    That's a reprehensible position. The newspaper were well within their rights to post those cartoons and should not be censored through terrorism. The principle of free speech should be protected and not abandoned because of such scumbags.
    It was a stupid thing to do given the recent terror attacks in Paris over the last month. Why put lives at risk just to prove that you have freedom of speech?

    problem is that Taymiya is like respected by so many people including most of the ISOC on tsr

    ask them to condemn him and most wont
    I hope im wrong but it seems most of the isoc are pretty extreme...but yeah it becomes an issue when people like taymiya aren't condemned....

    Is it really standing up at the expense of innocent lives?

    Well ultimately it would the head of the magazine that would agree to publish the material, so it was his call in the end. The workers are simply doing their job. I thought it was stupid that they publish such a thing at a time of already raised racial and religious unrest in the city.

    The priority to should be safety of people, not freedom of speech. This incident could have been avoided.

    Very sad for those who lost their lives.

    A lot of incidents could have been avoided, but religion has its way in this world.

    What you are advocating is bowing down to theocratic fascism. As far as I am concerned, the people who died today are brave martyrs who fought for free speech and freedom of expression in the face of the scum of the earth. They should be revered, and not reviled as you are doing.

    I read this in the Telegraph as well. How did they manage to get hold of that? They had shot guns too apparently.

    You are deeply mistaken. I somehow doubt they wanted to die, which is different to the mentality of say a jihadist. Essentially you're celebrating the deaths of innocent people saying it was for a good cause.

    I'm not muslim btw.

    Yes, but this is a discussion of the event, not of Islam. Debate of Islamic scripture belongs in the Religion forum, not here. We're not saying Islam can't be mentioned, but we don't want this thread to escalate into a fully fledged religious debate.
    Well then you're restricting our freedom of discussion

    Not at all. I'm saying if you want to discuss religion, do so in the Religion forum. You're welcome to open another thread there regarding the religious implications. That's the last I will say on this; if you have any further questions or problems, please open a thread in the AAM forum.

    Discussion of religious scripture in this thread is off-topic in my opinion. You are more than welcome to create a new thread regarding this in the Religion forum .

    Yes we did we showed that despite the threats of violence we wouldn't be cowed into submission.

    I bet you £5 they'll reprint them in the next copy of the magazine and I now suspect they'll be reprinted a lot more by those who think we should defend the hard won freedoms we have rather than bend over to religious fascism
