    I just don't understand why they keep making documentaries about Muslims and gays? They did Muslims drag queens and they did one before that too but can't remember what it's called. Tbh they're just doing it for reactions because they know Muslims will react badly.

    Then why do we Muslims get so sensitive and react to so badly.
    Same goes to the Prophet cartoons.

    Why do they draw the prophet knowing it goes against our religion? I don't condone the violent reactions but it's feeding the fire. They expect reactions and then when they do get a reaction they say "why do they act out? It's only a few cartoons?" I just don't get it

    They draw these cartoons to provoke us. If you dont react, then they will stop. Simple.

    It's about freedom of expression. It's one thing for Muslims to demand that we respect the rules of their religion in their own countries, but it's quite another to demand that we censor ourselves here in the West because we might express something that goes against Islam.

    You have to remember, here we allow people to do things like burn flags or spit on symbols they don't like. To draw caricatures of things we don't like.

    It's really as simple as us rebelling against the idea of respecting Islam and its values by refraining from actions that go against it. It's practically an insult to be asked to do so simply because Muslims have chosen to reside in our countries against our will, for the most part.

    I mean, really, what are you going to do next? Are you going to tell us we can't have pork? Are you going to force the women to cover their heads whether Muslim or not? How many of your beliefs are you going to impose on our society? Well, we don't want to respect your beliefs in our society, because we see it as ours rather than yours. It's that simple. And yes, I think some of us would rather die than submit to the rules of Islam.

    To a non-Muslim, not being allowed to draw Mohammed is just the first step down a slippery slope that ends with being forced to put up with the restrictions of Islamic culture and respect its values to a much greater extent than we want.

    Perhaps that's paranoid, perhaps that's not realistic, but when you don't grow up in a religion as strict as Islam, the kind of demands the religion makes seem unacceptably brutal, harsh, and repressive. The religion itself resembles fascism, and frankly people of Western Europe hate tyranny.

    It's not simple. Sorry hun but you've simplified something and act as if it's so easy. It's not.
