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

Submitted by Yoven (United States), Feb 17, 2006 at 16:46

Muslims feel offendedby the cartoons, they are against free speech! How ironic, what about we ban the Koran because its offensive to all other religions. We cannot criticize the Koran because of muslim sentiments, then about Hindus, Jewish, Christians, Buddhists...sentiments. Aren't we all human? Don't we all have feelings?

How can muslims believe ...their religion doesn't believe in the co-existence of all religions but the ultimate supremacy of Islam. If the cartoons cannot be published, then the Koran should be banned as well because this book in its entirety causes conflict in any aspect of living standards of mankind. ... I read this passage on a website that was a great rebuttal to the cartoons about mohammed ...If a muslim opposes to the cartoons being published, then you should ask them if they own a TV, read Newspapers, own pictures or any drawings of any sort, if that is the case, then they are a hypocrites because Islam, hadiths and the shariah forbids imagery in any of its forms.

Thank you Dr Pipes for your enlightment, peace be upon you.
Yoven.
