When you reply to this message, please be sure answer every question and not just those which fits into your statement - Im really looking forward to hear from you again.

Why cant I caricature your prophet, as a mean to start a debate in Denmark?
- Is it because its written in the Quran? but I dont even believe, especially not in Allah or his prophet? So why should rules regarding muslims in THEIR book apply to me?
- It hurts your feelings that I dont see my self as a muslim? I couldnt care less! You are free (I hope) to practice your religion, but dont force the rules or values of the Quran on to me, as they doesnt apply to me.

As for holocaust and the tragedy it was, it has very little to do with caricaturing your prophet or in the danish case what is done in the name of your god and your prophet.

And double standard.... we cant caricature you prophet, but you are allowed to burn the symbol (the danish flag has the white cross of jesus) of you own prophet jesus further more you have made cartoons and pictures of allah and mohammed now and in the past. Dont lecture me about this. As this conflict outsprings not from the cartoons but from unrest and need of an easy victory in some contries in the middeleast.

And as for the question about listen to your mother, Im urging you to discuss this with her our mothers can really teach us some good manners, better than any book, religion or law.
