No risk to anyone's life for beef hamburgers

Reader comment on item: A Muhammad Cartoon a Day
in response to reader comment: Hinduism mistaken for Islam?

Dear Dr Pipes:

Even if someone had offended Hindus and Hinduism by referring to holy cows and beef burgers, for the most part, there is no serious threat to his life or property. You can even draw cow cartoons one per day! But you probably don't need them!

If Islamists learn to be thoughtful instead of reactionary about the Muhammad cartoons, there will not be any need for Muhammad cartoons.
