Darned Euro islamophobes. Oh, wait. Bangladesh? Dude, I thought we already owned that place. No kidding. Anyway, it's not "insulting muslim(s)", but challenging stupid laws that exist only to cement the primacy and supremacy of a particular religion. Gee. I wonder if there was some kind of instigation at services. Maybe someone could ask the imam if he saw something. Kind of a bit over the top? Come on. And why would someone burn an effigy of the newspaper? Wouldn't they just buy one, and, y'know... Yes. I've seen it. It goes: Adult: Boy, what is your name? Boy: My name is Babu. Adult: It is customary to mention Muhammed before the name. Adult: What is your father’s name? Boy: Muhammed Abu Adult: What’s this in your lap? Boy: Muhammed cat Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! Oooooh, a real pinnacle of mockery, that was. No wonder people are pissed. Hum. I wonder if it would have been ok to insult atheists (if they acknowledged their existence) or other religions. I'm betting: probably. Well, stupid, as I've said before. Failure of distinction between religion and state = protected status on that religion, and open season on any other, and on any dissenters. This is political religion in general, and political islam in particular. I hear quite a bit about how islamic political systems vary across the islamic world; a swathe of diversity, I'm told. Yet, political reactions to criticism (which, by the way, the above cartoon does not even qualify as) are the same throughout its entire length: arrest. Persecution. This is supremacism; this is the method of Nazi Germany, of the Soviet Union, of Pinochet's Chile, of Cuba, of Pol Pot's Cambodia, of China. Is this following Mohammed's example? Some people would say yes. Some would say no. We only hear from the former. Anyway, this dead horse has been beaten even deader. Which jackal now shall defend the corpse?
