"I would like to make a point. The point is that if muslims only had Abu Ghraib and Pat Robertson to worry about, then the West would have little to argue."

I think Mr. Jeremy is not getting the full picture in the world in the last 20 years. And I hope he could answers these questions:

1- Who is responsible for killing more than one million childern in Iraq during the sanction for 10 years?

2- How many bombs were dropped over Iraq during the war campaign to how many planes crashed in 9/11?

3- How many palestinians children died in the last 10 years by the isreali and who is supplying them with weapons?

4- How many civilians died in the war in Afganistan in 2001?

5- How many people been killed by the Arab countries and who is supporting those regimes?

6- How many Muslims been attacked after 9/11 just because they are Muslims?

7- How many Muslims who have nothing to do with 9/11 are been hold in Gwantanamo prison?

8- How many buildings been destroyed in Iraq during the war compared to the two buildings in 9/11?

9- How many Muslims been beating up by US and British soliders in the name of freedom?

This is just a small list, if you want more let me know


Are you actually trying to compare DAILY murders, violence, beatings, abductions, bombings, flag burning, beheadings, and various other childish tantrums to the comments of an idiot like Pat Robertson? Are you actually trying to tell people that they're one and the same? If Christians traipsed around abducting and beheading random "infidels", they would be despised the world over, much as muslims are becoming today.

While the actions of a "few extremist" (I use the term with a great deal of sarcasm) muslims may not define the the doctrine of the muslim faith, I find the inaction of the "voiceless moderates" to be nothing short of condonement, if not outright support. In contrast, Pat Robertson is viewed by almost all Christians for what he really is: a non-representative media personality with a big mouth. Also, the recent re-publication of Abu Ghraib photos should attest to the West's disgust and embarrassment of the actions commited by our own people. The differences here are frequency and humility; the West is embarassed by these FEW atrocities, whereas the families of muslim suicide bombers are financially rewarded by the state!

Muslims can defend and defend and defend their barbaric actions with what little they can find, but until muslim people EARN respect for their faith, they will RECEIVE no respect.

Muslims are offended by cartoons?
Well, I'm offended by islam.
