in response to reader comment: FREEDOMS

Yes, muslims have the right to get offended by drawings, they have the right to burn other countries flags(seems they are quick to burn any western flag lately) and they also have the right to boycott products made in the countries that 'offend' them.

They DO NOT however have the right to threaten and cause bodily harm to Europeans in European countries for selling products made with pork, or DEMAND schools in Europe be segregated by sex because THEY do not believe in letting males and females go to school together. They also do not have the right to come to western countries and DEMAND things to be changed to their ways of thinking.

If a few cartoon drawings hurt the feelings of muslims (and I cannot find, looking at ANYTHING in history up until now that shows they even HAVE feelings) then perhaps they need to go back to the lands where such notions are normal. Nobody has ever asked them in Europe to convert their religion... maybe they -the muslims are the ones who need to step back and change. They only ones I can see who need to apologize ARE the muslims.

And to compare the Danish cartoons to the Holocaust just elaborates on the ignorance in the minds of muslims. But I suppose muslims would know all about something as terrible as that since murdering innocent people is one thing they are good at.
