Maybe now they’ll stop mocking the “They Hate Our Freedom” explanation of Islamic Fundamentalists’ vitriol.
Well we have freedom of speech and expression so to the nutjobs. GET OVER IT.
How about. refrain from invoking Mohammed as justification for viewing us as infidels who are going to suffer eternal torment and we won’t take the mickey out of your prophet.
I can’t help but find it interesting that never once has the “Muslim Street” ever expressed this kind of outrage for a terrorist attack, even against fellow Muslims.
However, depicting Mohammed as a terrorist incites them to consider terrorism against all Scandanavians.
Sounds to me like these cartoon hit the nail on the head.
It gets harder and harder to want to help these bastards at all.
I figure it’s just a matter of time before an American newspaper or magazine (probably a conservative one) tries the same stunt; I’m curious to see what happens then. Death threats, followed by hasty apologies? Or will it just get ignored? We’ll see.
Hey, and get this – advised to watch Richard Dawkins
btw, is this “teardrop explodes” Julian Cope? just in case it is, I’d like to state that Tamworth is still the same dog-hole it was when you lived there.
btw Julian, you seem to have been watching a different essay to the one I saw. Did you forget (or not hear) that the fundamentalist cleric you spoke of is a New York born former jew? No religion came off particularly well from interview, and this was sort of the point (like the christian defending his friend who killed the abortion doctor, and then used the bible to justify it.
The Haggard incident also had Haggard trying to tell Professor (in the field of evolutionary genetics) Dawkins the current thinking in his field. Dawkins likening to Nuremburg was used to assert that questions and evidence based research and thinking were discouraged over blind fanatical faith.
I thought this was fascinating TV, and it posed questions which were genuinely interesting. It was blunt and very rude about religion generally, I’d be wrong not to say that.
