What do you wanna bet that the Jews won't riot and attack people in thier own country.
Man, everyone takes shots and makes cracks about everyone. The truth is that the world is populated by a bunch of inconsiderate pricks who say stupid inconsiderate things and the Dutch newspaper that printed that cartoon I think falls in that category.

That being said.....STICKS AND STONES....it's been three fuckin days of riots, people are dead...OVER A CARTOON!

You're right, if everyone set fires because of characterizations, epithets or derrogations of their beliefs, there wouldn't be a structure standing on this planet.

Keep in mind, these are the people who tossed the IAEA out of Iran on Tuesday. That shit is unsettling.

This isn't the cartoon but an article from the BBC. Since threats of violence and attacks have come as a result of all this, France, Spain and Germany have all reprinted the cartoon as a sign of solidarity in the cause of freedom of speech. (good for them) There was also another cartoon with Jesus, Moses and Buddha all looking at Mohammed and saying "relax, people make jokes about us all the time".

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/4670370.stm



Some people think that reprinting the cartoon was spiteful. But they only reprinted it because of all the threats. Threats mean nothing in defense of freedom of speech. That's how I see it anyway.

Its kinda funny.

Just last night i was talking to a security guard where i work. ANd he was talking about a woman who he had to have escorted off the property becuase she was a Muslim, and was offended by a game she was play testing. And aparently raised a big stink about having her religious freedoms squashed :)confused), and that the game was blashpemous to Allah :)confused), etc. etc. So then the security guard shows up to calm her down, and defuse her. ANd she starts talking to him as though she should be backing her up becuase hes black, and obviously all black people are Muslims. And started chanting shit to him like "you killed Malcom-X", "you hate Allah". His comment when he was telling the story was "fuck that, im a Jamacin Baptist".

I mean, seriously, if any other religious sect raised as much of a fuss as the damn muslims, the world would be a giant ball of death. Religion of "peace" my ass.

I work at a Jewish organization here in Seattle and the buzz at work today was how Iran is now promoting a contest for who can create the best holocaust cartoon.

In response, we've decided to submit one and see if we win.

HINDUS CONSIDER it sacrilegious to eat meat from cows, so when a Danish supermarket ran a sale on beef and veal last fall, Hindus everywhere reacted with outrage. India recalled its ambassador to Copenhagen, and Danish flags were burned in Calcutta, Bombay, and Delhi. A Hindu mob in Sri Lanka severely beat two employees of a Danish-owned firm, and demonstrators in Nepal chanted: ''War on Denmark! Death to Denmark!"In many places, shops selling Dansk china or Lego toys were attacked by rioters, and two Danish embassies were firebombed....
:crackup
