The AUTHOR of the political cartoon does equate islam and terrorism.
That was the message of his cartoon. Political cartoons express the
view of the author. It is HIS view that Islam DOES equate with
terrorism. The newspaper editors apparently agreed with him.
Islam is a Religion - not a Religion of Extremists,
but a Religion of People.
That's what extremists are .. people.
I don't follow you ...
What would happen if the entire World would Judge
the American People and CHRISTIANITY upon words of mister
1 - Pat Robertson, as crazy as he is, doens't go around demanding
that his followers commit genocide against nations of nonbelievers.
(at least not yet) So if people around the world judged Christianity
based on Pat Robertson, they wouldn't be afraid of him ..
they'd just laugh at him.
2 - He hasn't go enough numbers of followers to make himself
relevant to anything (thankfully).
Why is the Danish Cartoon "OKEY" - and this one NOT?
I said I didn't like either. I wouldn't say either is 'okay'.
What I do say is that the Danish one makes a statement
that is comprehensible. It is possible. It is at least something
that can be discussed with some intelligence. It express' the
an opinion that was formed based on evidence. The cartoon
of Anne Frank and Hitler wasn't based on any evidence or on
any credible opinion .. it was just mud ... and the 'funny' thing
(or sad thing) is that it was mud flung once more at the Jews
who had nothing to do with the Danish cartoon.
If now Jewish EXTREMISTS (and there are
alot of them in Isreal) will go and Burn down a Mosque
- these Cartoonists are to blame, right?
1 - I highly doubt the Jews will go and call for genocide of
muslims based upon this cartoon. Why don't we all hold
our breathe and wait for it? It won't happen.
2 - No. If anyone burns down Mosques and tries to blame
it on cartoons then they are wrong. The only ones to blame
would be those burning down the Mosque. It wouldn't be
the fault of the ignorant cartoon ... it would be the fault of
the person and their reaction.
