Reader comment on item: The Clash to End All Clashes?

One of the most controversial issues that hit the Western world and is primarily driven by the Muslim fanatics is the cartoons depicting Mohamed as a terrorist, western countries are debating whether to ban these Cartoons or not. Some are arguing that publishing such Cartoons disrespect Islam and the religion of Islam some are debating whether these cartoons have insulted Muslims so that they could take the decision of publishing the cartoons or banning them.

The only thing that could be said at this stage of the so called "crisis", is that the fanatics have won and they (the fanatics) are in control of how the world should be running their business; not only the world in the Middle East who are the de facto subjects of the "Islamic" dictatorship, but also they are taking control of the west that have given up the dictatorship of religion to ensure the freedom of religion to all mankind.

The controversial question rotates around the Cartoonist intent "was the Cartoonist attacking Islam in depicting Mohamed as a terrorist". The simple answer to this question is "no" he was not attacking "Islam", he was sending a message to the Muslims and that is precisely what is needed- some one to tell them what they do think about them. Muslims of today praise suicide bombers by the mere claim that it is the message of Islam that allows for such acts, so what will Mohamed be in the end of this whole fiasco except the leader of the religion of terrorism in modern history. Muslim leadership attempts to explain, normally focus on providing clarifications about the message of Mohamed being a message of peace, such clarifications serve to add to the hypocrisy that the same Muslim leadership preaches and never practices. In today's world of the so called Muslim fanatic followers of Mohamed, Mohamed seems to have come with the message of terror. This terror is what we see every day in the suicide bombers activities in Iraq by Muslims, killing Muslims, who are presumably less Muslims than the terrorists real Muslims.

I really do not expect a Danish Cartoonist to be a theologian who understands the essence of Mohamed's message. needless to say that the so called Muslims themselves do not agree on the essence of that message until now. What Mohamed came with and preached as a prophet means nothing in today's realities of what his followers are preaching and practicing. His followers are preaching terror and destruction in the name of Mohamed and Mohamed's message.

I am puzzled with the Muslims reaction and can't stop asking myself the question of why are these who are burning Embassies, and flags, with the nastiest demonstrations of hate and anger are so upset that Mohamed have been caricatured as a suicide bomber and a terrorist. This is precisely the message that the Muslim fanatics are sending to the whole world, Islam is the religion of suicide bombers, terror, hate, and destruction.

As for the Moderates, who normally are expressive of their disbelief of what is happening with their cowardly silence. I personally believe that they will remain in their state of inertia under which they are doomed to function, under the threat of the larger more powerful dictatorship of the Muslim fanatics that is sweeping its way to the constitution of the governments of terror in replacement for the governments of corruption.
