Dear Amitabh tripathi,

British Soldiers are in Iraq. Therefore, Jack Straw was right to not to support freedom of speech. He has responsibility to protect his own people. Danish PM was very wrong not to apologize immediately. He could finish the cartoon controversy but he didn't. As Danish companies continue to lose money he will going to pay bitter price soon.

EU suffers from identity crises. They have problem 2nd or 3rd generation of existent immigrant.
The new coming immigrants are not problem for them They need young and cheap workers to boost economy. But in some areas they have difficulty to provide job for their own citizens. French riot is internal problem of France. This is the conflict between state and its own people. But some people abuse the situation and sell it as the problem of African Muslims who are against Western values. This doesn't reflect reality. If you read more than title of media news you will be agree with me.

At 21st century people will be more mobile and we will live in multi cultural societies. Big companies hire educated people because of their qualifications and not religious values. At the same time big companies are being more sensitive to cultural and political values. Google works for China. It provides only permissible information.

By the way, Are you playing too much video games? Muslims are not gladiators. They just care about their religious values. They have right to protest anything they dislike. I am against burning flags but it shows the intensity of anger some Muslim. Westerners should learn where the freedom of speech should stop. If you make others unhappy and angry how do you enjoy freedom of speech? What kind of freedom is that?
