The Islamic faith teaches that it is wrong to kill a non-Muslim unless it is for defense. Just like a Muslim could only could kill a Muslim only out of self-defense such as the killer was trying to kill their children or something out of that sort. Allah never said a Muslim could kill a innocent person who never harmed them.

This is what the real Qu'ran say about disbelievers..."And fight not with them at the Sacred Mosque (the sanctuary at Makkah), unless they (first) fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them in self-defense".And also a Muslim would feel the same way if a person try to portray Jesus peace be upon him as a terrorist, we feel he is just as important as Muhammed and also the Qu'ran talks about how they (disbelievers) tried to kill him-"And they (disbelievers) plotted [to kill Jesus alayhis-salaam]" .

So my main message here is that as a Muslim I feel it is wrong to kill anybody who is innocent, even Non-Muslims, and burn embassys, but at the same time it is wrong to make fun of any religious figure in any religion whether it is Islam, Christianity, Judaism or any other religion.
