  • You and the Danish media as well as the rest of other media that re-published the cartoons are not promoting freedom of speech but rather promoting the freedom of ignorance. If you take the time to learn about Islam and the prophet you will be able to understand the significance of what harm these cartoons have inflected.

  • These people are back in the dark ages!
    All this protest is being orchestrated by the mullahs. It appears that the prophet did not have a sense of humor!
    Religion is the biggest confidence trick ever perpertrated on mankind and has caused more misery than any other factor. If Christians were not offended by the humor in the film "The life of Brian" then what the hell have these people to bitch about.

  • I am amazed of the world ignorance on both sides of the issue. Open Koran and read what Muhammad tells his disciples about Christians and Jews and all other "infidels". He calls for killing all infidels in order to bring them to Allah and save the World. So of course he is a terrorist #1. Imagine if Jesus would call for killing Jews and others in order to save their souls. Imagine if Moses would call for killing all non-Jews. The world would be screaming. Insult to the world is not the cartoon. Insult to the world is Islam that calls to kill all infidels.

  • I teach high school English and showed the cartoons you posted to all my classes. We had a great discussion concerning not allowing threats of terrorism dictate the way we conduct our lives, or compromise our First Amendment principles. Good for the Danes. They stood up to Hitler, and sixty years later, they stood up to the Islamonazis.

  • What has the world come to.
    Holy books are unholy.
    Holy lands have been desecrate with the blood of innocents and buffoons.
    Holy leaders are flaming ass holes.
    There is no spirituality, just some fucked up religions.
    If I were your God, I’d piss on all the self righteous religious leaders.
    It is like the fundamentalist of the world are all hell bent on destruction.
    Well my God is loving and has a sense of humor.
    The proof is, he created you bozos and let you live.
    Peace, Love, and Get A Grip.

  • Ignorance is lack of knowledge. Without being able to see the cartoons we are ignorant of their contents and cannot properly debate them. By failing to publish the cartoons, it was the press that was promoting ignorance.

    Rosette, you are the first person to bring up the way the Danes showed their solidarity with the Jews in World War 2. I don't hear anyone else talking about that. Sounds like you are a great teacher.

  • It sounds like the freedom of speech trumps the respect of other people's religion and culture. I have been following the priests child malestation story for a while, so if we follow logic, the picture showing the prophet Mohamed with a bomb in his turban eluding to the fact that he is/was a terrorist, so by saying and deducting that, we could also say that jesus is/was a child malestor himself. And while we are at it there are too many guys in the church, can we deduct that jesus was also guy?...I am not saying that because I glorify jesus as much as I glorify the prophet Mohamed. But I am just igniting the debate over the freedom of speech and the logic of events...
