Yes, it is a sad and disturbing fact that some individuals in the 'higher' places, of more than likely all religions, can twist and warp things to THEIR ways of how they precieve and wnat others to percieve things.It has been so throught history in many religions

You said the fake pictures did not make it to where you are. I don't know where you live, but the one thing I do know is when Laban and his other cohorts traveled to the middle east, it was the 3 fakes that inflamed Islam so badly.

If you look back, the originals were printed back in September of last year. I don't know what they were trying to accomplish, but I do know that many of their people, the followers of the religion they are supposed to be representing, have died because of the dishonesty. I suppose there are people who just do not know how to handle power or what ther percieve as power in a constructive manner. The Imams in Denmark were supposed to work WITH the muslims and the Danish people to promote understanding and to help the muslims become productive citizens in thier new home, and now all they have accomplished is misunderstanding and hatred on both sides. There is misunderstanding in all religions to outsiders, but the only way to get to understand, is to learn, and if the student so choses to convert, so be it. I watched a video where Laban was interviewed on I believe 60 Minutes, the interviewer mentioned all the protests and the people who have died, asked Laban if this was what he wanted to happen and I got chills when I heard his answer..it was "Yes".

So now it is up to not only the Danes to demand some sort of justice for these Imams who have caused all this, but I think if the muslim community who are true and are against this sort of violence will stand up and demand some answers and punishment, we can perhaps one day put this all behind us.

Thank you and good health to all..

PS, I will look for this film you spoke of .
