    "Four years after cartoons of the prophet Muhammad set off violent protests across the Muslim world, Islamic nations are mounting a campaign for an international treaty to protect religious symbols and beliefs from mockery — essentially a ban on blasphemy that would put them on a collision course with free speech laws in the West."

    Why don't they put a ban on slaughtering innocent people?

    So let me get this right, it's o.k to strap a 20 lb. bomb loaded with ball bearings to your chest and detonate it in the middle of a crowded street, but there's no fucking way they're going to tolerate someone saying something bad about their religion because that's just wrong.

    Yeah, that makes sense.

    But wouldn't this be a good thing for the Jewish people??? I mean arabs could no longer put them down or their religion due to this law.:D

    hah, that would mean the Koran is blasphemous.

    How silly this idea is.

    Mainstream Islam has condemned suicide bombing. But there are, obviously, extremists within that faith.

    As for the blasphemy ban, *shrug*. There are many of us here who believe that burning the US flag should be banned, and maybe a few of those people are extremists as well. We did put one such to death not that long ago.

    Focus on extremism and you'll not be confounded by, "yeah, that makes sense" contradictions.
     
  5. Good point Merlin. The Muslim countries and in particular the Arab countries are the only countries now where one can find institutionalized Antisemitism.

    The Muslims are the world masters in hypocrisy!
     
  6. All Muslims know that is haram (forbidden) in Islam. What a silly question!

    Seriously, there are no innocent infidels per traditional Islamic belief.

    And all humans are, per traditional Christianity, sinful.

    But that's not enough, no, we'll have to take this a step further, to continue your logic: some Christians molest choir boys, therefore all Christians are pedophiles.

    poor analogy.

    Christians condemn violence from the pulpit.


    (and we despise those clergy who molested children).

    The analogy is fine. Imams condemn violence from their pulpit. And we despise those muslims who terrorize.

    Typical crap from Bernard Richards. Arab countres are Semitic countries. Citizens of these countries speak Semitic languages.

    Only a sheer idiot and an anti-Semite would think that a Semitic country would institutionalize anti-Semitizm :confused:
