Okay. I have to admit something. I strayed to another area in Daniel Pipes articles and found this guy's comment. It's infuriating!! I really would like to tell him where to go and where he should stick it, especially after I just got done watching the videos to the rallies in London and New York over the cartoons. They're chanting like a bunch of blood-thirsty brainwashed aborigines. They're chanting 'Jihad' and something about 'off with Denmark's head' and other assorted threats of bloodshed. You can see both these videos at this website: http://www.nefafoundation.org No matter what (whether a country published those cartoons or not) these guys will come up with some kind of negative b.s. to say about it. It's apparent what a bunch of fools we're viewed as to them. If only I knew someone who could tell this guy off. Hmmmm. It would have to be someone with lots of knowledge and wit. Somebody who wouldn't lose their temper as I would. ; )

Comment under the article: CAIR back down from anti-CAIR

"Some form of Sharia laws are already in place not only in the Europe but also in the US.

Here is my point.

Major media outlets did not republish Mohammad's caricature in large numbers. Their decision not to republish was not due to the respect for Islam but for fear of reprisal. One way or the other, the bottom line result is that Muslims made the West follow their Sharia laws that prohibits caricature of Mohammad. Western media and governments chickened out. This is another venue CAIR and like organization take to impose sharia laws. In this method one doesn't have to have sharia law passed by the congress but it is unwritten, unlegislaturized Sharia law that is practiced in reality – as "Not publishing caricature of Mohammad"

People like me who left the barbarism of Islam for the West to enjoy the freedom of expression are back to square one."
