in response to reader comment: This is just a cartoon

It appears to me that muslims very easily take offence of anything they don't approve of. As for the drawings they were never meant to make fun out of your prophet, if so the cartoons would have looked nothing like they did.

And the theme would have been the same through all the cartoons to point out a sigle thing rather than trying to start a debate IN DENMARK, about the issue: Do the medias use self censorship?

No you had to much haste to notice that being inflamed by the danish Imams who them self did the three worst cartoons/pictures.

So now youre running around in your own streets, hurting your own policemen as they try to keep you from harming eachother, or worse start a war in which our people will die in enourmus numbers - get a grip!

If we would make fun out of you, we wouldnt make cartoons of some long dead guy who were poisoned over 1000 years ago.
We would then make cartoons of small thump-sucking bearded muslims babies running around in the streets, screeming "Allah is great" while pouring gasoline on eachother and rather bad copies of the danish flag - that by the way comes from the capes of the danish crusaders as this were their mark, a white christian cross on a red cape.

So infact everytime you burn a danish flag, you burn a christian symbol of jesus - the very christ you all uphold with such great respect?
And dont burn the Norwegian flag either as, their flag comes from the danish (once norway and Denmark was one country) they placed an aditional blue christian cross in their flag as they got their freedom from the danish king.

But you're all excused - you didnt know.

Who is now the ignorant fool?
