not an "image" problem

armenian genocide is not an "image" problem
christians routinely beheaded in muslim countries is not an "image" problem
but of course you...refuse to see the kaffir as a human being, so it's an image problem, not real crimes against humanity.
"Susan sent me the links to some rallies and this is what I was adressing in the post above Noah. These rallies said that the organizers, non Muslims, would meet in front of CAIR offices and burn effigies."
what's your problem in the few rallies organized by muslims? they were burning usa flags and israeli flags, I bet you would be willing to take part in those rallies.
"We need to fix the root of the problem which is the image of Islam in the world. If the image of Islam in the world was good, then there would not have been distasteful cartoons, or anything like that."
here is your problem... your prophet beheaded poets who used satire against him 1400 years ago when islam didn't have any "image" you talk about.
normally people can make fun of religion as we used to do with christianity, buddhism, hinduism etc. Your ..religion tells us that you are above criticism and satire, you are above anything. This is not the equality you blab about.
So we would have had the cartoons anyway, because it's the ordinary way to deal with things equally.
Were you talking about equality some posts ago? This is equality, the same way that your imams are saying blasphemy about jesus or anything else, same right is granted to US, ok?
This is the western way of living, if you don't like it, feel free to pack your bags and move back to pakistan.
remember my words, it's not an image problem. It"s SUBSTANCE problem.
