"Jews and Christians abuse cartoon controversy to insult Islam. They hide their fears and hates behind freedom of speech. What a shame on them."

So, because Muslims riot at the slightest provocation, shame on us?

"We Muslims never insult any messenger including Jesus and Moses."

According to Christians, when you claim Jesus is just a "messenger", you blaspheme and insult him. Jesus was not a mere prophet, but the Son of God - the Incarnate Word of God. When you place him below Mohammad, that is blasphemy of the highest order. Unlike a Muslim, apparently, I don't expect you to agree with this and I would not think to harm you or yours over it.

According to Christians and Jews, when you claim Moses was Muslim, you insult him.

"Religion is personal issue for Jews and Christians"

Yes, it is. Just as it should be for any enlightened faith.

"They don't care about religious values any more."

Sure we do. We just have different "religous values" that don't involve murder, riots, beheadings, and rape.

"On the contrary Islam is everything for Muslims."

Which would indicate that it isn't a religion at all.

"They unite easily to protect their values across the world. This is crystal clear proof for what a real religion is and what true believers are."

No, that's the sign of a cultish political system. Frankly, it shows that we (Hindus, Christians, Jews, even atheists) are just plain *better* people than the Muslims rioting over these benign cartoons.

"Danish community couldn't bear %3 minority of its own population. They fueled the cartoon controversy to suppress the rights of existent immigrants. We haven't heard Danish riot like French riot. We heard bomb attack 7/7 in England but not in Denmark. But they caused non-Muslim riot all over the world."

No, Muslims cause Muslims to riot all over the world - unless you are just a bunch of children with no self-control or responsibility for your actions.

"Western governments should solve their internal problems without labeling immigrant problems as Islamic movement. Existent immigrant are 2nd or 3rd generation. They are their own citizen. Western governments should learn what multicultural society is and act accordingly."

Multiculturalism is the problem, not the solution.

"This is their obligation according to their laws. Western people should learn that immigrants exists with their own culture and values."

NO. "When in Rome, do as the Romans do". When you become a citizen of a country, you are supposed to aculturate into that society.

"Therefore, Western countries should NOT disturb Islamic countries for their immigrant problems with their own citizens."

Just how did Denmark "disturb Islamic countries"?

Let me make this clear: non-Muslims do not believe that Islamic dogma is true and are not bound by Islamic laws or taboos. Until you accept that without violence, this insanity will continue.
