What are you talking about freedom of speech, if we had any such thing as freedom of speech then why is it Abu Hamza has been sentenced? he was expressing himself but his freedom of speech was silenced because the western officials know that he is capable of waking up the sleeping muslims amongst us, It is obvious that many muslims need to wake up and realise what mr bush and mr blair are up to. But wait a minute the bnp party are free to incite racism and all charges are dropped because they have freedom of speech. If Abu Hamza wore a suit maybe he would have been freed.

It is an obvious truth that although the western public is unaware, the western governments fear the growth of islam so every now and then they spark off something to offend muslims just to see if we still have our Imaan (faith). these cartoons were nothing more than a spark to test our faith and they have found the result, i wont be surprised if a few months down the line another spark is ignited.

One last point i would like to make is muslims believe Jesus to be a prophet of Allah(SWT) and we are offended when Jesus is mocked, because we have respect for him, so im surprised you show such little respect for the man you consider died for your sins(although i dont believe he did die for your sins).
