in response to reader comment: Respect?Give me a break

Dear Just me.....

It's not just you but millions of sensible people think the same way. The reaction over cartoons defies logic. Agreed, we all must respect all religions, no matter what our personal faith is. Similarly, we must appreciate the feelings people have for their faith/ religion.

But this is taking things too far. It smacks of hypocricy, above everything else.
This is gross fundamentalism and crass thinking. I have yet to see a single protest by our muslim friends over beheading of Christians,kidnapping & torture of hindus and open call by Iran to wipe Jews/ Israel out of the face of the Earth !

Bottom line : Yes, the cartoons are in bad taste. But accusing all Danes of blaspheny
& taking this up as a war against Muslims is sheer madness. It's just nonsense.
