What should a poor Muslim do? (Sarcasm)

Reader comment on item: Another Islamist Assault, Another Western Cringe

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Sep 14, 2012 at 02:01

Dear Dr Pipes,

You are being insensitive. A random citizen of a western nations says something about a prophet who lived fourteen centuries ago. The prophet is probably insulted. What should a poor follower of that Prophet do? What can he do?

Is there a choice except killing a random ambassador of that western country in another random country? The world is victimizing Islamist people and you are ignoring it. You are saying that your right to free speech and your freedom to insult and the right of that ambassador to be alive are more important than the honor of that prophet. How insensitive can you be?
