Cheap tickets for being celebrity.

Reader comment on item: How the Cartoon Protests Harm Muslims [by Leading to a Separation of Civilizations]

Submitted by Nuray (Portugal), Feb 14, 2006 at 17:58

I condemn the behaviours of the professor who distributed the cartoons to her student in Dubai. I am sure she knew exactly what kind of reaction she would get from the local people. Perhaps it was very appealing to get a cheap ticket to be famous. She should have known how Muslims feel about any picture of Muhammed, peace be upon him.

People who live in West might not understand importance of this issue and they might think it is a matter of freedom of speech but how about someone works in a Muslim country? She should have played a peaceful role among the cultures not to divide them. If educated people behave like that what would we expect from others to resolve the cartoon controversy as soon as possible? It is getting out of hand.
