Dear Paul: You cannot compare the act the sailors with that of the postal worker who was frustrated by unfairness to him or being unfairly fired etc.

A whole bunch of muslims beat a hindu buddy to death over a cartoon. That is not an isolated incident. Millions of muslims are going crazy all over the world, killing, burning, destroying and demanding death of any one slandering islam and the prophet. Thousands of dollars of reward maney has been anounced for killing the cartoonists .

It is called religious fanaticism.. It is from being brought up without freedom of expression in islam. It is being brought up with the islamic law that any criticism of islam or Mohammed is blasphemy punishable by death.

Mohammed himself had over 70 of his critics asassinated in his life time. One of them was Kab Bin Ashraf: Read on:
Bukhari:V4B52N270 "Allah's Messenger said, ‘Who is ready to kill Ashraf? He has said injurious things about Allah and His Apostle.'
Another critic was a poetess Asma Bint Marwan.. She met the same fate:
Sirat Rasul Allah, Ishaq, pages 675, 676.
The apostle said, "Who will rid me of Marwan's daughter?" `Umayr b. `Adiy al-Khatmi who was with him heard him, and that very night he went to her house and killed her. The day after Asma was killed the men of B. Khatma became Muslims because they saw the power of Islam.

You know that a muslim does not even have a right to think for himself, and cannot change the religion of his birth if he wants to; and doing so is punishable by death according to quran and sunna.
Quran 4.89: Kill the renegades
Bukhari:V4B52N260 "The Prophet said, ‘If a Muslim discards his religion, kill him.'"

Mohammed had apostates killed routinely. Here are a few hadiths:

Ishaq:550 ". The reason that Allah's Messenger ordered Andullash Bin Sad slain was because he had become a Muslim and used to write down Qur'an Revelation. Then he apostatized (rejected islam) after becoming suspicious of some verses which prophet changed after his suggestions.

Ishaq:551 The Messenger ordered Miqyas' assassination because he became a renegade by rejecting Islam."

Bukhari:V4B52N260 "Ali burnt some apostates publicly'

Yes muslims here are not rioting but they have the same mindset. Most of them fully agree with the demands of the millions of rioters that all the cartoonists and blasphemers must be beheaded. Because they know what Mohammed did to the critics. That is religious sharia law.

An that is exactly what the muslim sailors did to their hindu buddy, who probably criticized the prophet and justified the cartoon.. They just carried out a sacred tradition of their prophet of killing his critic.. So how can you compare their religious act with that of the infidel postal emplyee Paul?
