Dear Gary,

If Muslims who are 20% of world population entertain you on TV, you are the luckiest guy in the world. Congratulations. Some of the protesters are killed by police. Did you continue making fun of them? Is that the way that your mind absorbs international news. You must be kidding.

I am against those who support cartoons and say "just a cartoon It doesn't insult. It is common in our culture bla bla" Those are indirect apology or asking mercy. Haven't you learn yet how to apologize directly when you made a mistake. It is very simple and civil manner.

Anyway, sooner or later everybody will learn how to be respectful to religious figures. This is one of those lessons. UN should take some action for stupid behaviours which cause hatred among different cultures.

I am sure that one day Christians will be brave enough react to any insult to their religious figures like Muslims. I saw the video of Jesus ("I will survive") on Google video website. It is unacceptable. Muslims show respects to all messengers including Jesus.
