in response to reader comment: Cartoons many times reflect truth

I find it hard to take these cartoons to be a symbol of freedom of speech. I mean if some one where to offened a Jew the world would go bizzarre. Theres even a word for it they call it "anti-semitism". But when it comes to Islam its okay to invade them, take away their homes, and make fun of their religon in the name of Civilization?!

How many times have you seen muslims insulting other religions? Never, because respect for other religions is an article of faith, one of the things that makes islam the only true relgion
