It is not often I start a thred, but I would like to discuss the fact that:
1) The Western World is up in arms when the 9/11 event happened, killing thousands of innocents.
2) The Muslim World is up in arms almost just as much when a cartoon is drawn in a Danish newspaper (reprinted mind you).
Compare the two: thousands of innocent people die due to a terrorist act, whilst a cartoon is drawn in newspapers in foreign countries.
Now I do not deny that it is against the 'rules' of this religion to depict Mohammed (sp?) in any picture form due to the fact he 'may' be
worshipped as an idol.
Couldn't they piece together any 'willpower' to:
a) Not look at these pictures,
b) Use their willpower not to worship him.
I feel sorry for these people who seem mindwashed, getting overly angry at a cartoon, whilst a *MUCH* worse thing happens in a foreign country (9/11)
and I barely hear a protest from their camp whatsoever.
It really puts things into perspective, doesn't it?
- Oh btw Iran now has a competition in its newspapers to create cartoons of the Holocaust where millions of people died, and put it into a funny
- I do not condone the cartoons, the terrorist attacks or this retaliation of the cartoons by Iran in any form.
