Freedom of Speech

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

Submitted by Julian (Brazil), Feb 7, 2006 at 14:28

It is true that many muslims are extremists, that cartoons pointed which countries those extremists dwell, that muslims criticize the West but do not stop coming here to settle, etc, etc.

But it is also true that the so-called freedom of speech applies when we criticize muslims. When we want to do the same against jews, we are forced to restrain ourselves. I bet 100 dollars the cartoons created in that international contest promoted by the Iranian newspaper won't be publicized over here.
