Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: Freedom of Speech

Submitted by Umar Azmat (United States), Feb 7, 2006 at 15:24

Dear Julian ,
I am not sure that where in the world you get the notion that most muslims are extremists.

Plz. refrain those generic sentences as that's a mere opinion not a fact. It's the epitome of ridiculousness to say something like that. I am totally against the cartoons depicting Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H.) and why should I not be? I believe freedom comes with responsibility as demonstrated by the American legends such as Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin.

As far as muslims coming to the west and criticizing, that's a whole different issue. Muslims don't critcize the West. Plz. correct your self in knowing that muslims criticize the foreign policy that represents total hypocrisy. Doesn't it? As far as that Iranian contest is concerned, you brought a very good point of hypocrisy that it if something of this adverse nature represents Jews, you (Western media)won't publish it. Why? What happens to freedom of speech now? Same thing goes around with Muslims.

As far as I am concerned, I am also against the publication of such thing that even represents Jews or Christians. Because two wrongs don't make a right....

Hope you consider my comments.
