I'm sick and tired of these times where you have to what what you say/do in case you offend someone or something, in case one nut job takes it too far.
If everyone made fun of everyone else, then how could anyone get offended. Get off the high horses, it's really tiring.
It's not even about people getting sensitive and offended. I to believe in freedom of speech. So many Christians/Catholics etc that I know make fun of God and Jesus and every other person in the bible...that's normal in the "western world. I saw hundreds of cartoons making fun of the bible and heard thousands of jokes about Moses or whomever..
The fact remains that a lot of muslims in the world live in un-educated/underdeveloped countries, not in a democracy, and they seem to enjoy fighting the western believes...hell they kill anything on their path to eternal life in heaven in the name of Islam...so it's better not to provoke them just to avoid more problems. People r dying for this kind of freedom of speech, so it's just not worth it. I would not want to go into hiding because I want to express how I feel about Islam. I would have to watch my back all the time. Like Theo van Gogh who was assasinated in Amsterdam a few years ago. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theo_van_G ... m_director
Moral:If u keep ur mouth shut u might live longer
theo van gogh was a moron according to me who should have better researched abt violence of women than go attack and stereotype whole religion. A bunch of women got abused and they turn renegades and go to him he gets brainwashed and makes a movie insulting and denigrating whole ppl.
"hell they kill anything on their path to eternal life in heaven in the name of Islam"
yeah there are extremists i religion or nationalism (the guy who assasinated rabin for Oslo) so their case isnt unique.
"a lot of muslims in the world live in un-educated/underdeveloped countries, not in a democracy, and they seem to enjoy fighting the western believes"
yea most of them live in under developed but some do live in democratic. Indonesia which has largest muslim pop is democratic, india second largest muslim pop is democratic, pakistan third is quasi democratic, bangladesh is democraic ruled by a woman whose opposition is alos a woman. As long as they burn flags and effigies i dont care but many go over attacking embassies is same as i any third world country and not only restricted to muslim states.
Enjoy fighting west? Ahem we west always think we are more civilised than east and our civilisation is under attack when the fact is for past 500 yrs we have been attakcing other civilisation. In this play who is attakcing whom?
True there are some ppl in east who dont like west but same is the case for us.
lastly but not least I guess u didnt get the whole picture as ur views are only from present western news and sites so u better fooloe ur advice to keep quiet.
