As a follow-up to your link to the Danish Mohammed Cartoon issue this topic, I'd like to raise two questions. The casus is the following:

As a reaction to the commotion about the cartoons, this weeks topic of Fotofuck Friday is: "Use historic islamic images of Mohammed in your advertisements of daily products." Visitors uploaded about 170 images.

We've been trough two busy days. The page has been viewed close to
50000 times now.

Some are really funny, some are NSFW, a lot of them are stupid, some are
offensive... Quite a few of those are over the limit of what I feel is appropiate, but this is no time for to censor in any way. Who am I to judge what may and may not stay on our web page when I say that the islamic people shouldn't so offended?


Meanwhile, in Syria, Danish and Norwegian ambasades were burnt. The reason for it seems to be a rumor that a Koran was burnt on a square in Kopenhagen. What would be the best way to respond to that?

Muslims push and push until it gives. Well, it has now given and there's no going back. As a Christian I am insulted that muslims do not believe in freedom of religion. I've read their kuran and believe me when I say that it doesn't matter if peaceful muslims say they are peaceful. Their kuran says otherwise when it comes to tolerance of others. They are intent on conversion to their religion or death.

Give me liberty or give me death…trample on my liberty, prepare for death.

So just noticing that Islamics are on a killing spree is to fan the fires , etc? Just to observe that street riots start at the drop of a Koran is to fan the fires, etc...
whoboy..
