Muslims threaten two entire countries over a picture, and ask us not to generalize

it annoys me to no end when people on this site keep saying that that the western world is racist projecting a negative image on all muslims over this incident. GIVE ME A BREAK! over a few amusing cartoons (if you'd get off your high horses you would find them funny too) the muslim radicals burned flags and called for the death of Denmark AND France. TALK ABOUT GENERALIZATION!

Furthermore there seems to be a point that everyone is missing. I am not a racist and but i will not appologize for generalizing islam as a fascist religion. Look at the countries such as iraq and india where the religion transcends the entire culture, they are war torn, poor and unhospitable. If the majority of your people truly are peaceloving and promote love for your neighbours, why the heck havent you done something about it?

Our western civilization wasnt handed to us our ancestors faught for it and I will too even if it means drawing and spreading my own cartoons. Before you try to dictate to the rest of the world how about you take care of yourselves and stop sucking up all of our aid and support funding?
