Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Freedom Rights or offensive rights

Submitted by Non Muslim YET from Germany (Germany), Jan 31, 2006 at 16:30

This whole freedom thing stinks 100%.I mean today the Danish newspaper apologized with some more or less honest open letter and even the Danish Prime Minister apologzied but this freedom of speech and freedom of the media stinks so very much for freedom of speech and media doesnt mean someone is given the right to insult someone else,it really annoys me how the Prime Minister said that he didnt disrespect Muslims and that he didnt want to degrade Mohamed but that Denmark will insist on its freedom of speech and media...I mean wheres the sence...this so called freedom is ABUSED here and thats it.The fact is they should have known this will have a big effect on Muslims,that they all will feel insulted,so a good journalist had better think about it before printing and editing it,thats it.

Voices in Denmark also say that Satire is untouchable and as these paintings were categorized as Satire they are not touchable as well.All this is very suspicious and full of strange justification:-S.
I can understand Muslims reactions but I still think they should protest without any aggression.
