in response to reader comment: Islamic Law at Belmont

Christians are not objecting to caricatures and humorous/vulgar portrayals of Jesus Christ. if they objected perhaps these images would be banned or so on (I'm not saying I support that). Muslims apparently do take offense to vulgar/humorous images of their prophet, they are more sensitive to that issue. I don't see why we should be so mad about it. if Americans feel that they should curtail their foreign oil imports, the Middle East can feel that they should boycott Arla and its counterparts. The Saudis apologized for their misled citizens' actions, that didnt stop Americans from curtailing foreign oil imports. Arla apologized Muslims ignored it. J

ust like many Americans perceive Islamists as mainstream Muslims, the Arabs perceived the Danish newspaper's views to be those of the Danish people. Hobbs is just being tacky, I mean okay you're outraged and you don't... take the time to realize that Islamists are Islam's neo-Nazis not the mainstream, but that doesn't mean you have to go and maliciously try to incite further tension. By the way, today a lot of the anger and tension that surrounded the cartoon issue has evaporated. Apart from the most extreme and devout of Muslims, most Muslims are now purchasing Danish products again. The apologies of Arla DID work.
