Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

After reading most of the comments on this issue, the general mood seemed to be pro-freedom of speech without limit to sensitivities. The fact of the matter is that the big losers in this game are the following:

1- The State that gets money from Austria and Germany to pay for the 5 millions less 1 person victimized in the holocaust. That is because opening the freedom of speech on sensitivities will give those jailed historians (Dr Irvin) to fight for their right for free speech, and reevaluate the holocaust victimization that in their theory is much much less than 5 millions. So that was loser one.

2- Loser two is the hypocrites who go out against the cartoons -as they are realy stupid cartoons- , those who say that they respect all religions but we have not heard from them when the Budhist shrines were destroyed by the Taliban of Texasistan. They will confront the duty of defending other religions in the future if they do not want to be called hypos.

3- This opens the doors for similar stupid cartoonists to hurt other religions so other religions are next.


1- The Iranian cause that the West is aginst Muslims got legitimized to Muslims. Result: A unification between Shiites and Sunnites to confront the west. Iran wins public opinion support in Islamic countries and wins time in its the Nuke issue.

2- Local manufacturers in Islamic boycotting - danish and other products- coutries who will benifit from the shifts of the preference that will create a demand for local goods.

3- Bin Laden is an other winner, and he has more than many issues to prove to Mulims that they are targeted by the west.

The last but not the least...
