"who said that muslims make fun of jews and christians?may be some of them but not all of them." So you admit that some of them do. Not all Christians or Jews (or atheists or agnostics) make fun of Muslims, either, and in this case, as I said, the most offensive cartoons were likely drawn by Muslims (they did not appear in the Danish newspaper.)

"who said that muslims starts to kill ppl when any make fun of them?i don't do that as i know...that's not to be generalized..." I'm not making generalizations. More than 100 people (who had nothing to do with the cartoons) were killed in riots following the publication of the "Mohammed Cartoons" (many of which were provably NOT published in Danish newspapers, and are most likely the work of Muslim cartoonists.) Somebody killed these people. My guess is it was Muslims. What is your guess? Within the past year, one of the Danish cartoonists was assaulted. Guess who did it? (Hint: He wasn't a Hindu.)

You then cop to the crimes when you say "some of muslims may did a mistake..but it was just a reflect to the action..i don't defend wrong ways some people showed their anger...but i blame the one who puplished that." So you DO admit that these people were killed by Muslims, but in your view, it was the fault of the publisher? In Denmark, as in most of the civilized world, they have freedom of speech. Anybody can say pretty much anything he wants unless it's libelous or slanderous or crying "Fire!" in a crowded theatre. If you don't like those laws, don't move to Denmark or any civilized nation. Why not hunt down the Muslims who did the REALLY offensive cartoons and behead them? I would be all for that.

"i think no one can publish anything against jews as it considered as anti.SAMISM...so why you don't say that jews don't have sense of humor...too?" Are you kidding me? Anti-semitism is rampant, but Jews don't bomb Palestine whenever somebody puts out a cartoon. Jews historically have been the leaders in comedy in the civilized world.

Dear grouchobeer..i do respect your point of view..but i have another one and somrthings to say about it..first who said that muslims make fun of jews and christians?may be some of them but not all of them..who said that muslims starts to kill ppl when any make fun of them?i don't do that as i know...that's not to be generalized...last point we have a word in our Quran says(who killed even 1..it seems as if he killed all the people!) so,some of muslims may did a mistake..but it was just a reflect to the action..i don't defend wrong ways some people showed their anger...but i blame the one who puplished that..i think no one can publish anything against jews as it considered as anti.SAMISM...so why you don't say that jews don't have sense of humor...too?

This is a lovely sentiment, but the fact is that several of the "Danish" cartoons, including some of the most inflammatory ones, did not appear in Danish newspapers. Who drew them then? Most likely, the Muslims who published them in the Muslim world. Muslims feel free to make fun of Jews and Christians, with hilarious satire like rabbis eating babies, but when anyone dares make fun of their religion, Muslims start killing people. It's all about having a sense of humor, which some Muslims need to get.
