What about the sensitivities of non-muslims

Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

Submitted by A.A. (United States), Feb 7, 2006 at 12:04

All the Muslims of the world are up in arms about few cartoons in Denmark , published a few months back. Danes are being beaten up, their products are boycotted (they are losing millions of dollars daily), ambassadors are being called back, embassies are being burned, rewards are being offered to kill the cartoonists, death threats are coming daily to the publishing newspaper and millions of Muslims are on the streets protesting and people are dying in riots.

I bet very few of them have even seen the cartoons. They say it does not matter what the cartoons say, just drawing picture of Mohammed is blasphemy and hurts the sensitivities of Muslims. The punishment of blasphemy is death in Islamic sharia. They demand punishment for the blasphemers and apologies from their superiors.

Yet every Muslim blasphemes daily against Christ and Christianity, Judaism and all other religions by recitation of Quran. Quranic verses blaspheming against Christianity and Judaism and calling these and all other religions false and corrupted are read on air waves and printed in newspapers throughout the world. But no Muslim is ever punished for it or ever apologizes for it.

Some of the quranic verses blaspheming other religions are as follows:

Gods of all other religions shall be the fuel of Hell (21:98-100)

All Gods except Allah are created, dead and false, they all lead to hell (16:20-21, 25:17-19, 29:41-42,37:22-25)

Jesus was a Muslim and a slave/servant of Allah, and not his son (3:52, 4:171-172,4:172, 5:115-117, 5:111-112)

Crucification of Jesus is a lie (4:157)

Doctrine of trinity is infidelity and disbelief, a painful doom awaits for those disbelievers who believe in trinity (5:73)

Christians corrupted the true message (5:14, 15)

People of the book (Jews and Christians) are evil doers, some of whom were converted into apes and swines for their disbelief (5:59-60)

Jews say Ezra is son of God and Christians say Jesus is son of God, they are liars and perverts, May Allah destroy them (9:30)

Mohammed was sent by Allah as a gift to Christians to correct their corruption and misunderstanding of true religion Islam (57:28,4:47)

Why don't the Muslims care about everybody else's sensitivities? Why do they demand respect from the very people whom their Quran calls ( and they believe in it 100%) evil (2:99), diseased (2.10), cursed (2:88), losers(5:53), liars (16:39), worst beasts (8:55) , lowest creatures (58.20), deaf dumb and blind (2.171), descendants of apes and swines (5.60) and perverts (9:30), and who are considered dirty (9:28) like urine, feces, pigs and dogs touching of whom defiles a Muslim and requires ablution
