Am sorry but probably I've missed this during my history class, or probably while listening to the news, or while reading the newspaper? Political cartoon? Is Muhammad (PBUH) now the president of the United States? or is he the prime minister of Denmark? or is he a nowadays practising politician? well excuse me, he (PBUH) is not.. he's the role model of every muslim.

If u cannot understand why muslims are making such a big fuss about "political cartoons", then probably you need to get more educated and cultured about Islam before you comment. It's also applicable to all NO NOTHING readers. No one is negotiating someone's right to express him/herself, it's a free world and muslims do understand that, but when it comes to crossing limits and making fun of Allah's messenger then this is way too much to be tolerable. When we say that jews and christians would never react in similar way if it were Jesus or Moses being mocked, that's true.

I would say probably their beliefs and faith is not as strong as Muslims', hope you will keep that in mind.
