Being as academic as possible, I was researching in the consept of Blasphemy in the Arab culture (focus on North African Muslim Arabs). Guess what, I came up with a conclusion that is academically shocking except if one escapes from reality. Here is the result of research:

1- It is eye witnessed that in more than one instance, Moroccan police while doing patrols and especially when they arrest someone, if this person argues, it is commonly know that they swear this way (maal rabbek). Moroccan slang means : what`s the matter with your god!

2- I my self have seen several times people from Algeria say the same expression to express anger.

Question: Why would Algerians and Moroccan demonstrate against the danish paper that insults Mohamed while they do not do any thing to prevent or at least to deny swearing at god. This might help you daniel as an info as it is very precious and you can build on it. So again, is Mohamed better than god!! I just deny the Moroccan and Algerian demonstrations and deny the fact that the danish or norvegian paper gave an appology statement to the news papers in Ageria in specific where this god swearing culture exists.

I want to add that the demonstration not represent a clash of civilizations. I see it like the father who spanks a kin and will refuse strangers to spank his kid. My view is that better not to spank. Once more, a flash of hypocrisy is now revealed. Till I find out something hypocritic some where (West or East it does not matter) I wish you benefit academically from this one..
