Spend a moment and thinking about it, what the cartoons were - images of the Prophet Mohammed as a pig
Therefore, we request the Iranian government and the spiritual leadership of Iran to use their influence and ask the Iranian newspaper not to publish cartoons against Holocaust. Muslims must not do the same what European newspapers did to Muslims. We must rise higher in our conduct. We urge the worldwide Muslim communities to stop violent protests. Violence is against Islam and the teachings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Violence will hurt Muslims only. We must protest against the Danish cartoons but without violence.
The images, were based on an attack and intended to cause this incident.
but it is similar to when those Neo-Nazi's tried to protest through the streets in the U.S. They wanted to get a group of people to lash out and validate their claims.
If I called all Jews or Christians terrorist, I believe that the article would not be published in a newspaper...
I'm not saying that the Newspaper are the same, but the intention is.
