Havas,

You say: "if you think americans and europeans only but only help poor muslim countries, africans, new papua gunea, commodor islands, latin america, all over africa, etc without expecting any economic or political gains,"

Of course Americans and Europeans help other countries for political and economic gain. That is called capitalism and it is the engine of the world that makes things keep growing, developing and thriving.

"we must not blindly believe to what is told to us by media and politicians. even if insulting to some peoples culture and belief is something very bad you dont go and kill innocent people"

I had to laugh out loud at this statement. Are you saying this with a straight face, Havas? Who goes around killing innocent people because they have been told that their prophet was insulted??

"freedom of expression go on do it. but than dont be surprised if some terrorists use these provocations to make more terrorizm."

Exactly the crux of the matter- you are saying that terrorism /killing/rioting/burning is a justified reaction to freedom of speech . We in the west believe that murder is not justifiable just because you were insulted by something, anything. And you may not have noticed, but other religions are regularly insulted but people do not go around burning flags and bloodying up. Freedom of speech means tolerating others opinions, and everyone has a right to express their opinion whether you find it offensive or not! Muslims are in general intolerant of any criticism of Islam or Mohammed. Until you open up to dialogue about the religion and accept that its ok for some people to disagree, you are being intolerant. simple enough, that is the civilized world.
