    I don't really feel sympathy for them.... Even though I strongly disagree with the killings, why would you put yourself in that situation >.>
    Ever heard of freedom of speech/expression?

    If you don't feel sorry for someone who was brutally murdered then you have something very wrong with you.

    Yet again, within the space of a few minutes...

    Hatred to an ideology, is fair enough and justifiable within the realms of the supposed 'freedom of speech' which is riddled within the EU. However, stating "violent, aggressive, child-raping misogynist and mass-murdering war criminal" is baseless to this debate about whether followers should be allowed to react in such harsh manners,considering Muhammad (pbuh) did not kill those who ridiculed and tortured him but rather prayed for them " “O my Lord, guide my people along the true path, as they are ignorant of the truth".
    So if these Muslim's are killing people who ridicule Muhammad (pbuh), it comes down to the question; "Would Muhammad (pbuh) react in the same way"? If so, then you are obviously here only to fuel your own personal agenda and cannot differentiate between the sun-nah and how these people react.

    To OP, please stop misleading people with your title; it should say "Muslims" not "Islam" but i guess it's easy for you to not see the difference.


    sometimes he prayed, sometimes he killed....look deeper into books.

    They lied about 9/11, They lied about Iraq, They lie everybody. How can anyone believe the government and one witness saying they did it for the Prophet Muhammad PBUH? How do you know he is not trying to set up Muslims?
    Yeh. Muslims never do anything wrong

    The same logic didn't apply to Brevik though.

    Not that I in any shape or form condone the behaviour...

    But the only intention of satirical cartoons of the prophet and other religious personas are to piss off the followers, and give off the whole 'I can do what I want.'

    They're unnecessary, it's like being in school and repeatedly drawing someone in your class in a really embarrassing wah, being told to stop, but carrying on. And then the person being drawn decides to beat them up. That'd be fine.

    So yeah, should not have been done, but I think inflammatory content shouldn't be published because you don't know (or do know...) how certain groups will react.

    Every time I hear news from France it's more and more disturbing. First the Toulouse murders of defenseless Jewish schoolchildren in 2012, now a massacre of journalists in the heart of Paris. Plus rampant anti-Semitism in France is forcing many of its Jews to emigrate to Israel (http://www.haaretz.com/opinion/.premium-1.635359). Clearly the French government is not doing nearly enough to oppose Islamism within its own borders, which is presumably why 25% of the French people voted for an "anti-Islam" (but really "fascist") party in the EU elections. I'm pessimistic about the future of France unless it undergoes some kind of 21st century political mini-enlightenment. It needs to learn from the mistakes it made prior to and during 1940, or we could witness the second fall of France to this new kind of fascism.

    No one drew it repeatedly.

    It was one issue.

    So it is a completely nonsensical comparison

    They published more than one piece to enrage.

    So not one issue.

    And it wasn't a result of that certain publication.

    If somebody goes out and kills someone because they don't like a cartoon, then they are a ****ing nutter. It's just mental how people can blame the cartoon

    There has been loads of satirical cartoons involving Jesus and nobody gives a ****. We can't ban satire ffs.

    Maajid Nawaz has just been talking sense on Sky News, said a reform in attitude is needed from the Muslim communities as without it and the attitude to things like blasphemy it breeds these sorts of idiots.

    Yes, it was.

    It was particularly because of the Mohammed publication.

    Who cares what you think anyway? You said it would be fine to attack someone for making fun of someone in school. You cannot be taken seriously.

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

    Yes. Forget about common sense.

    What about their rights to freedom of speech and expression? Why should there be one rule for the rest of us and not a special group?

    But then again where do you draw the line between freedom of expression and offensiveness? People can't express what they like if it discriminates against others

    Not disagreeing with that.

    They don't get any media attention that's why, everyone loves to just blow everything about of proportion with Muslims and then they get annoyed and do stupid **** like this. If no one publicised the stuff, Muslims would never have come across. People enjoy just sharing it and Mocking

    Again, I don't disagree. But I don't see the point in publishing things just for the sake of pissing people off. Just breeds hate and stupid responses

    You don't know that.

    It wasn't just one Muhammad publication, there have been more than one.

    If someone was taunting someone and belittling them, making them feel crap. Asked to stop. But continued, they deserve the punch they get.

    hmm..a punch, 12 dead, some with nothing to do with the publication, a police offer executed.....quite a punch. Of course Arab media fairly often produce cartoons ridiculing Jews, the West...some might find them rather hurtful, especially those showing the pope posing with the devil, the holocaust being a lie..a joke, etc...so, I suppose we should probably respond in kind, albeit we have the capability to do rather more than send a few mad gunman in to a newspaper office, we could turn that office into smouldering rubble,.... quite a punch it would be.

    How exactly is punching someone an appropriate reaction when you should tell the teacher?

    Obviously, continual bullying at school, is nothing like printing a cartoon that you have to choose to see. It is a ridiculous comparison.

    Furthermore, printing a cartoon for your readers is nothing like bullying.

    Nope. Not a myth.

    The problem is really people like you that would prefer murderers instead.
