R, I want to get back to the subject of this forum for one minute...the cartoons. In your belief it is forbidden to draw a face on your prophet, we get that. In Denmark or any other European, NON muslim countries there is no law against that. The most famous of the drawings is the one with muhammod wearing a turban with a bomb on top. Has it ever crossed your mind to wonder where the artist got that idea from?

I am sure he didn't wake up and think "Hmm..I'll draw a bomb on the turban just because." That is how people of non muslim faiths view muslims. No matter how incorrect you think that view is, fact of the matter is, muslims are known for blowing things and people up.
And as far as muslims in Europe trying to FORCE their beliefs on Europe which as you know, are Christian countries, put the shoe on the other foot. How would people of your faith like it if suddenly if the Danish government said "no more freedom of religion..if you are not Lutheran, the punishment is death"

You do know the whole reason for the English coming here and setteling in America was just that..freedom of religion don't you? The idea of forced religion is old R. It's been out of date for centuries. Would muslims like to be told what they can wear, eat and how many times and to whom they are allowed to pray in western countries? No they would not! It works both ways. Because of the childish and barbaric behaviour of the muslims after the SECOND publishing of the cartoons (which are by no means the first drawing of your prophet..look at Dante), the drawings of yor prophet have increased not only in number but in offensiveness.

Ever wonder why that is R? I'll tell you..it's because the Europeans, the Canadians and the Americans are telling the followers of your faith we don't care about your backwards, out of date beliefs when you try to impose them on us. We will do what we can to offend you more and more. All your people show us is violence on a daily basis. Everyone is sick of it. The protests, riots and flag burnings amongst other childish and violent things are getting out of control and believe me when I tell you this R, Europeans didn't tolerate it centuries ago and they will not tolerate it today. Things are going to get worse, more people will die..but Islam will never take over the world. The muslims who think the jihadists are wrong need to grow a backbone and speak out before it's too late. Is this the legacy you want for the muslims? A bunch of maniacs who burn and destroy things, who kill innocent people because they have some warped understanding of the Koran? That is how people are going to remember muslims if something doesn't give.

Take a minute to ponder WHY people look at muslims with disgust today. This is something that has been building for years but now it's come to a head. We used to view your religion as sort of strange, but we didn't really give you much thought..just an old religion with some strange customs and laws. Not anymore. We view you all as murderers with no conscience, no civilized thoughts in your brains, no business in any country other than your own. Just a few things to think about R.
