The rationalization is incomprehensible

Reader comment on item: A Muhammad Cartoon a Day

To hear the Egyptian Morsi asking our government to prosecute the film maker of this ridiculous youtube triviality is mind boggling to me. It just is an indication of how little these Islamic fanatics understand about free speech and civilized behavior. To them, being civilzed means not insulting the prophet. That is it. They do not regard insulting Jews or Christians as blasphemous and are unable to comprehend. When they continuously say- how would you feel if we maligned Moses or Abrahahm (who happen to be revered by Islam as well but never mind), or the latest fad of making ridiculous comparisons between offending Islam and lampooning the holocaust. All these things just prove how little they are able to understand and how narrow minded and unreachable any dialogue would be.

Comparing the historical event of the holocaust (which is maligned every day by Muslim and anti-semitic holocaust deniers anyway( to perceived insult of a biblical figure says it all in a nutshell.
