What you just said is. ... The insult to the Jews and Christians is explicitly written in your holly book. It is directly calling Jews rats and Christians pigs. And I do not even want to start what the atheists or pagans are called. How much respect you have to these groups. Show me one muslim country that allows these last group to openly even discuss their ideas. How is that for respect? So your prophet ( or whatever you call him) can prescribe death if I do not believe in god or if I believe in multiple gods, but I am not allowed to ridicule.

I would advise you to look in your islamic history and specifically the spread of islam in Indonesia. The early muslims there used street puppet shows to ridicule the local gods and show the superiority of Mohamed. Why then, when the shew is on the other foot , we are not allowed to ridicule your prophet? Why you feel you are in this unique position to express sensitivity about whatever part of your religion, but I am not allowed to choose a portion of my philosophical or believe system to be extremely sensitive about?

Muslims are allowed, even financed to spread whatever believe have all over the mostly pagan Europe, but on the other hand pagans are treated like dirt everywhere in the muslim world.

Here I challenge you show me a publication in the mass media in the muslim world an article that clearly states that there is no God. Even and article that does not mention islam in any way.

I can't hold my breath.
