    Here's a little history fact

    We have been using satire to attack religion and politics in this country longer than the islamic ban on images of Mohammed.

    Can I now say I'm offended at this attack on a deeply cherrished tradition and anyone who challenges this tradition deserves what they get?

    So then by your belief a person who believes death to homosexuals should be allowed to draw and speak about it as much as they want because it might make their life miserable if they can't
    No, because they are calling for someone to be killed for their sexuality.

    Freedom of speech does not cover incitement to murder.

    Ridiculing a ridiculous religion is not incitement to murder (other than your own, of course).

    In NO way am I saying that what the terrorists did is justified

    But They did kind of bring this upon themselves. Everyone know how protective muslims are when it comes to prophet Muhammad SAW, and to make a satirical magazine about is obviously going to cause some sort of reaction. Especially as extremist terrorism is rising and is so dominant in the media

    however, saying that the terrorists shouldn't have reacted in that way...
    I have a pet cat called Cocoa.

    I love Cocoa, he's very special and I'm very protective of him. I actually get incredibly angry when anybody talks about him. He's mine - I don't want anyone else talking about him. So don't talk about him. If you talk about him, I will hunt you down and kill you within a week. You've been warned.


    ...


    Well, that was awkward, but I'm glad we got it out of the way. It just means a lot to me, so you've got to understand that you're just going to have to do what I say on this one.

    We're still cool, right?

    Then I can't say much to you. Your views in my opinion are the same in all circumstances
    Mocking gays and mocking Muhammed are the same.

    You cannot allow inciting hatred against gays however which will threaten their wellbeing.

    It's funny that, hundreds of years ago, people got away with publishing satirical cartoons against absolute monarchs who were alive at the time, but get brutally massacred for publishing satire against a long-dead man in 2015.
    It is something people seem to have forgotten. The way satire has been used for centuries to ridicule the powerful and the good is not someting we should be willing to give up so readily

    I hope that this attack will prove a severe miscalculation, and that satire of Muhammad will spread like wildfire

    this would be the best answer to those murderers

    Not one British newspaper ever published any of the pictures.

    Ka'b bin al-Ashraf was a poet who criticized and mocked the Islamic prophet, Muhammad, who, in turn, ordered him to be killed.
    http://hadithcollection.com/sahihbuk...umber-687.html

    I do not "pick" any interpretation. I merely highlight the fact that there is more than one legitimate, scripturally supported version, depending on which source you use.

    It is the insisting that there is only one that is disingenuous and mendacious
    It is the insisting that Muhammad never had his critics killed, for example, and that therefore killing a critic of Muhammad is "unIslamic" that is disingenuous and mendacious, not the pointing out that he did.
    This most certainly isn't a mainstream source, but I agree that many among Muslims "scholars" lead misguided, cruel oppressive cults. Anyone can interpret how he wants, but it's not necessary everyone's interpretation is correct.
    I don't think muslims with other point of views should even try to justify such interpretations. And BTW, it is commonly accepted among Muslims to never quote a hadith from the Quran. Upon further investigation, I found this hadith no where else, in books or other (un)reputable websites. The reference number is fake.
    You must understand the only reason I am typing all this is to refute you claims against Islam as a whole.
    We as Muslims are not answerable for the insane minds of these psuedo mullahs, and I am on the same page as you when it comes to such scums, I dislike them, I disapprove them and I disagree with them.

    An 18 year old handed himself but it is being reported that this was in response to seeing his name on social media and that he was in school at the time. If that is the case, it is the wrong guy.

    How many times did you see him actually get shot?

    How do you know that every shot fired hit the target?
    given the fact that he was on the floor he definitely got "shot" at least twice.
    if he did get shot at all that is

    The fact he is on the floor shows that he was shot at least once before being executed.
