in response to reader comment: I THINK THE NIKE SHOE WAS A BAD IDEA

You obviously have it in for me. Ahh well!

Look around, the western reaction to the death and destruction as a result of a few cartoons is not good.

Religion is a perfectly legitimate target for satire and comedy, what isn't legitimate is the violent response.

If I hear one more muslim saying that these people wreaking death and destruction across the globe are not true Muslims I think I'll go mad. That's because all of you think that this is legitimate. Either that or you are all too afraid to speak out against the mad Mullahs and Imams that continue to preach their vile hatred. All this has come to a head due to Imam incitement, that's your spiritual leaders Bozo.

Hamza got sent down for incitement after infiltrating and taking over the finnesbury park mosque. The previous leaders didn't have the balls to stand up to him. Your religion can't or won't regulate itself which is why it is so dangerous. Islam means peace my arse! Could you imagine the Pope standing in St Peters square shouting death to those that put a crucifix in a vat of piss. No, it sounds absurd doesn't it? But that's the difference we take criticism and satire in our stride. Besides Mohammad kinda missed the boat. Jesus had already risen from the dead by the time he came on the scene slashing and murdering his way through persia.

Just a question. Do you think that under Sharia law you would have the same freedoms you take for granted now? No you'd have to conform, very submissively.
