would never have happened if the Imams didn´t publish fabricated offensive pictures of Muhammed...
