in response to reader comment: Do not play with sentiments

Dear Mansoor,

You are truly naive in believing that only muslims love their religious figures passionately. As a Christian, my faith in Jesus allows me to be at peace with his diety, and hold firmly in my heart that God does not need a defender! He is omnipotent! If the unbelievers curse and vilify him, I am also at peace with that. If islam (muslims) want respect, it is a two way street, Respect all other religions, and you will get what you sow. Sow disrespect, violence, and hatred, that is what you (islam) will reap. It has been dragging to long for the world to finally confront the nonsence that you preach is the only truth.

Perhaps it is already started. The Danes have discovered solidarity, and will stand firm. Others will follow suit. It is past time for islam to dialogue with the rest of the civilized world, and to find its niche. Evil and violence will not get you that. It will only bring on another purge as in the time of the crusades. We, the civilized world, love our freedom. We are not ready to give it up.
